What changed your political views?

Question from the Internet:

“What has caused your largest political view change?”

It was when I completely disconnected from anything political since I realized that politics, social or economic ideologies, systems, changes are simple, blind, and instinctive symptoms of our inherent human nature.

They are inevitable expressions of the inherently selfish, egoistic, exploitative, and individualistic human nature that creates ruthless competition, the thrive to control, rule over, exploit and destroy others. It is this nature that develops arbitrary, self-serving ideologies, philosophies, religions, and everything we do.

Thus it is absolutely pointless in engaging in politics, since as long as we blindly follow our instinctive nature we keep stumbling through the same vicious cycles, committing the same mistakes, crimes, helplessly plunging from one side to the other.

Only when we reluctantly, humbly recognize the root cause of the problems within us and start changing, correcting, upgrading ourselves — instead of preaching to, correcting, suppressing, changing others — then we will see true changes for the better.
