The way you talk about politics may be perfectly justified, but does it help or hurt your cause?

As someone who doesn’t use Facebook, I’m curious: Where is the worst for angry and unproductive politics? My guess is Facebook, but I also see a lot on Twitter, and I wonder if the character limit helps or hurts in this respect.

cannot, trust politicians, they lie, they promise, to get into the office soon after they do what they want. all politicians, put their party first not the country. they behave and act like bosses, in reality they are public servant.they forget that. it is a shame.

Well, even I disagree with my fellow Anarchists. After all, I find that even Republicans have good points: - Don’t try to scare people. - Try to appeal to those who are down on their luck. - Forgive people that were once opposed to you. - Give everyone a chance to participate in your party.

I'm no expert on politics, there are people who study the important topics in politics. How politics should be? I don't know. People who don't study politics can't review a government, we don't tend to think on politics. If you ask me about the history of the Democratic party and the Republican party, I would say I know almost nothing. There are political people who don't understand the people who like both the right wing and left wing because It seems to not make sense but actually is ignorance about politics (without knowing everything). I'm not the only person who can like both the right wing and left wing and disagree with the right wing and left wing at same time because I'm no expert on any political party of any country and I'm impartial. Jesus Christ is completely perfect. With the real Christian faith I can't know the private lives of all humans. The problem of Heaven and Hell is that there so many secrets about Heaven and Hell. Secrets about Heaven and Hell are a very long. Political people don't know the supernatural occult. I know so little about politics so I don't try to review them. I don't review movies because I don't know how to make movies. These days politics are people calling out each other in a obsessive way. What people get wrong about the western left wing parties is that they are not gods in any way so this means they are not completely perfect. The western right wing parties are not gods in any way so this means they are not completely perfect. All people in the planet are not completely perfect as gods.

When you read more politics, you know how powerless you are (except you are really very rich or influential). Those politicians who overemphasize your rights only want your donations and votes. And you see people only support to the say of the politicans but not their action. However, being a good person doesn't mean being a good politician, vice versa.

The old tale of the Sun and the Moon: The sun and moon debated which was stronger, they chose to test this by trying to seperate a man and his blanket who was traveling. The moon went first and blew cold harsh winds in attempt to Blow the blanket off, but it just made the mad wrap around it tighter. When the sun had it's turn, it just heated the man and the man removed the blanket. Persuasion and logic are better than force and shame.

*I always make it a point to research my positions. Sometimes it takes me a while, but eventually, I come to the most logical position.* Take De-regulation; This is a very simplified explanation of deregulation and it is far more complicated but in general: too much de-regulation causes asset bubbles which leads to boom-bust cycles and hurts the workers as well as the economy (wealth gap increases and likely causes monopolies), but just the right amount (paired with good regulation on how companies treat workers) can protect workers whilst increasing the GDP, can stabilize the economy, protect the environment, provide low cost goods and services for all, and stop businesses from taking advantage of the government and the consumer. Too much regulation costs the economy big time and hurts the economy/consumers in a completely different way, but the damage is much less than too much deregulation. All in all, In would prefer a government that regulated in some areas of the economy (healthcare, environment, workers protections, some social issues etc) while simultaneously de-regulating other areas of the economy. *Too many regulations undermine the entire goal of regulation; to benefit the social well being of the people. It's like the pacifist issue.* EDIT: _lol nobody is going to read this_

Knowledge Is Key so maintaining a balance of what can be regulated, and what should the people regulate by themselves? The method can easily be done, but you also need to understand that so far we have to deal with the internet and what laws can be considered constitutional and which violates. Due to most nations focusing on useless censorship in entertainment and media it brings to my attention on how we can fix the social issues, monopolies and workers by actually paying attention to how the nation is behaving. I noticed that either the politicians never actually sees what's happening and most of the time we are also dealing with foreign companies purchasing another nation's market which creates a precedent of more problems to deal with, unless we have people sacrificing their time and take the path to politics we cannot progress anymore until we start fixing the issues that are becoming a major factor in our cultures

If you like Pinker I highly HIGHLY recommend reading The Coddling of the American Mine by Jonathan Haidt. It's amazing and seeks to explain the polarity we see today and shines a light on the exclusionary practices of those that practice intersectionality, and victim culture.
