I learned two things in school today:
My writing composition teacher who works as an editor for a news paper told me that when journalists write and politicians talk they always speak with the tone that what they are saying is true.
They can't say "appears" "assume" "seems" "maybe" "we guess" "we believe" "we hope".
It is against the rules
At the same time I'm in political behaviors class which concerns research, which says that when it comes to politics there is no actual total concrete truth.
Therefore when a politician or journalist speaks in total this is fact sentences they are always being slightly dishonest.
It made me think of blogs and and youtube:
People are always like, "seems" "appears" etc on those outlets.
I like that:
I think that is why people like blogs and youtube political commentary because the people on it aren't running around like jesus.
The meaning of the word "government"
My politics books gives this definition: The set of individuals and political institutions that has, or makes the claim to have, the de jure authority to make the rules that resolve conflict.
This definition is fucked up to me
I thought the job of government was to be an institution of administration that is concerned with things that involve the public. It provides products that are not individual in nature and require more money to produce than a single company can provide.
Like roads, schools, jails, fire stations, sewage systems, etc.
What I mean by 'individual' is: like socks and shoes can be unique and individual. But a fire station we hope all do the same job, of putting out the fire.
I don't understand this conflict thing at all:
There have been many periods in history where cultures and geographical areas had governments and no conflict for over a hundred years.
