    Emotions and politics actually go hand and hand.
    Politics is about power, control, and will.

    Emotions are one of the common tools to stir up the masses in order to move them to act.

    In addition to emotions and politics, there is also interests.
    What interests do the political power holders have that they wish to protect, promote, or further?
    What benefits or advantages are being sought by the political power holders of a polity?

    I don't think Bull Connor, , Vito Genovese, Papa Doc Duvalier or Dick Cheney could have said t any better.
    Exactly!!!! In Fascism politics is about Power Control and Will

    Marimba Ani calls this the value system of Yurugu!

    A student of Kemetic philosphy called Plato spoke of philospher kings,
    aconcept not just relegated to the north of the Nile but to most of Africa

    Politics under such a system was a system of maintaining cultural values
    of justice, equa distribution of wealth the eduction of children, and the care of the elderly

    The COINTELPRO attack on Afrocentricity and the political framewrk
    of theNguzo Saba, left a vacuum tht was first filled with drugs and dsco,
    and later gansta rap

    Now the importance of gangsta rap, and the inculcation of Thugery
    or Thug culture or Gangsta culture was to brainwash
    young African developing minds to the politic of fascism
    Power Control Will

    in factKanye's record "I Control YOu" exemplifes that focus, and th embarcement of illuminati focused ieologies
    of opresion and materialism

    Goebbels and Taylor of Liberia used motions to stir up the masses
    an as metioned it was the man component of Pol Pot's capacity to get folks to do the most inhuman things to each other

    The hateful nd emotionaly filled radio broadcasts in Rwanda had the same effect on milions of Hutus and Tutsis

    The million man march and the march on Washington were noted for their sobriety ,and what brought folks together was non emotional
    altruistic love anda concern for the common good

    aspects of civilization, unknown according to Chiek Anta Diop, to the

    barbarian

    Ankhur,

    What is your definition and meaning of the term 'politics'?
    While we are at it, we might want to review the term 'govern'.

    This hardly qualifies as a full question nor does it qualify as an answer.

    I'll try again:
    What is your definition and meaning of the term 'politics'?

    Then you wouldn't mind referencing one of those dictionaries to post an answer to my request, would you ?

    My question is two parts now: definition and meaning (includes context).
