The Political Primer
Fundamentals of Politics
The kind of society you want to live in depends upon what you politically believe. Each political party has embraced a Worldview of how society should be structured and how people should interact. Each party is striving to create a world structured by their Worldview. The goal of politics is to place individuals in positions of control over society who will create or preserve that structure. That is the same goal as war - to place people in charge of society who will create a structure for society that will result in the establishment of the kind of society the victors want to live in. For some people how they live is worth fighting for. For many, how they live is worth dying for. Politics is war! You are the foot soldier.
So what do you believe? The Political Primer will help you to determine what it is you politically believe and which Worldview you already embrace. You will soon realize politics is not about what other people think or what other people believe. Politics is about what you think and what you believe.
Here are three of the facts that politicians and elected officials do not want you to know: 1. Politics is not complicated. 2. Only four basic political philosophies exist. 3. Politics is entirely about you!
Fundamental political concepts introduced in Part One are used to develop four political philosophies. There are only four! Part Two uses both trivial and controversial issues to illustrate the application of the political concepts of Part One. Part Three will illustrate the power of the political concepts presented and will further clarify how politics is utilized to change the structure of society. The Epilog is both a commentary and a test. The test is not to determine whether you agree or disagree with the Author’s commentary. The test is to determine for yourself whether you now understand why you agree or disagree. The Political Primer will have accomplished its goal if you know why. You will have become politically astute.
There are four possible future worlds. Which one do you want to build?
