Those who give a fuck and those who are imbeciles

My disdain for political illiterates is really very big. I have a very poor consideration of those who do not vote, those who do not care about the news, those who do not give a fuck. Many people I know are like that and I think they are imbeciles at this regard. Let Bertold Brecht tell you why.

The worst illiterate is the political illiterate, he doesn’t hear, doesn’t speak, nor participates in the political events. He doesn’t know the cost of life, the price of the bean, of the fish, of the flour, of the rent, of the shoes and of the medicine, all depends on political decisions. The political illiterate is so stupid that he [or she, my note] is proud and swells his chest saying that he hates politics. The imbecile doesn’t know that, from his political ignorance is born the prostitute, the abandoned child, and the worst thieves of all, the bad politician, corrupted and flunky of the national and multinational companies.

Evolution of the political climate

GOOD / transparency is a website I found through Stumble. This one on the the evolution of the political climate (the main issues: economy, jobs, military, environment, immigration) is only one among many intelligent charts. The only pity is that virtually all the contents are referred to American politics. Still, this approach to journalism is definitely new and quite insightful. [Click on the image].
