#9 / Everything

Sometimes, just a quote seems quite sufficient. Here's Martha Gellhorn, from the "Sunbeams" section of the January 2018, edition of The Sun magazine: 

Politics is the business of governing, and nobody can escape being governed, for better or worse. In the few fortunate societies where voting is free and honest, most people take the weird view that politics is a horse race - you bet on a winner or loser every so often, if you can bestir yourself; but politics is not a personal concern. Politics is everything - from clean drinking water through the preservation of forests, whales....to nuclear weapons and the disposal thereof. If we mean to keep any control over our world and lives, we must be interested in politics.
