Welcome to Political Awareness
We are a Political Non Partisan forum, We don’t support or oppose any political candidates & parties, We bring together conservatives, progressives, & everyone in between. 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 as the past couple of years has proven.
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. Please Join the discussion and the community.
Climate change is one of the most imminent threats to our existence, and its policy is currently gaining momentum. Youth activism, international treaties and world leaders have, in the past decade, engaged increasingly on environmental issues. With the termination of the Millennium Development Goals, the implementation of the Sustainable Development Goals, and the ground-breaking historic moment of the Paris Agreement, society has remarkably started to pay attention.
The momentum for climate policy is three-fold: on politics, on finance, and on justice.
It is worth noting that climate and environmental policy in U.S. politics has had its ups-and-downs. To contextualise, the Environmental Protection Agency was founded by ex-president Richard Nixon. He also pushed for the implementation of the Clean Air Act and the Clean Water Act. The bipartisan nature of environmental policy was not always an issue as much as we see it today. However, climate change is gaining momentum in the U.S. policy platform. In 2014, a poll by Pew Research Center showed that Climate Change was at the bottom list of priorities for Americans. However, as discussed recently in Vox and The Atlantic, climate change now ranks top two in priorities among Democrats behind healthcare. In addition, it is worth remembering that in 2017, while 86% of Democrats wanted to remain in the Paris Agreement, 51% of Republicans also wanted so. Thus, despite the polarization in the recent decades, a growing consensus of the need for climate policy in the U.S. is now more important than ever.
Indeed, as stated in The Economist, “Neither the virus nor greenhouse gases care much for borders”. The pandemic has shown us how climate change and public health interact with each other, and both Democrats and Republicans are pushing for their own agenda on climate policy. Despite its polarization, climate is a policy that neither party is denying, but rather actively engaging in. For example, in April, global greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) were down by 8% compared to 2019, being the “largest annual drop since the Second World War”.
What is more, the renewable energy sector has never been so cost-effective, and its momentum is unlikely to go away. As renewable energies drop to a record low on prices, particularly regarding installation, other sources of energy such as coal can sometimes even be more expensive. Additionally, environment and climate-related issues evidenced to have impacted disadvantaged communities and low-income households in the U.S. disproportionately. Climate intersects undoubtedly with public health, the economy, the labour market, foreign policy, and beyond.
We at Political Awareness LLC understand the momentum. Aware of how much climate change affects all of us, and guided by our sense of purpose to inform, we have dedicated a separate section on climate change. As climate-related issues rise in the polls, it has become a top priority in the U.S. and globally, to vote for candidates with a climate agenda. This section will outline some key points of climate policy.
