Not to be a stickler, but you could easily argue that abstaining from voting is as sensible as going vegan, since it's all about supporting the status quo of a system that's based on unscientific nonsense. I've taken quiet an interest in democracy the past few years and the more I learn about it, the dumber it seems, kinda like animal agriculture.

If you're curious about the subject I'd highly recommend both Against Elections and Against Democracy. Democracy For Realists is pretty enlightening so far as well, but I'm not done with it yet.

The idea that mob mentality and a tyranny of the majority would occur under direct democracy is incompatible with how the system actually works and did work in places like ancient Athens.

​ If you want a more thorough resource on what direct democracy is and why it's much more democratic than representative democracy.
