    Why people like to talk too much about politics? And why they think that they know better than others?

      It is not that one knows more than another.  It is the exchange of ideas and opinions which encourages many to participate in political discussions.

      Politics is the discussion of approving theft, murder, and enslaving your fellow man.

      This is why people become passionate about it.

    Simple. Politics has both physical and psychological effects on us.

    That's how debates work. Someone needs to know more or less for it to work.

    There are several reasons.
    1. Politics determine the path our government will take.
    2. Politics are entertaining, in an unfortunate kind of way--there is always a scandal or some foolishness to talk about.
    3. People who like to argue for the sake of arguing can always find a willing antagonist when the subject is politics.
    4. It beats talking about the weather. You cannot do anything about the weather--that is handled by a higher authority, but you can do something about politics.
