First of all I know I’m treading dangerous ground by even mentioning politics because it can quickly become a vile and toxic debate. This thread isn’t intended to decide which side is right or wrong or to push a certain agenda. I’m merely asking why people even care about politics or question the importance of caring for it.
Over the past few years I’ve seriously started to question why people care so much about politics and why it really effects there mental health so much. I am 30 years old so maybe it’s just because I’m younger, but I seriously can’t seem to care too much about it. Last time I voted was in 08 and it didn’t effect me one bit who won or lost. It honestly seems like we as individuals have very little say or effect on what happens anyway either way what with electoral colleges and stuff in Congress and so on. And even though I do get bothered by some things, I feel I’m actually a lot more mentally happy for simply not caring. I dont watch the news or anything, if anything is truly important I’ll hear about it from someone else I real life and make a judgement then after I research on the internet.
I’m not saying my way of doing things is the right way, but I just would really like to know what people get out of stressing over this stuff? Most of us have enough every day things to worry about day to day and I dont feel politics and things we don’t have control over should be one of those worry’s personally.
Again please keep comments civil. Thank you.
