1.What does it mean to be political?
According to the Oxford dictionary, “political” is defined as “relating to the ideas or strategies of a particular party or group in politics.” In my definition, “political” means that you always think and make a decision to a certain occasion based on your stands.
2.Do you consider yourself to be “political”? Why or why not?
I do not consider myself as a political because I always have different visions and stands to a certain occasion depending on the situation. One day, I think in the way similar as conservative people do. The other day, I think in the way similar as liberal people do. As shown in the above, I am neither liberal nor conservative. Since I my political stand always change, I do not consider myself to be political.
3. Is everything political? Why or why not?
I do not think everything is political, but it can be in some areas. In the fields of mathematics and science, where there are obvious answer and facts, it cannot be political because it cannot contain any personal visions or opinions. However, in the fields of arts including music, dance, and literature, if you did express your conservative or liberal stands to your artworks, the artworks becomes political.
4. How important do you feel it is to be aware what is going on in politics?
I do think that it is very important to be aware of political occasions. However, I am a bit ignorant to politics because I am not interested in knowing any domestic and global issues. As shown in my results on bias test, I have biased visions because I am highly affected by data manipulation. As a citizen who is living in the society, I think I need to have a certain amount of knowledge that are not biased because it allows you to make appropriate decisions in your life.
5. What are the political issues that you believe are most important right now and why?
Since I am very far away from politics, I really do not know what is exactly happening on the politics and what is important right now. Within my knowledge, during the period of COVID 19, the Korean government is blamed by people by its ineffective and tardy response or measurement on it. Since we have a president election next year, the president and his party and the other party are cautious about people’s reactions on the current government.
