politics is all bullshit!!!!!!
    #2992616 - 08/11/04 08:36 PM (12 years, 3 months ago)

Just a big smokescreen, that's all it is, ever has been, and ever will be. To take it seriously at all is just plain ridiculous.

Thanks for listening. :grin:

Some people can't afford to not take it seriously. For the average Palestinian or Israeli, politics is a mattter life and death.

And people fuel this shit when they take it seriously. The only way to get the Earth back is to forget all about it totally, like it never existed. Go back to nature, meet your mother. Who needs it?

pol?i?tics ( P ) Pronunciation Key (pl-tks)
n.
1. (used with a sing. verb)
a. The art or science of government or governing, especially the governing of a political entity, such as a nation, and the administration and control of its internal and external affairs.
b. Political science.
2. (used with a sing. or pl. verb)
a. The activities or affairs engaged in by a government, politician, or political party: ?All politics is local? (Thomas P. O'Neill, Jr.). ?Politics have appealed to me since I was at Oxford because they are exciting morning, noon, and night? (Jeffrey Archer).
b. The methods or tactics involved in managing a state or government: The politics of the former regime were rejected by the new government leadership. If the politics of the conservative government now borders on the repressive, what can be expected when the economy falters?
3. (used with a sing. or pl. verb) Political life: studied law with a view to going into politics; felt that politics was a worthwhile career.
4. (used with a sing. or pl. verb) Intrigue or maneuvering within a political unit or group in order to gain control or power: Partisan politics is often an obstruction to good government. Office politics are often debilitating and counterproductive.
5. (used with a sing. or pl. verb) Political attitudes and positions: His politics on that issue is his own business. Your politics are clearly more liberal than mine.
6. (used with a sing. or pl. verb) The often internally conflicting interrelationships among people in a society.

Politics is a part of everyday life, whether you like it or not.

Spiderwebs are a part of life too, but that doesn't mean I like running into them with my face.

And unlike spiderwebs, politics is reliant upon people to believe in it for it to exist.

It's a "concept"

ahem:

con?cept ( P ) Pronunciation Key (knspt)
n.
A general idea derived or inferred from specific instances or occurrences.
Something formed in the mind; a thought or notion. See Synonyms at idea.
A scheme; a plan: ?began searching for an agency to handle a new restaurant concept? (ADWEEK).


And since it is just a concept, it is just an illusion which has been placed before your eyes.

It is an illusion which derives it's power completely from those who believe it tangibly exists, which it doesn't, as explained earlier.

Enough people forget about it, the concept becomes rare and eventually dissappears.

Gravity is just a concept too, but I don't see people floating off into space.

politics is part of the science of how human beings interact with eachother. more specifically, it has to do with how humans forcefully interract with eachother.

you can ignore the "concept" all you wish, but the tangible realities the field of politics is intended to illuminate will not go away. whether you or anyone else cares to study the meaning behind it, people will continue to engage in forceful interactions and the state will be there as a part of it all.

I think politics is like trying to stop the syptoms without curing the disease. People put such faith in superficial solutions, trying to fix the external world while leaving the internal one a mess. Without enlightenment politics is just the wheel of Samsara turning around, and around, and around...
