DemocracyWhen bad politicians get elected, it's not because there weren't enough intelligent people at the polls. It's because too many dumb people voted. The fundamental flaw in democracy is that the majority of the population is stupid. The fallacious notion that "your vote matters" preys upon this stupidity (and don't think this isn't intentional). This is why smart people see the futility in voting. The solution isn't to get more people voting, it's to scrap the system entirely.
