foolish to assume

"...for, in fact, individuals may remain politically quiescent (1) because they feel no deprivation or (2) because they feel real and urgent deprivations but are convinced that protest is futile and, hence, give no political expression to their grievances...Apathy should not be confused with antipathy and alienation."

-from "Power and Pluralism" by Michael Parenti, 1970


The fewer assumptions we make on behalf of our fellow brothers and sisters, the wiser we are for it. There is so much to learn from one much to learn.
