Politics for Politics' Sake

Posted: 12.01.08 in Blogging

Everyone is excited about these American elections. I find that a little odd. A country over the pond is deciding on who is going to be the next ruler of the world. I’m not that bothered really.

Who really cares about whether Barack Obama is leading the candidacy race? Who cares really over the Hillary Clinton campaign? Or even all those seemingly countless other candidates that want to be the next president of the United States — should we be that bothered about it?

Yes, it might be important for international relations. Yes, it might influence much of what goes on between various countries of the world. But should we take any more notice of international politics than we do in local politics? It seems a little peculiar that we should gawp at celebrities being lined up for the White House over which we have no control when so many of us — it seems — moan about everything that affects us. It’s a shame.

Lesson of the Day

Even if you can’t change the world, you can still make a difference.
