I’ve seen comments online from people saying that they wish their friends and family would stop posting about politics. One person even said that rendering your opinion re: political issues is a display of hubris and arrogance, that that should be left to the politicians. Politics is life! All of our lives are deeply affected by who governs, their competency, their humanity or lack thereof. Democracy is dependent on the involvement of its citizens and I have little respect for people who refuse to get involved or who try to shut me and everyone else up. There’s just no denying that we live in a political world.
