Years ago I was a keen to spark a revolution in my country. Several years and nervous brakedowns later, with no job and money I discovered the "hidden" truth:D
...politicians lack in many fundamental empathic aspects in order to function in politics – the job is nothing else but God-like trading with fundamental values of our society.
If you consider politics, you should learn from my mistake. I learned it the hard way. Lost my nerves, time and money believing that the system can be “hacked” or changed for the better from inside. No, it can not. One can only be assimilated and there is no way redeeming your soul back once that is done.
