Politics involves ideas, events, and people

Politics involves ideas, events, and people. By the Z- Man.

Small-minded people focus on the people, while average minded people focus on events.

The higher minded will talk about ideas, but at the top, all three are part of the political discussion.

The cable chat shows are not going to spend time discussion theory, for example. Instead they cover the events of the day and the people involved in those events. …

One sign that dissident politics is beginning to grow up is the appearance of books and articles looking at events and ideas from outside the system. Chris Caldwell’s recent book, for example, is a serious treatment of the forces unleashed by the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960’s.

Caldwell’s important new ideas were covered on the Wentworth Report here.
