The way to develop political awareness is not to keep the masses out of public affairs, but to allow them to exercise political rights. To become an expert you have to try your hand.

August Bebel

We do not learn to read or write, to ride or swim, by merely being told how to do it, but by doing it, so it is only by practising popular government on a limited scale, that the people will ever learn how to exercise it on a larger.

John Stuart Mill
