Let's Define Politics First

We always talk about politics, discuss, debate, rebut about it. But di we really know what 'politics' is? 'Politics' is a noun but is ain't an object that we can see. Yes, it is an abstract noun.
An abstract noun is a type of noun that refers to something a person cannot physically interact with. -
Okay now let's move to the definition.
Acording to :-
Politics is a process by which groups of people make decisions. The term is generally applied to behavior within civil governments, but politics has been observed in all human group interactions, including corporate, academic and religious institutions. It consists of "social relations involving authority or power" and refers to the regulation of a political unit, and to the methods and tactics used to formulate and apply policy.
The word "Politics" comes from the Greek word Πολιτικά (politika) from politic (adj.), modeled on Aristotle's "affairs of state," the name of his book on governing and governments, which was rendered in English mid-15 century as Latinised "Polettiques." In Latin, this was "politicus" and in French "politique". Thus it became "politics" in Middle English.
According to :-
1 the activities associated with governing a country or area, and with the political relations between states. 2 a particular set of political beliefs or principles. 3 activities aimed at gaining power within an organization: office politics. 4 the principles relating to or inherent in a sphere or activity, especially when concerned with power and status: the politics of gender.
According to :-
#1 The fastest way to piss off anybody and make enemies. Yes, no offense.
#9 The cause of all the worlds problems and the solution to all the worlds problems. This is also true.
#22 1. The profession of lying.

2. Politics is often a touchy subject because often people having differing political views - sometimes radical views - however, this doesen't mean you should insult others views (as insane as they may be).

3. Politics is the process of making decisions for groups. Politics if often a word used when referring to governments. It is one of the main causes of death in the world.
So many ways of defining politics so should we get a clear view of it. Spend your time on internet researching this topic, put your Facebook aside first. Here, I give you the direct link to Politics on

Here, some story POLITICS OF MALAYSIA, gotten from Wiki :-
The politics of Malaysia takes place in the framework of a federal constitutional monarchy, in which the Yang di-Pertuan Agong is head of state and the Prime Minister of Malaysia is the head of government. Executive power is exercised by the federal government and the 13 state governments. Federal legislative power is vested in the federal parliament and the 13 state assemblies. The judiciary is independent of the executive and the legislature, though the executive maintains a certain level of influence in the appointment of judges to the courts.
The Constitution of Malaysia is codified and the system of government is based on the Westminster system.
Malaysia has a multi-party system since the first direct election of the Federal Legislative Council of Malaya in 1955 on a first-past-the-post basis. The ruling party since then has always been the Alliance Party (Malay: Parti Perikatan) coalition and subsequently from 1973 onwards, its successor the Barisan Nasional (National Front) coalition. The Barisan Nasional coalition currently consists of the United Malays National Organisation (UMNO), Malaysian Chinese Association (MCA), Malaysian Indian Congress (MIC) and 11 other political parties.
Although Malaysian politics has been relatively stable, critics allege that "the government, ruling party, and administration...are intertwined with few countervailing forces."
The Importance of Politics

From what I believe and what I learnt in Sejarah Tingkatan Tiga, politics is a basic organisation in a single country and it is very essential. When "kekosongan politik" was experienced in Tanah Melayu after the fall of the Japanese Army, Malayan Communist Party (PKM) and Malayan Peoples' Anti-Japanese Army (MPAJA) took this finest advantage to create authority to rule Tanah Melayu. The revealed from their hiding dens, wood, and caused persecutiom here and there. They caused loads of people die. They killed Malay and Chinese and also threatened all the residents of Tanah Melayu. Estimation tells that MPAJA had killed 2542 people.
So we see, when there is no politics, such this thing will happen in a country. I hope you get the idea.

So I think that's all for the introduction for politics.
Only 30% were copy-pasted.
