I do not deny presence of politics in life, in all aspects, not limited to Nation government to workplace, including family. Politics is part of life. Accept it. Even our Gods had to play it.
Human minds and related psychology is so complex and varied on different level of intellect that friction is inevitable. Politics is non-violent friction on mental plane.
Only caveat is: Politics should be selfless. Not for self but for stability of the tribe.
The Moment when politics become selfish for own selfish motive, it invites collapse. Total destruction. Like how Duryodhana collapsed.
If you are playing petty politics, beware. 🙂 You are unknowingly inviting self-destruction. 🙂
