Politics refers to how people make decisions to apply members to their group and understand how to allocate power; political science is a study of framing the past and predicting the future by creating a hypothesis based on what people have historically done. Being political means to have impact on a certain outcome without participating in activities such as voting. Thus, despite the fact that an individual is ignorant and uninterested in politics, they may still be considered as political. The state of being political applies to diverse factors of human affairs, including conflicts, actions, institutions, branches of science etc.
According to the three tests I took, I am more of a libertarian than authoritarian; I am more of a totalitarian than libertarian. The results imply that as a part of a certain country, I seek for political freedom and freedom of choice, while I also seek for interventions from the government and some prohibition from the opposing parties to a certain extent. Furthermore, I am a person that seeks for approximately 40% of personal freedom and approximately 35% of economic freedom, which leads me slightly towards the left wing (liberal). Hence, I am a supporter of “maximum government, maximum freedom,” while I also pursue a small amount of necessary prohibition and constraint from the government over the country, which may reduce conflicts.
The political issue I consider as most important right now is distributing vaccines for COVID-19. Since the pandemic is currently lasting for approximately one year, there should be an effective method and solution to deal with the global problem and make sure the pandemic ends as soon as possible. Thus, vaccines are significant to all the countries where confirmed people constantly increases. In order to effectively distribute vaccines, the relationship between countries, and the relationship the citizens and the government is highly important. For instance, the government could decide on how much the patients should pay for their treatment (free or need to pay money) and how many people they can afford vaccines to. In this case, the freedom and rights of the citizens to receive proper treatment, along with some government intervention is necessary.
Overall, being aware of what is going on in politics is significant for an individual to live within a country despite some ignorance and lack of information. As a knower, individuals should be able to have knowledge and interest towards political issues in order to express their opinions and thoughts on the political conditions of a nation and how it should be improved.
