Politics discounts and excludes human beings, at least the sort of politics we have today does. Studying politics therefore causes me to lose my own humanity and self as I analyze these political realities. I can only approach politics for a while then must abandon it for the earth again.

Politics is therefore properly "Platonic" and metaphysical, an attempt at a pure logical order "above" the earth... logically birthing Marx from that madness. From now on I will only vote for earthy politicians, non-politicians, to help balance the scales.

I have always managed to stay outside of it when I studied or discussed politics. The mentality of politics should never enter my life.
