Tucker: what’s evil about politics

"You know what’s evil about politics? It turns people into enemies when they should and would naturally be friends in a normal society. In the marketplace you are happy to cooperate with anyone to mutual betterment. But in politics it’s all about hating your neighbor. If a person who believes all of civilization rests on a Romney win would naturally and rightly regard all Obama voters as mortals threats, wreckers of the good life itself. And the demographics of voting are rather predictable. You can often tell quickly how a person will or will not vote by appearance alone. That creates prejudice, bias, and hate. So politics creates these stupid battles between people — for absolutely no reason — and wars against the brotherhood of man. It creates the divisions it pretends to heal." - Jeffrey Tucker
