Politics

The term “politics” refers to governance of a country and governments, and it encompasses the views, orientations, activities, behaviors, relationships and communication methods relating to these. A main theme in politics is social (or ethnic) groupings along with the political institutions, leaders, movements and organizations associated with these. Politics serves the purpose of guiding the development of public matters along a positive pathway by identifying key objectives and finding ways to achieve these.The field of politics is a combination of art and science. It has been considered a science ever since man developed laws and frameworks to develop society, and these have always influenced the direction of politics. It is also correct to view politics as a form of art since it deals with the subjective elements of the various political processes. Generally, it requires those involved to use intuition, experience, imagination, courage, and a degree of creativity.

Politics plays a pivotal role in modern-day society, and its structure are both multi-dimensional and complex. The various social groupings are the main driver in politics i.e. communities, classes, foundations, the individual parties involved, international bodies, types of government, and the like. These structures operate in a free and independent manner. All the component organizations deal with specific types of information and they do not perform the same functions.

It is only possible to achieve peace once justice prevails everywhere. This is an ideal that is virtually impossible to achieve on our Earth. Despite this, however, the objective and on-going goal of the political process is to strive towards peace and to ensure that all peoples can live in an environment of freedom and peace. Every single political regime or system and each body of power is temporary and never perfect. Generally speaking, efforts to create the perfect society are prone to failure and put limitations on power.
