Politics is obsolete!

Yes, I realize that’s a bold statement – especially considering that I’m writing this article and categorizing it under the heading of “Politics!” But, before you dismiss me, may I ask you a few questions?

Do you like politics? If so, why do you like it?

Those who actually like politics generally enjoy debate, and find the heat of argument stimulating.

On the other hand, most people I know despise politics, or at the very least, find politics to be a rather uncomfortable subject. Have you ever thought about why that is?

Politics is the art of government. It has everything to do with ruling people. Even in the form of government known as “democracy,” practiced in much of the world today, politics is in its very essence one group of people (the “majority”) forcing and imposing their will upon another group of people (the “minority”).

In our heart of hearts, every one of us finds it repugnant to have our choices and our actions dictated to us by force. Jesus, arguably the greatest man who ever lived, said that to “love your neighbor as yourself” is the second greatest commandment (Matthew 22:39)

Every great teacher that has ever lived has told us that we should treat others the way we wish to be treated, and our own consciences tell us the same. Why then would we want to ever have any part in a system that forces our neighbor to do things at the point of a gun?

Politics is obsolete! Examine your own heart and conscience, and see if that isn’t so? And when you finally come to that conclusion, why not act on it? Abandon your support of political action. Support voluntary cooperation and organization! Stop abusing your neighbor through the proxy of government, and start treating your neighbor like you want to be treated.
