Meditation – Your Vote Counts – 02 November 2020

If you haven’t already voted, either by absentee or in-person early voting, please schedule time tomorrow to visit the polls and cast your ballot.

“If you are bored and disgusted by politics and don’t bother to vote, you are in effect voting for the entrenched Establishments of the two major parties, who please rest assured are not dumb, and who are keenly aware that it is in their interest to keep you disgusted and bored and cynical and to give you every possible reason to stay home doing one-hitters and watching MTV on primary day. By all means stay home if you want, but don’t bullshit yourself that you’re not voting. In reality, there’s no such thing as not voting: you either vote by voting, or you vote by staying home and tacitly doubling the value of some Diehard’s vote.”
– David Foster Wallace – Up, Simba!
