Excellent rant Dave - people who complain about having to vote or who do want to engage in the political system at all need to live somewhere where they do not have the right to vote or are completely powerless to change their country's policies etc

I'm sure you've heard our favourite story about being on the booths on election day, and the guy handing out how to votes for the Libs was a recent migrant from Myanmar, and kept being so happy about how we were all supporting different political parties, but no one had threatened or attacked him, every was so polite, no official corruption etc. Living in a functional democracy is awesome!

I mean, sure, I wish we had a better political culture - but no violence, dependable election bureaucracy not corrupted by political interference, rule of law! Yay!
