I think that voter apathy is a smaller portion of a larger problem. People are told they are powerless and that they shouldn't express themselves. They're afraid to express anything because they don't understand what is going on in the world around them.
Just look forward. Don't focus on anything. Someone might actually want to talk. We can't have that. Just look forward. That person wants to say something to me. I'm so embarrassed. Maybe if I just ignore him he'll go away. Just look forward. Don't focus on anything. Safety in anonymity.
Not voting is just part of the greater problem. I can't see how not expressing yourself is a way of expressing yourself.
