Different people possess different opinions, definitions and comprehensions about politics. Many individuals continue to [vociferously] express and discourse their stagnant views and loud perspectives about politics, respectively. They “feel good” about what they say, no matter how incoherent their statements are. They wouldn’t mind shunning others’ “political opinion” without realising that the inherent quality of any political debate is cyclically poor.
What matters to them is their own “political ego” and nothing else.
But, it isn’t my business to decide the best political opinion, statement or scientist because ‘politics is inherently a waste of time, energy, mind and wealth’.
Read the following reasons to know why, and figure them out at your discretion without feeling guilty, low and manipulated:
1. Debating politics would not change anything except your personality and social impression, which would ultimately make you look stupid in the end.
For example: You have a political opinion about A. Your friend (frenemy) has a political opinion about B. You justify the debate as a “social process of enlightenment” but what would you or your opponent do with the opinion, when the views have simply backfired, and changed nothing, during the process?
If you believe that your political opinion will “simply and suddenly” change the omniscient, omnipotent and omnipresent nature of the government then you’re absolutely wrong.
Why should a “characterless gang of the armed leaders” give a fuck about your opinion when you’re not part of their monopoly game?
Ask yourself because the burden of proof is not on me.
2. Sharing political opinions is not an act of information-sharing, enlightenment and cognitive emancipation because you’re simply speaking what your government wants you to.
You may believe that you have “freedom of speech” in this case but you’re not doing anything new, simply because your political opinion is manipulative, subjective and asocial.
For example: You believe that government should X and not Y. Your opponent believes that the government should undo X and do Z instead. What you fail to realize is that the government is going to do what it wants without giving a fuck about your political enlightenment because the economics of the government is dependent upon expanding its power and minimising your freedom at the expense of everyone else.
Your political opinion may lean from left to right or vice versa, but your opinion is simply static within the political spectrum of the system. If you believe that your opinion should make sense then try to pose an apolitical statement and see how your frenemies and government reacts to it.
3. Well, do you remember the time the slaves banded together to beg their masters for freedom, and they succeeded? Or, the time the Jews pleaded with the Pharaoh to let them free, and they were successful? Such events never happened and would never happen, and it’s easy to understand that such scenarios are silly, right?
Sadly, many of the loudest “political voices” believe that doing the same thing i.e. “asking our chivalrous master to voluntarily cede the parasitical power, is the only way of achieving equality and liberation”. They believe that if you just vote (harder) for the “lesser evil”, all of our problems will be solved! Little do they realize that voting for a lesser evil is still choosing an evil. You don’t need a political opinion to quantify the size of the evil.
You simply need a psychologist to help you understand that there’s only one evil, and that is the government. Lysander Spooner, once said:
“A man is no less a slave because he is allowed to choose a new master once in a term of years.”
Debating politics may not be an important tool for those who are newly introduced to the ideas of freedom. Neither it will ever be the solution to attaining freedom. Politics is antithetical to freedom since you are conceding that you require a master. Debating politics adds more fuel to the fire.
Freedom does not come from permission.
Stop wasting your time in debating and trying to lengthen the master’s leash around your neck. Freedom will be won when you take control of your life. Freedom comes from recognizing that you are a free, beautiful, and independent human being. Don’t let anyone ever tell you otherwise through “political discussions”.
