Apoliticism is defined as antipathy towards all political affiliations. I think I would consider myself apolitical or at least a quietist. I believe that participation in politics and political systems is problematic. There is a strong religious component to my position. However, I would like to put forward my theory of why apoliticism is a good thing: 1. Political participation of the masses only gives the latter the illusion of empowerment. In every system of government, including democracy, power is ultimately wielded by people of influence; the wealthy and the highly educated. The common people, and particularly the marginalized segments of society, are never empowered. 2. Political participation takes the focus off of the heavenly Kingdom of God. In my belief; the “Kingdom of God” is an actual, real coming divine Government which will be heralded by the Messiah, and through it all the present day governments, states, and regimes, all of them without exception are characterized by corruption, oppression of the weak, and injustice, will be overthrown 3. Worldly politics tends to bring out the worst in people; making them partisan and creating needless division in society. Very often it leads to violence. Would be interested in any criticism or comments.
