Politics—Tool of Life

September 21, 2015

They say and understand that politics is the name for the way groups of people make decisions about running the country. Presumably, politics is way of life people employ as tool to administer and manage the affairs of any given nation. Hence, politics is a follower of any given idea and thinking but a leader of society. Both follower and leader aspect of any given politics make any particular political system look to be nice or ugly. It requires a mindset when it become a follower of any given idea since it require a discipline, at the same time when it leads a particular society and nations, it need a mindset and discipline too. In this case, the discipline it sets while being follower and leader should be consistent within its own domain since one is interconnected with the other.

Practically speaking, as part of an experience of life, most societies do not have such political ideology of their own but they copy and paste from others by making few adjustments on what they claim. In this instance, such given political thinking and ideologies shape their given political and social dynamics by what they inherit from others even if they claim that they have their own ideology. In fact, one could find them they jump from one ideology to another without making pause and the shift they make in such given aspect of their life is not even noticed by their own since they always take from others but claim as if it is their own invention and thinking.

They sometimes change like HIV virus from one form structure to another, and they are uncatchable in cases , they are quite unpredictable to tell where they are heading since their experience tell that they have no specific thinking and any given ideology which they claim as they copy from others continuously. They end up in the middle of nowhere since the enterprise they have at hand is not their own and they do not have specific identity due to the fact they are already abducted by others ideology and they lose their social and cultural identity and they cannot get back to their original identity and they cannot reverse as they wake up from their deep sleep injected by others given ideologies in life.

Politics is a system where by societies create peace and security in their given societal dynamics by the harmonious integration and management they make thru integrating natural, individual social and institutional resources. In order to maximize the potential and benefit of social dynamics any given political system undertakes, politicians choose their own mechanism—program and ideology—as being instrumental in order to make use of such resources for the common good of society with effective and efficient manner. And citizens could make and take their own material, intellectual, emotional and other benefits from such given political system. Good political system makes its most citizens beneficiary from its undertaking in way that the majority can assist the minority as well.

Politics is defined as the practice and theory of influencing other people. More narrowly, it refers to achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state. Furthermore, politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities. A variety of methods are employed in politics, which include promoting or forcing one’s own political views among people, negotiation with other political subjects, making laws, and exercising force, including warfare against adversaries.

Politics is exercised on a wide range of social levels, from clans and tribes of traditional societies, through modern local governments, companies and institutions up to sovereign states, to the international level. It is very often said that politics is about power. A political system is a framework which defines acceptable political methods within a given society. History of political thought can be traced back to early antiquity, with seminal works such as Plato’s Republic, Aristotle’s Politics and the works of Confucius. It is the activities associated with the governance of a country or other area, especially the debate or conflict among individuals or parties having or hoping to achieve power.

Basically, there are two major concepts and areas of interest in politics and political system. The first is the rule of law and the second is the use of force or power. Both are the pillars of any political system in which any given political way of life consists both components for its own existence and survival , otherwise it is not possible to have such life and existence in any given social dynamics, society and nation. Hence, politics is important in order to have organized and systematized way of life since it rules and governs society. The point is how far any given political system is truthful, trustworthy, justice oriented and fair-minded, which requires political matured mindset and thinking. In this case, the thinking infrastructure of any given political system should be well organized, thoughtful, fair-minded and accountable to what it claims for.

Rule of law and use of force make the balance of any political system and society to function at room temperature. When there is common understanding on rule of law, the public function with common understanding. When rule of law is manipulated and tricked, even if there is superficial peace and stability in that given social dynamics due to the fact that the use of force and armament is the one that is operating behind such tricks and manipulation, such given political system and society lives under jeopardy and the life and relationship that exist between society , individuals and the state will be paralyzed n due course of time as there are certain cases and instances that could have surprising move in which society could revolts against such political system as result of dissatisfaction and disappointments of the system which is not genuine and honest.

Politics requires its own mindset. It is possible to promote and promulgate political ideology with truthful grounds than tricky way of perceptions. When any given society is backward in its developmental programs, the root causes of such given social dynamics should be sorted out and informed in truthful ground and manner. Giving false credits to those seemly values which could create comfort zone to society, but ultimately hinder the long way to freedom and development should be removed from the vocabulary and dictionary of the life of society than keep them as treasure in the museums. This kind of appreciating the wrongs does not benefit the society and the future too.

The integrity and honesty of any given political system and way of life is measured on how far it gives fair justice to the society in its administration, not on how many members and structures it contains. It is the quality of political life of the political system which is at major importance than the number of members it has in its own domain. It is the quality of life of its members of that given political party in relation to the claim it does and the institutional structures along with its claim is by far significant than the claim it does in its program and ideology. When such quality of life is done in profound manner, the individual member, the institutional structure and function and the community life it creates in its own dynamics, success is rest assured since it is working right in its own. Otherwise the claim it does will exist in dream and novel books.
