This strikes me... The totalitarian regimes always tried to persuade
people that "...politics is not what you need. Don't talk or think about
politics and you will be OK". This works in China. Looks like it works
in the US too.
Politics is an integral part of our lives. You may be more or less
effected by it, but you ARE effected. Next time somebody will tell you
that clarinet pieces written by Iraqi composers are politically
incorrect and you will turn around and say OK???

Fortunately for the human species, "politics" isn't the only thing that=20
represents what is "real." (And a lot of what is "politics" isn't=20
really "real" anyway.) ;-)
