The methodology for the formation of government and the organizing of mankind is generally known as politics, in a sense that it should be fair, honest and transparent enough to be relied on by the general public.
Politics, or political systems for that matter, has become an integral part of everyday life; people in democratic countries view it as an opportunity of selecting people to govern the state for a specified term based on their preferences. Human life viewed from the corridors of broad logic and the prism of intellect reveals to us something extraordinarily vital about how it moves on and what affects it the most.
Principle perspectives defining human existence tell us that there are three elements that can be regarded as there epitome for survival: namely religious, social and economic, all bonded directly or indirectly through politics, impacting human life.
The extent of the government’s power is naturally limited to economic and social matters among others, because democratic countries rely on pillars of secularism to erect the structure of a neutral state. Politics acts as primary parameter for people to make judgments on how society should be formed, expressed through voting and secondly because the preferences of people helps the government to satisfy the desire of individuals by bringing in new laws and principles in accordance to people’s preferences.
But contrary to its reputation, politics acts as a servant of society by revolving around the corner of human life. In simple terms, it is a system that depends on how people feel, being expressed through voting. This is because indirectly the whole of the political system is responsible for leading the society towards certain goals. For example, in the case of less-developed nations, the ultimate focus of the system will be on how to enhance the system of social justice, economic opportunities and social dignity for individuals.
In democratic countries, society acts as a center of the universe and politics just orbits around it; survival of an entire polity in a great degree is reciprocal of survival and the enrichment of society. In case of a multiparty democracy, the primary goal of all parties will always be achieving targets envisioned for making a country prosperous, but routes they follow may differ.
But in case of theocratic governance systems, the whole establishment of governance is based on scripture or philosophy, so there arises a question of political in-fighting for supremacy.
Politics minus dirty vote-maximizing and winning tricks can lead to a path of peace and consistent prosperity, but the onus of cleaning the dirt is with the public.
Thankfully, its development of political philosophy over the years served us with the different forms of governments and establishments of societies, ultimately leading towards an augmented governing system.
