Political Illiterate

The worst illiterate is the political illiterate. He hears nothing, sees nothing, takes no part in political life.

He does not seem to know that the cost of living, the price of beans, of flour, of rent, of medicines, all depend on political decisions.

He even prides himself on his political ignorance, sticks out of his chest and says he hates politics.

He does not know, the imbecile, that from his political non-participation comes the prostitute, the robber and, worst of all, corrupt officials, the lackeys of exploitative multinational corporations.

- Bertolt Brecht
