Particularly those that are further left. This idea that if they can't have the candidate/policies they want, then fuck it they aren't voting, who cares what happens. It annoys me a ton. I mean I get that compromise and not getting what you want, or even anything close to it, isn't fun but it is also what you have to do in democracy.

You can see it in world history, and US history. We've made a LOOOOT of progress, but it is slow progress. Barring major upheavals (which more often than not result in going backwards rather than forwards) we progress in increments, not in bounds.

It can be maddening, but it is what it is and is better than the alternative of letting the authoritians win.
