“Politics are bad”; we have been told this for centuries.
We are not supposed to know or to talk about politics.
What is politic? Are you political?
I was asked earlier today if my website was political.
I have to clarify this: this website is an independent, individual work by this writer, with no political, religious, or ideological agenda.
I will discuss further this issue of being political or not, and of my hopes for this website!
I am not interested in being political; I do not think there is any politics in the world that would help our Iranian nation more, than the politics of peace!
If I were asked to form a political party, I would create the Peace Development Party, which would focus on individual, family, community, and collective awareness-building around how we as human beings can live beside one another while preserving all of our differences, cultures, religions, and personal ideas.
We need to learn how to keep the peace, to respect each other, to help our human nature, to focus on our positive abilities instead of our weaknesses, and to talk about how to agree to disagree!
Politics is about rules, regulations, and laws by which we can help to create a healthy life together on this planet, within each geographical border, and in our own homes.
I would like to clarify something: politics was not presented to us in a healthy way. It is not what it seems to have become now!
We all live by our own politics, by the ways in which we govern our homes. We are the presidents, kings, and queens of our homes. Our partners and spouses share in the responsibilities and the protective measures in keeping our homes safe, healthy, and happy. The pursuit of happiness is in fact written into the Constitution of the United States of America.
Politics is not a bad thing, not a harmful concept, but it becomes unhealthy when we abuse the power it bestows. Politics becomes harmful when we consider our own rights only and ignore or violate the rights of our neighbors.
Now, I am not a politician but I work for the politics of peace, love, and happiness.
My laws and rules are being governed by my taking responsibility to love my neighbors as I love myself, to respect others as I wish to be respected, and to help my community so that I and everyone has a place to belong to!
Are these bad politics or good?
