If you look around, you look at our human history and you look at our current political system, it is clear that there are flaws. The problem with politics is that they have lost their purpose, they as in the politicians. If Plato were alive today he would say about our society that our “Ruler’s” are not philosophers of anything but their own celebrity. Our “Protectors” are not even being protected from the after effect of what they went to war to protect us from, if that’s what it was and not revenge. And our “Workers” are eating pig **** and getting fat from it.

So what is the purpose of politics? As much as our political system would like you to believe that it’s about arguing (which gets high television ratings), argument was not the founding principal of a strong political system. However, it is not far from the goal of any stable political system, ratings are however, the goal of our democracy. The truth is that democracy would be much better ran with only 10% of the average voting rate in a developed country if that 10% was well-educated, came from all walks of life, and actually held political views that they could substantiate.

Having an educated populace that is able to construct a political debate without resorting to inflated positioning, argument, and partying eliminates the need for argument in political discourse. The problem with politics is politicians are stupid. The purpose of politics is to consider every option, not fight over what group of politicians is more right more of the time. One’s ideology is not meant to be a blueprint for future decision making. Our political culture has created just that, political ideologies that compartmentalize issues into demographics which can be manipulated.

Scroll up, I already said how it could look.

@JLO1988,
If we gather enough politicians together, the energy created by their bloviations could power a small city.

@neologist,
Word of the day Bloviations -
verb (used without object), blo·vi·at·ed, blo·vi·at·ing.
to speak pompously.

bloviate
1857, Amer.Eng., a Midwestern word for "to talk aimlessly and boastingly; to indulge in 'high falutin'," according to Farmer (1890), who seems to have been the only British lexicographer to notice it. He says it was based on blow (v.) on the model of deviate, etc. It seems
