Culture And Politics
Andrew Breitbart, a USA writer, believed that politics is downstream from culture. This means that all the good and the bad you see in politics is a reflection of the culture at large. I think it is vital that a mature recognition of human nature happens when analysing what is both right and wrong in any culture. Tulsi Gabbard, an upcoming USA presidential candidate, discussed a wide variety of important issues on the Joe Rogan podcast recently. This included very sensitive topics like the dangers of USA military interventions, warnings regarding the influence of the USA military-industrial complex, issues concerning the power of some USA technology corporations, the situation around USA government surveillance whistleblowers (Julian Assange, Edward Snowden, and Chelsea Manning were mentioned), ethics relating to USA political funding, and poor working conditions in the USA.
