Agreed.

It's difficult to address the problem of underinformed and uninformed voting, which is indeed an issue, or even address the issue of people who care little about the political system and their voice in it, and therefore don't vote because they feel uninformed. It's also difficult to turn uninformed people into informed voters who are active in their communities.

It's easy to say "fuck you" and tell people to stay home from the polls.

It looks like the author of the piece prefers the easy road.
