“Voting, we might even say, is the next to last refuge of the politically impotent.  The last refuge is, of course, giving your opinion to a pollster, who will get a version of it through a desiccated question, and then will submerge it in a Niagara of similar opinions, and convert them into – what else? – another piece of news.  Thus, we have here a great loop of impotence:  the news elicits from you a variety of opinions about which you can do nothing except to offer them as more news, about which you can do nothing.”

—  Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death


“Politics is the entertainment division of the military-industrial complex.”

— Frank Zappa
