I guess.. if you want to call this enlightened thinking... you can do that. You are frustrated with politics, don't see it worth your time, and would rather focus on other activities. Nothing wrong with that, or extraordinary about it either. But I take exception to the narrative that everything is hopeless in the political realm, nothing good is being achieved, and people who are still fighting in various ways should just give it up and become "enlightened" like you and not even bother voting. Not only will that lead to an even more oppressive government, that's just plain kicking people in the teeth who don't deserve it. Those people still in the fight deserve the utmost respect for their efforts, certainly more than anyone trying to advocate for people to give up, like you do. There is no good reason to work against them.
