    Default Question

    Would someone please give me five philosophically legitimate (not only rationally tenable, but also persuasive) reasons for why I should not regard politics as a sorry business?

    If you like having power, then I suggest playing politics.
    But that doesn't make it any less of a sorry business.

    It's the sole determinant in how you are allowed to live your life.

    Only one needed.

    How your present state of mind may or may not favour that reality is no one's responsibility but your own.

    I do not see how this shows that politics deserve more respect than I otherwise would give them.

    Who cares who or what you respect?
    There is no such thing as separation from God.

    Even if you take no interest in politics, politics might take an interest in you.

    You severely overestimate my opinion of you.

    But doesnt the Fe care about what everybody thinks?

    And by the way 'greatly' would be a better word choice than severely in this case.
