Politics Level 1: Rise to Power
In this course we will explore Political Science and consider how we can become powerful by applying its principles. With Political Science we can become powerful as individuals, as groups, as countries and finally as a human society. Understanding politics better will enable you to sound more intelligent talking about the subject, make more intelligent decisions about choosing which leaders to follow choices and rise to power yourself if you so desire. I observe that some people don't like politicians so much and may even consider them evil. If you are such a person then I encourage you to check out this course and consider the ideas presented. Watching a few videos is probably not enough to become powerful, but if you study this course seriously and apply the principles presented in your daily life then I have no doubt in my mind that you will become more powerful. I hope you will ! Political science is a social science which deals with systems of governance, and the analysis of political activities, political thoughts and political behavior. It deals extensively with the theory and practice of politics which is commonly thought of as determining of the distribution of power and resources. Political scientists see themselves engaged in revealing the relationships underlying political events and conditions, and from these revelations they attempt to construct general principles about the way the world of politics works.
