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.

 

___________
"We must, now armed with such a language, realize the “transcendental unity of ideas,” through a new morality that aims, not to hypostasize experience and grasp in positive knowledge a series of particular virtues and vices, but rather to fully explicate this continuity; where philosophy exists to represent this transcendental order, morality most exist to mediate the two spheres, the spheres of experience and ideality." --Parodites

"Between this sky and the faces turned toward it there is nothing on which to hang a mythology, a literature, an ethic, or a religion—only stones, flesh, stars, and those truths the hand can touch." --Camus

"It is a tedious thing to be always beginning life; they live badly who always begin to live." --Seneca

"I kick ass, all these other humans suck balls." --Inmendham

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