I have a confession to make; I spend unhealthy a lot of time on politics.
I read and research a lot. But what we see from the outside, the speeches and media interactions is not even 1% of the real story.
When I sum the time spend on researching and the amount of interactions and changes I made, I am in a big minus.
Sure, I manage to change and contribute to some things, but the general direction was unchanged.
As a citizen, I can sum it up that politics is only profitable for politicians and for the rest is a waste of their time.
