Politics Influence Job Stability
How does one manage human politics whether social or in the workplace?
The easy answer is by tyranny, force, brainwashing, and threat.
History has shown time and again, that a person or entity is able to grab hold of an entire people, first in mind, body, then soul.
People in many jobs or career situations are employed and ruled by the politics or political sway of their CEO's and other owners.
Political expression on the job is frowned on. It may not be discussed but through clothing, attitude, and body markings, the expression is felt and can damper any expression, or threaten violence into the culture of workplace situations.
Keeping human beings bullied, bound by rules, may keep them silenced and under heavy prohibitions; this is one way to manage people, but it does not stop expression.

Managing The Politics of People
The true answer: Managing the politics of human beings, is like trying to build a dam with sponges.
Workplaces in North America have stringent policies about discussing politics, and religion in the workplace. There are also clear rules and boundaries laid out regarding the limits of personal human interactions.
Workplaces in the United States of America used to have clear guidelines in place regarding topics that stir human emotions to a fever pitch. Managers have learned that emotional topics are best left for places suited to that activity.
A place of employment is not a place to push personal political positions, nor is it a place for proselytizing.
Work is a place to exchange energy, talents, and skills for an agreed amount of filthy lucre or wages.
North America - Shift of Social Norms
Social settings are always evolving.
The change of societal rules and boundaries in dealing with personal and public intercourse have been rapid from 2002 - Today
In North America, in the United States in the last 20 years, we have seen a different trend in social settings. It is becoming chic to be rude, intrusive, and interlope within other's relationships and space that was once limited by some social niceties.
It seems as if Social Settings seem to be a good a place as any for politicians and political ideals to be blasted; one side against the other. In 2019, if the average person has a problem with fundamental Christian ideology plastered all over the walls of breakrooms and administrative offices they better keep it to themselves.
Ideas or Solutions
- This may be an excellent time for debate halls
- Join or encourage membership in Toastmasters.
- Provide more areas for oration, provide settings to allow enemies to think, consider, and remember they are being graded by an audience
- Cover topics such as: Communication,
- Research ,
- Consistency and Validity
- Contrast & Comparison
- It is important for thinking humans to take the opposite position.
- Make people more responsible for their words and / or actions, hopefully causing people to consider others, or their own consequences.
Another helpful suggestion is that the majority of humans, who are not bad actors, and who do not as a habit behave violently or in a rude manner, not accept, support or promote bad behavior actors..
Do not allow by doing nothing or pretending it is not happening: "That is just the way they are...". No more okays for intrusive, insensitive and people being mean, nor get away with it.
This type of bad behavior is not acceptable in a kind and careful society.

What A Shift
A shift in our society that I have witnessed the past ten years is regarding the ACA or Obamacare. In the South; specifically Arkansas, there has been an unnatural push to convince the poorest people to vote against and act against their best interests.
There are hundreds of individuals begging and pleading for help with medical bills, and those people are generally eligible for free or very low health insurance coverage. They refuse to enroll and make use of the ACA because in some cases the individual will be at odds with their employers, church membership or community if they accept Affordable Care.
