Ma kohe mõtlesin, et minu eilse postituse üks lause on väärt eraldi postitust (toon selle siis kogutekstist välja):

Ja kes valima ei lähe, see on idioot!

Ma panin küll sinna teksti vahele ühe selgituslause, aga wikipediast leidsin sellise võõrkeelse selgituse:
An idiot in Athenian democracy was someone who was characterized by self-centeredness and concerned almost exclusively with private--as opposed to public--affairs. Idiocy was the natural state of ignorance into which all persons were born and its opposite, citizenship, was effected through formalized education. In Athenian democracy, idiots were born and citizens were made through education (although citizenship was also largely hereditary).
