Politics is a Game!!


For everyone who still thinks and believes that his/her political party is THE ONE which is fighting for what is RIGHT and GOOD, I have two descriptions for you: NAIVE or BLIND!!


Politics is a GAME, and not any game, it's one the dirtiest games ever to exist on earth!! In politics it's never about what is good or what is right for the country or the people, it's always about what's good and what's best for the party, the party members, or mostly for the party leaders!!


Parties try to control and influence every aspect of our lives as much as possible, with whatever cost, as long as it keeps them in power. They interfere in the financial sector, social matters, laws and regulations across the board, taxes, health care services, even religion!!! Yes, RELIGION!!


You see, through out history, even before Islam and Christianity and Judaism, religion was always, and will always be controlled by the strong politicians. Kings controlled religion, even modified it, to suite their interests!! Rulers fought over power, with wars and assassinations and divisions, all in the sake of controlling empires... At some point, religious leaders, influenced by politics, had citizens fight in the name of God to capture territories, and rewarded soldiers with deeds in heaven!! It was all to serve the politics, not GOD!! And the examples never stop till today...

Now here is the trick: It is OK to be a member of a party and join their dirty political game. This is becoming part of our social life, part of our democratic life!! What is not acceptable to think that you are actually in the RIGHT or IDEAL party, and that everyone else in ten other parties is wrong!! They are actually doing exactly what you are doing. Each member is defending their own party, in this huge dirty game. As long as you admit this and is aware of this, you are being realistic and open.


The issue here is where this line between promoting and defending your party, and attacking and destroying the other, where this line stops!! It is a very blurry line unfortunately!!


Some use wars, crime, killings and assassinations... Some use money and bribery... Some use prostitution and sexual seduction and scandals!! Some use religion and traditions to command you and control you!! And so many other ways that we can't even detect or account for...


All those secrets, scandals, spy files, assassinations, conspiracy theories, they would amaze you with the amount of deception and lies and crimes that underlying a lot of those big democracies as well dictatorships. And we are all part of it, we vote for those people, we work for those people, we obey and listen to those people... And that makes us part of whatever dirty game is going on....


And the interesting part is that no matter how good or bad a person is, once they get into politics, they are transformed gradually into beasts, serving their interests and their party and their leaders... They are brainwashed, controlled, lied on, but they choose to believe the lies, until another party does a better job in brainwashing them... It's part of the game...


In addition, there is one important thing to know here: Politicians are Excellent Speakers and Slick Liars... They utilize these skills to control the masses, to make you believe what they want you to believe, to make you act based on their strategy, to make you defend them blindly, sometimes costing lives and blood and destruction!! And if they ever lose any of these two skills, you know that their political career is coming to an end...


There are no friends in politics, rather there are alliances, partnerships which benefit all parties involved. Once those benefits stop, or if your goal changes and contradicts with those partners, the alliance comes to an end. Your partners and allies can suddenly become your enemies. And the other way is valid too. You can be in a long harsh battle with an opponent, till the moment when there are circumstances or conditions that dictate a necessary alliance between those enemies. And hence, in the sake of political gain, your enemy can become your partner!! 


There is no absolute GOOD in politics, there is the good for the party, for its members and leaders. Any initiative which is bad for the country, the people, or other parties, can be GOOD to a party if it serves its needs and benefits!! And this same initiative, if circumstances change, it can become bad, and politicians can masterfully explain why they reconsidered their position, without losing grounds. That's a skill of smart politicians!!


You, as a member of any specific party, you are willingly joining that party in its dirty game... You are accepting the lies, you are accepting to be brainwashed and controlled by that party!!


And so, for everyone out there, please note that you are NO BETTER than anyone else who opposes your views or politics. You simply lie on different sides of the dirty game, each playing for their own team, using different strategies and techniques than your opponents!! At the same time, when choosing a party to defend and join, please check which one suits you more than others, don't waste your time looking for the ideal or the clean or the open party. Those descriptions do not exist in politics, PERIOD. Don't even try convincing others or arguing about this point!!


Finally, learn about politics, learn the techniques, learn how to analyze and campaign and calculate gains and losses in politics. Educate yourself. Don't be a blind follower. Socialize and talk about politics with an open mind. Try to explore and learn about your party as well as about others. Be open to change, switching, and evolution... We are all part of politics, we have to be, more or less... So let's do it in the best possible way, and history will judge us...


Good luck to all of you in your dirty games...


Game on...
