August 11, 2017 (SSB) — Politics has become chronic to the extent everything is regarded on the side of politics, for instance, you cannot give someone something for free for brotherhood sake but instead of giving thanks rather he analyzes it by questioning, why is he giving me this? Is he not after something? What does he want from me then? Is he vying for any position?

Others take it further you can see someone doing something that is not right or does not know what to do or need support to do something but refuses to voluntarily give a hand and take it as the political strategy to take advantage of his loopholes.

Others are even overwhelmed by political fear and neglect social norm e.g in social norm when you see someone is arguing for something which is not right, you boldly tell him, my friend, what you are saying is not right, unlike nowadays you refuse to tell him so because you may hurt your political maneuver.

In social norm When you find someone else child even if he/she is not related to you , you assume yourself in the absence of parents to correct and offer free advice if you find him/her doing wrong things even to the extent of caning him/her if he/she is defying your advice.

Therefore all these voluntary corrective measures which ensure the good spirit of brotherhood and cohesive coexistent are taken nowadays as your Brother mistake is your opportunity.

Others refuse to say the truth, you don’t know a person until you understand what he is not saying to you. Some people don’t tell you the truth about themselves because they hold themselves for political safety unless you discover by yourself, this is when you come to know the person hidden traits.

People want the truth to hide but sooner or later it will still reveal itself, e.g someone took me wrong and giggle when I told him I lost my mom.

I was amazed what was wrong with it since he initially inquired about my parent or did he expect me to say she was alive. I think that is why media is being hated by people who want the truth to hide. As God said the truth shall set you free.

Despising advice, others close their ears to listen to others because of political doubt, doubting may be they are playing tactics with me.

We need to change our mindset about politics and separate it with conventional ways of living where people were honest, considerate and compassionate and people were more welcome to be corrected where they went wrong.

We need to reduce love for politics for the benefit of the better relationship among ourselves.
