We are trying to accomplish something no one has been able to accomplish yet, voter awareness of Political issues. This does seem an impossible task right now but going into such a critical election year we thought this was key.
Politics have always been the largest driving force in the world. Those in charge dictate what happens, who it happens to and what will happen to everyone else. It is the very core of where the world stands today and where it may end up tomorrow. Politics affect everyone, whether they’d like to believe it or not. And yet, there seems to be a troubling pattern among people claiming to be “non-political,” an entirely implausible notion in this day and age. It shapes our world and daily activities, freedoms and privileges. We are trying to provide a spot before you vote to understand what your voting for, a force for truth a force for what the political industry has needed for years transparency.
Political Awareness Definition:
Political awareness is about understanding the ‘currents’, or hidden agendas, in an organisation, and particularly the power relationships.
Many people may have been put off the idea of being politically aware by seeing people ‘playing politics’ or trying to manipulate others using political tactics. But if used wisely, political awareness is a force for good in society, and for making and understanding the candidates and what issues they stand for and we believe it is an essential skill in life. Political awareness means the extent to which an individual pays attention to politics and understands what he or she has encountered. To elaborate, awareness reflects intellectual or cognitive engagement with public affairs.
Political awareness operates in the political information exchange between the individual and various sources of political messages communicated in the public space. It is commonly understood as an important asset, which determines people’s engagement with politics and how political awareness might be a key asset, which determines participation and active citizenship. There are questions of the role of political values; standards which makes people prefer certain policies, persons outcomes or ideologies, equality, freedom, respect, tolerance, the role of emotions that shape the way we look at thing and how we perceive candidates and laws.
Here are five reasons we think you should be politically aware:
1. It Affects You and Everyone Around You
2. Political Debates Help You Navigate Your Own Values and Beliefs
3. It’s One Step Closer to Being Less Ignorant
4. It Perpetuates the Myth That Young People Don’t Care
5. You’re Missing Out on History As It Happens
We are here are trying to bring awareness to the issues that could effect each and everyone of us every day, change history or the direction of governments across the world and bring massive change that by definition doesn’t serve the better good. Saying you “aren’t political” isn’t an answer, its only in all our best interest to be aware of what and who we vote for.
