Let me fail!
Some days ago, I was involved in the usual discussion with some friends that are committed to voting, under the assumption that voting is the natural action of Democracy. By expressing their vote, they still think they are “deciding” how the country policies and government should be carried out.
Me, again, once more, for the infinite time, I kept my position of abstention as the only reasonable, given the current circumstances.
One of my friends then posted something on FB like : “Please let me fail!”.
At first I thought he was in his right to make his choice, even if it meant a failure. But then, after a second thought, I wondered if that was actually so. For if he was already assuming he would fail, shouldn’t he be concerned about the consequences his decision would mean to the rest of us?
Shouldn’t he be allowed to fail, but only in his own private matters?
