Monday Morning Quote (Hegel)

"As for popular suffrage, it may be further remarked that especially in large states it leads inevitably to electoral indifference, since the casting of a single vote is of no significance where there is a multitude of electors. Even if a voting qualification is highly valued and esteemed by those who are entitled to it, they still do not enter the polling booth. Thus the result of an institution of this kind is more likely to be the opposite of what was intended; election actually falls into the power of a few, of a caucus, and so of the particular and contingent interest which is precisely what was to have been neutralized." - Hegel

I'm really hoping that the Conservative government (in Canada) loses the next election. Based on poll results the more people that turn up to vote the less likely the Conservative party will win the election.
