Politics bore me. There, I said it. It’s not that I find them unimportant, because I know that very often, there’s matters at stake that affect me or people I care about. It’s just that, far too often, basic logic and critical thinking are less valued by the loud voices, which I quickly tune out.
Kind of sad, isn’t it?
That’s not to say I don’t participate. I do, but it feels pointless to get too rhetorical when thinking about issue. I figure, think about a relevant situation that needs a decision, and based a decision on factual information at hand, or a realistic hypothetical situation, and make a choice. If I have an opinion, I do try my best to make it known, when an opportunity presents itself, officially.
I think that’s why politics does not interest me. Much. I pay attention when something big, or local is up. I don’t need convincing to know that actions matter, and also that considered, informed action is more effective. I still can’t believe there are people who participate nearly “blind”, without any critical thought put in. I don’t want to do that, but I definitely don’t find debating fun. This will probably be a very rare type of post for me, but I feel like it’s an important exercise, especially as it’s an election year.
This will also be the most I say about my leanings, anywhere, so apologies in advance for no comments accepted on this post. I might read linked posts, however.
