    I'm not sure seeing the tourist sites of the world gives one a ton of insight into the complexities of the world.

    Then again, I've been to Epcot and I'm pretty smart about that shit.

    NY'ers are better voters. The world comes to them. They know the people of every third world hellhole on earth are like. They live in the next apartment over and play loud music all night.

    I agree with that, to an extent.

    The reason I stopped claiming to be pro-democracy years ago is because I realized that most people are complete idiots and, unless you're a felon, you can vote regardless of how dumb and uninformed you are.

    I don't think travelling automatically makes people more informed, but the people who are interested in seeing other places and how they work is probably more likely to actually think about how this country works and respond accordingly.

    Nothing frightens me more than a "passionate" voter who can't even say what the candidate that they're voting for wants to accomplish.
