In response to Paul Brecht’s recent comments (Letters May 8) and his philosophical stance of not to vote. It seems to me that in terms of political involvement people fall into four categories:
1. They can be part of the problem.
2. They can be part of the solution and believe we have the capacity to contribute to a better world.
3. Take the depressed option that nothing we can do will make any difference so why bother.
4. Retreat into some egotistic delusion of not participating in that it is all beneath us and oh so trivial.
We are responsible for the ways in which we can make a better world for all creatures. So if you have not voted recently owing to an attitude like Mr Brecht’s, get out and vote, you slackers.
Preferably for the Greens.
