Norms and values

Politics, it's a word many people avoid.

It's seldom seen for positive. Once a debate starts a part of the population hits the road and the rest shows interest or is angry. The anger increases if it affects someone in a negative way. Cheering for what benefits others is not a common thing to do. Who lives in poverty will not cheer for the rich getting richer, the wealthy ones will not cheer for a better life for the poor and the middle group gave up on cheering already because they are the ones who have to pay the bill.

How come politics is never cheerful?

Politicians lie and cheat and get away with it, no one punishes them for their behavior. How come a democracy is no democracy in the real essence of the word and the people do not reign, their voice doesn't count?

If I may believe the prime minister of the Netherlands the nation is brainless and too stupid to vote. The "stupid ones" are those who do not vote for him. It makes one think how a PM, one who always talks about "norms and values", can get away with scolding and showing zero respect for voters, their choice, their opinion.

It makes me think about the education level (schools, universities). It dropped fast and it makes me wonder if this is the result of a government investing less money in education and if so if this is done on purpose. Is a new generation of "low educated" people a sneaky plan to give better jobs to AI or low educated foreigners which you can easier fool? Are educated people seen as a threat? Is it safer not to educate too many people as during the past decades was done because those who don't know don't care?

Politics.

In each community even within one household, politics is important. It makes it possible for groups to live together in harmony. Politics is about making agreements and decisions. Norms and values (principals) are a part of it and stand for what is important to all people in this community. It makes one feel secure. It's good to know what society stands for, if you know your voice is heard, you count too if you decide to live somewhere else.

In a smaller community like a tribe or smaller village, it's easier to be noticed and heard. It's way harder to influence decisions made nation- or worldwide.

Living in a mixed community should mean decisions, rules, laws, and rights should be based on all members. Wiping out certain groups from the blackboard is no solution just because they are poor, disabled, elderly people, female, ill, or natives. If all life matters all life should matter and not just those lives of a handful of people.

You say not all life matters?

Indeed it's possible to delete certain groups out of the society. To build a more healthy and wealthy economy this way. It's possible but not without starting a war. Sooner or later the rich will be poor, healthy will get sick and if not get old.

A nation is like a child or dog. Loyal to its parent or master. It will be devoted for a long time, accept to be booted and beaten but it will not undergo it forever. Sooner or later it will attack. A youngster will grab a machinegun and shoot his dad, a dog will tear his boss into pieces. If the burden and the sacrifices asked are too high the brains, common sense will no longer reign, and instinct will take over. Only a clever commander will notice the signals, respond, and realize it'stime to stop pushing people over the edge.

Sadly enough there's not and there will never be because the ego of some is more important than those of the people. 💕

Politics is ome dirty game that even when you try your best to stay out of, it's effects will still be seen in our lives.

Unfortunately the breed of politicians we have nowadays are so terrible, the voters no that was h and every choice is bad, we just have to look for the 'smaller devil' out of the choices.

Education is the backbone of a progressive society but leaders in my country send their children abroad and leave the rest of us trying to squeeze out reasonable level of education to rot. They refuse to pay teachers salaries and allow them to go on strikes, meaning our education is always on and off.

Sad stories because of a terrible government.🔥

Sounds to me as if the same game is played. Not many real teachers teach with us, students, children themselves, or underpaid assistance do the job. At times they are not even educated. If I can choose I prefer homeschooling for mine. What my children know is not what is taught by the school but by me. Kind of sad but reality. It does mean if a child has parents lower educated it will never take a chance.

I doubt it makes a difference who's in charge because they sold us already but I still vote although I know last time they threw it away.

Let's see if we have elections at all. Although we are all forced to do everything online voting has to be done with a pencil on a piece of paper and of course the virus makes it impossible. 🤥

Honestly though! The school experience which many of us enjoyed and benefited from might be a thing the coming generation won't enjoy.

That's because homeschooling is now he watchword as the quality of education obtained from schools is poor.😫

Would like to point out the false self-advertising of politicians and the gullible low education masses. Plus the very wrong distribution and allocation of funds, thus why the masses stay poorly educated but cheer on the projects they can actually see results of from said administration. Nobody will demand better education except those who can see the faults their government is doing

I live in the community wherein getting my political point with the elderly is a form of disrespect. As a young person I have difrerent political stance that seems to question some elderly perspective, and yes my political perspective is unwelcomed to some. It has been the norm here eversince. I dont want to be deemed disrecpectful in our community that's why I keep my mouth shut about it.

Also, some people in the upper social status never really care about a law that may oppress the underprivilege unless it may oppress them too.

Another thing, getting your voice heard especially about the truth is as dangerous as getting yourself involved in a crime. That's why some people resort to blind obedience and keep their silence about the truth because they have a life to protect, they have a family to protect.

@wakeupkitty I ACHE FOR MY COUNTRY, I REALLY DO. I ACHE FOR MY FELLOW COUNTRYMEN. But I'd rather be alive with blinders on my eyes to protect my life and my family than be shotdead, or worse get my family into trouble, that's one thing I won't forgive myself for.

Politics is so vague for me. Because while it promises a brighter future for us, it also leaves injustices going around. It's making me think that maybe the law was made to protect those who are in the higher ups but never really the people.

It gives me confusion @wakeupkitty, schools got to educate us about good leadership and politicians, almost all politicians finished degrees in renowned schools but it is the underprivilege, some wasn't able to finish school or set step on a school , but it is them who has much sympathy for the people, for everyone.

Did the education system failed us? Did it failed us to be more human?

It's real sad out here.

Currently in my country, politics is a social problem, the poor, rich or middle, are suffering the consequences. The rulers look like the covid19. I do not respect anyone pretty ugly, rich, poor, grandparents, young black white people, with the difference that we did not elect him as we have chosen the politicians.

Politics here is not that good,they will only know u when they r running from a position like that of a mayor, congressman, governor n etc., n promise that u can go n ask them for help when u need it but once they r already on it, they forget what they promise, most time it happens n it's a little sad.
