These are totally unrelated areas of study in philosophy yet they are somewhat similar due to their aim, the study of force. Politics is the study of how political force in relation to the general public and Legal Law is the study of how to best laws can be used to achieve social and political aims. The two are often mixed and used in conjunction with each other because of this simple truth.Continue Reading
During the time of Martin Luther King Jr., we can recall how rowdy most of us were as far as colored presidents were concerned. King was certainly disliked and even lead to his assassination in April 4, 1968. He was standing at the second floor balcony of the Lorraine Motel when he was shot.
It is no secret that majority of the people back then had a thing for the blacks. But today, we find ourselves on the verge of having another black President in the person of Barrack Obama.
But unlike before, we do not see rowdy people cursing and threatening Obama. That is excluding John McCain, his opponent of course who has used advertising mediums to get some leverage as far as their race is concerned. Apparently we see that it is all for naught as Obama is still leading thus far and officially.
Anyway, with all the discriminations left in the past, we are in a new era where political philosophy seems to be entirely better. It is more about what the person can provide rather than what he looks like. It has been a philosophy that we normally believe in even in real life. So if a black president can lead us to better tomorrows then why not?
So as long as we are in the era of being more rational and livid, let us keep it that way. We need all the help we can get and it does not matter if you are black or white!
As far as the elections are concerned, it is not purely about making promises. It is about which philosophy that either McCain or Obama believe in to which people will surely believe as well. There are patterns. For sure, each political platform follows a specific agenda. There are exceptions though. Some of them may even focus on the issues at hand, the latest of which is that of the business debacle hitting and affecting the whole world to date.
It is easy to declare a business philosophy based on their promises. But the real problem lies on seeing it happen. Once placed into office, there is no guarantee that their claims will truly materialize. For one, politics is a matter of priorities meaning that not all claims and itineraries that were declared can push through.
You donâ€™t have to figure out who will win or who will stick by their word. Either way, these political aspirants cannot give you a 100% guarantee. It has been proven anywhere that not all political shenanigans are indeed done. Especially considering that business needs are one of the most delicate topics that no one dares touch at the moment, it remains that people just have to figure out how to go about it independently.
Sadly, politicians are not included in the mix. They can lead but leading in all factors needed to be addressed is something that has to be questioned.
Observe the two candidates today, John McCain and Barrack Obama, and you will find contradicting philosophies. In fact, you may be surprised at the fact that they do not agree at all on a lot of aspects such as global warming and the oil supply issue. If you were a voter, one of these two things would be important to you. So if you were in the position of McCain or Obama, which would you target?
Well before anything else, it also depends on what you believe in. Both have used them as part of their agenda whenever they come out and speak in front of the territories to where they are campaigning. In debates and their advertising mediums, you will find that they emphasize on these points, hoping that they will click and become heroes in the eyes of voters, if and when they win the elections.
The philosophy of one is different from another. A lot of factors such as cultural, social and technology factors come into play as far as concluding a philosophical summary of what things people would care about.
In politics, the philosophy of the overall leader will be closely monitored. For one, it will be a measure of his competency and how well he can drive a nation. These are pretty big shoes to fill and if you think about it, one minor error could lead to disaster as far as voter confidence is concerned.
In philosophy, do what you believe in and not what others want you to do for them. Doing so may put you in a position where you may eventually regret trying to be who you are not.
