Therefore it is consciousness which makes the very difference between us and other animals.

It is justified when we act on verbally or in some form of expresseion with others, one has to be political. There are very few persons that have the courage to speak boldly especially in a stupid mannar.

The older I get the less political I'm becoming. There's too much good stuff to enjoy.

I think Ari got the animal part right, but I'm with Joseph regarding politics. On days when I eat my veggies at set times, issues look black and white. But when I wear colored undies, and graze between meals, life becomes a Monet painting (real colorful/kind of blurry), which is how today's politics are...soooo, I guess I agree with the man with the stone head.

I am, by nature, a political animal. However, it seems that I tend to believe that John Kenneth Galbraith was correct when he said that "politics consists of choosing between the disastrous and the unpalatable."

olitics is a process by which groups of people make collective decisions. We seek to belong and there for not able to decide for ourselves what is. We therefore seek advice from so called authority figures to decide for us. Making us political animals because our survival is dependent on it. So we think.
