This is an old question, but we have new answers.
People hate politics, because it involves much of the dark side of human nature. But if we see from the newer aspect of politics, we will find it useful and not so dark as the traditional way.
Politics is to organize power. That power should be the power of the people, of every one.
That means, human is useful. We can do something, as we have power.
Nations should be united, so as to do a better job for the world.
This is the positive aspect about politics.
A new era had come.
The powers of the United States, Russia, and China should be united. A new concept of ARC is ready now. The three great nations here could bring real progress to the whole world.
