So often I hear people discussing politics and they express disappointment over the outcomes and their disappointment is framed as grounds or rationale for disengagement in the political process. When I hear such testimonials I think to myself, what world do they live in? In what other aspect of their lives aren’t there disappointments? In what other context of their living do they experience Utopia? Is it in their health? Is it in their employment? Is there Utopia in their family life?
Life is a struggle. Period. Life is a race. It is a competition for resources. It is a competition for opportunity. I submit that politics is a tool in this struggle. It is not the only tool- but it is a mighty powerful tool that’s a weapon in the hands of others who are cognizant, aware and engaged in this life struggle. It is a race. You have a duty in this race. You have a duty to protect your family in this race. Wake up!
