Politics is the process by which groups of people make decisions. The term is generally applied to behavior within civil governments, but politics has been observed in all human group interactions, including corporate, academic, and religious institutions.
Politics consists of “social relations involving authority or power” and refers to the regulation of a political unit, and to the methods and tactics used to formulate and apply policy.
Political science (also political studies) is the study of political behavior and examines the acquisition and application of power. Related areas of study include political philosophy, which seeks a rationale for politics and an ethic of public behavior, and public administration, which examines the practices of governance.
What this has to do with our current Administration, I have no idea. Terms like “rationale”, “ethic” and “administration” have been ripped from the lexicon. The “search and replace” function has inserted “greed, graft, cronyism and corruption” in their place in the political dictionary.
In short, without resolute and non-partisan progressive action, we are f–ked.
Stay tuned for a more extended comment after our official launch on October 3, which begins the countdown to election day.
May the Higher Power of your choice bless our nation.
