Politics? According to the dictionary, it means “practical wisdom,” or “crafty and unscrupulous,” or “expedient.” What politics usually means in practice is the art and science of distributing the money which accrues to the government from the people’s taxes. Politicians are the people who decide this distribution, who make the decisions as to where and how it is to be used, and thus, as the flow of money controls action, it is by and large the politicians (more than any other group in the community) who control what new projects, whether they be road building or research, are carried out.
