The Strengths and Weaknesses of Voting


By Metropolitan Hierotheos of Nafpaktos and Agiou Vlasiou
The power of the vote for human societies is great and expresses the state of the democracy of each nation, by which leaders emerge. 
Certainly the vote is an expression of the ideologies, expectations and visions of each person, but at the same time it is also an expression of resistance and dissatisfaction. Thus, the vote within it has both positive and negative elements and always depends on the mentality of the voter. While it is a vote expressed by crossing out or on a white ballot, it hides the personal story of each voter. What would we hear if it was possible to make a "psychobiography of the voter"!
