Democracy isn’t the problem. It’s the people we allow to take the reigns of said democracy, who are fucking it up. We elect asshat after asshat into every single office in hopes that they have our interests at heart. That’s the BS of it all. When you go around letting every fool with an opinion join the political ring and less than informed people vote or not, because they won’t take a moment to think and listen for themselves, is the reason we end up in the messes we end up in.

Democracy is akin to the Internet and social media. Give people access and crazy comes out of the woodwork. When did we stop voting for leaders and start voting for losers?

If Millennials are losing interest in democracy either by voting poorly or standing idly by, then we all lose. All of us.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
