Why I avoid politics in most places — Robin Wils's website
Last modified: Sat, Aug 29, 2020
People start to assume things
I rather have my own opinions than being associated with what I voted for. People who disagree with the party which you voted for might hate you because they think that you agree with this or that.
It takes time
Talking about politics takes time. There is a time a place to talk about it, but I find that it often brings more problems as solutions. I don’t even follow the media, since most things are lies and propaganda. Searching for the truth can take a lot of your time. I prefer to use my time for things which I find more important.
There are people with which I can talk about politics, but those people are people who dare to question things. They research to find the truth because they are very interested in politics. I am just not that interested in politics.
What you vote for is often none of people their business in the first place, so why would you waste a ton of time on such a topic?
Not everyone understands you
You vote for things which matter to you. It is possible that you are like me and that you don’t stand for some party. I prefer to think in ideas, not in people or parties. I believe that you can’t completely agree with someone.
You can try to explain why you vote for something, but discussions like that can take a ton of time. I think that every party has some problems. It isn’t possible to have something which everyone agrees with.
You can’t avoid politics
Yes, that is correct. There is politics in everything, but talking about some problems usually brings more trouble than it is worth in my opinion. It also depends on the person which you are talking with.
I don’t want to associate myself with some person or party. It is pretty impossible to not talk about politics in some way. Talking about big problems is usually not worth your time in my opinion. Unless that person has done enough research. You also have to be in the right place at the right time.
So, which party did Robin Wils vote for?
I won’t give you the answer, since I don’t stand for any party and I don’t want to create a long discussion. I prefer to keep it secret and my opinion can change from year to year.
