The price for avoiding politics is being ruled by your inferiors.
“It is still your country. Do you know what your ancestors did to build a country whose freedoms that remain you still enjoy? Do you know who they had to fight and what they had to do to deliver to you with their dying shaking hands the liberties that you pretend to celebrate? Do you know what your responsibility is? Your responsibility is to preserve and hopefully extend those freedoms to pass the gift on to your children that was given to you.”
