Politics in the grand scheme of things affects everything around us, whether we like it or not. It’s become a transparent web that has entangled virtually every soul on this planet. If there is a region on this planet that hasn’t been affected by this yet, then I’m sure it’s currently being endowed upon them in some way, shape, or form.
The history of politics, regardless of nation, goes deep and is something that can be easily overlooked in our lives. With the current state of technology though, it isn’t too hard for anyone now to be able to apply some more research into their lives. What humans have had to go through to get to this point is a topic that is in much need of more attention in order to maintain it’s status. Call it a social responsibility if you may, ignorance can only be bliss when the attentive ones have taken affirmative action.
Humans are social creatures and what we see or do always has an affect on those around us, regardless of the time of day, whether for good or for bad, I mean, just our plain existence emits an unfathomable energy. It is that that radiates and turns into the culture and the experiences we all deal with in our lives regularly, so I mean, how you could not find the importance in these matters? Think about it, modern politics generally can only exist because it has to be downplayed from culture.

Knowledge is power; being well informed goes well beyond being ill informed no matter how you look at it. Living in this age of vast information, there really is no excuse to not want to know anymore. The information is available to those who seek it. Our ancestors all have left something behind and it’s up to us to gather and understand this history; after all, one day we’ll be gone, what kind of world do you want to leave behind for the next ones in line?
“Great minds discuss ideas; average minds discuss events; small minds discuss people.” – Eleanor Roosevelt
