THE ROLE OF POLITICS (POST 1) – THE POWER IN OUR HANDS
At any point of time, it is an individual or a few persons who determine what should be done. Then, politics is all about getting the others to fall in line.
Politics, then, is not about mere governance of peoples, but about influencing thought, controlling minds and triggering actions.
Power and Politics, of course, go together. And the Power comes, always, from the People. The more the number of people you can get to fall in line with your thinking, the more the number of people you can influence and get to do as you bid, the stronger is your political acumen and clout.
So, whether or not we are the ones holding the reigns, we have the power to determine what will be the path taken, provided we assert our individuality, believe in our potential as an individual with power to change the course, and make a courageous attempt to give voice to our opinions and ideas.
