I believe this quote belongs to one of the ancient Greeks - when his student asked why he needs to suffer over philosophy while other youths are having fun, drinking wine and chasing girls, he replied: it's much easier to roll down than to climb up. As long as a slave is fed and lives in relative safety and certainty, why bother, why make an extra effort? you just sit where you ended up rolling down and enjoy your safety from hazards of free living and straining your brain muscle. This defines low-information voters.
