Politics, by definition, is to be shrewd or prudent in practical matters; tactful; diplomatic. A simple definition, yet not really known, or understood, by the average person.

It’s time to transform the landscape of understanding for both Gen X’rs and Millennials. We have to learn to become independent thinkers when it comes to politics the same way that we have in our careers. Instead we’ve let the media, also known as the story teller, rob us of the joy that we felt when electing our current president. Long gone is the village griot who had our best interest at heart and in walks the beast called modern day media. Everyone has an agenda.

“The story teller is the most powerful person in the world. We base our lives on what the story teller says whether it be print, radio, or television. My mother taught me as a young man to be careful who you listen to and to what they are saying. The story teller is clever and masterful and has already decided exactly what he or she wants you to think and believe. The story teller has the power to make one feel good or bad, appear strong or weak, confident or defeated.”

I nominate the introduction of a new education based movement in this country called Politicking 101. It’s time to educate ourselves. This is a plausible platform to play your role alongside thousands of others so that we can reignite the fire that blazed a trail in 2008. Get out there and attend the next city council meeting or find out what’s on the agenda for the next general session at your state capital. What a failure we are as a generation if we have no substance to support all of the hard work that we put into bringing this historical achievement to life. November 2010 will be the next major milestone in this never ending saga. It’s really time for us to re-evolve into a culture of substance. Making small practical changes today will help us start trending towards greater change in the coming years. The idea here is not to paint a picture of despair but to begin creating a path to empowerment. Looking for Change? Create It.

People don’t make bad decisions on purpose. Bad decisions are made from bad information or lack of information.
