A diode morbidly related to Politics is Pollytics, maybe you should look there Politics is the process of men in grey suits arguing over the introduction/abolition of laws and policies that 99.6% of the general population will never take interest in, understand or even care about, whilst the rest of the world is slowly destroyed by bacteria. Very slowly.
Politicians, renowned exponents of politics, are in fact a form of superbacteria that suck the life from any conversation, party or room they walk into. Upon touching one, you instantly turn to stone, or at the very least a depressed husk of your former self. You maMy only return to normal by partaking of political satire, which, although haughty and often religiously charged, will cleanse you of the deadly seriousness that politics has inflicted upon you.
The term politics is a derivative of the verb poletic, the process of endlessly droning on about subjects that interest only you or deliberately dodging questions that may have underlying meaning.
