What is your take on politics

There are many great quotes on politics * Politics is a way of life * Politics is a dirty game Now I become defeated whether to embrace politics or to shun it. We normally take part in politics when we vote our favourite candidates. They get into power and forget. We also air our views on current political situations. Many people actually do not know what politics is. I believe it is a way of life. It is the way we live and are governed. Politics is here with us and we have to stay with it. What is your take in politics?

I loathed politics when young because I saw it as a dirty game. I still do but also see it as the "art of the Possible". There has to be negotiation and give and take. These days I am very cynical. My favourite saying is "Follow The Money". If you wonder why something is being done or certain legislation is being put through or a company is doing a certain thing - follow the money to understand why. I say that also about Covid-19 and what is happening now. Follow the money!

You give me a new saying here. I love the follow the money thing. Thank you.

You're welcome. The French have a saying "Cherchez la femme", which means "Seek the woman" because they used to think that when something odd happened, there was often a woman behind it! But I am more and more convinced that much of the big stuff these days comes about because someone is seeking money or power or both.
