Today I was told that politics is everywhere. Not pointing out the obvious that it is politics that controls why we drive on a certain side of the road, but apparently coming to an agreement which film to see is also politics.
To be honest, I find that to taking the idea a bit too far and highlights why you see far too much politics in the Australian media. Politics are important and they are newsworthy, however not everything is politics.
You could make the same exagurated claim regarding health. That everything we do has something to do with health.
Discussing with your friends what film you should can be linked to several health aspects. Being social, talking and watching a film can be linked to mental health. How you travel from home to the cinemal can probably be linked to physical health.
In other words, making such a broad and exagurated claim like that will make any semantic nitpicker and grammar nazi to wake up and start maoning about it – like I just did right now.
I might sound a bit harsh, but this is what they teach at university, to be critical and analyse – especially if you find it too good to be true. Unfortunately the same professors who tell us to be sceptical often are so sure of themselves the too often make rash statements like I’ve mentioned.
If you have studied politics you will know that it plays a huge part of society, but not everything and it’s only relevant when you talk about politics.
