Ummm, not participating in the democracy (by not voting) would have to be slightly MORE anti-democratic, wouldn't you say, perfesser? After all, the only guaranteed impact a citizen can have on government is via the ballot box since mere conversation is readily and regularly ignored by those in power.

You'll have to forgive me for not having a textbook full of impressive references, it's just lil old me getting the hamster running again.

Sorry. No pearls of wisdom in this oyster.
