Lack of emotion or feeling; impassiveness.
I despise the term apathetic to describe people like me who refuse to vote. I don't see why I should be herded into a polling station to choose the lesser of X number of evils when I think a greater shift in society is necessary, politicians manifest everything I despise, the arrogance for power, the greed, control, it's a popularity contest and as with other popularity contests such as pop idol, I refuse to participate.
It's not apathy, it's quite the opposite.
