I don’t expect people to understand world politics. I know that is an acquired interest. But it is very important to know, be involved and help channelize local politics. It affects our daily lives, it affects the place we create for our children.
“I am not into politics”, just means you don’t care. Then don’t complain, and don’t think you deserve anything from the constituency, city, state or country you live in.
There was a picture I came across, where there are women with banners in their hands demanding the right to vote. Women and men alike fought to have a voice. Use it.
