Politics (from Greek πολιτικός, "of, for, or relating to citizens"), is a process by which groups of people make collective decisions. The term is generally applied to the art or science of running governmental or state affairs. It also refers to behavior within civil governments.

[close] We read, in my experience, and read a whole lot. Not cozy or charming either. We read the" lists" and we were looking for a kind of sophistication that defined that generation. Someone was always reading something "important". Brave New World, Fahrenheit 451, Portnoy's Complaint, Everything You Wanted to Know About Sex; sci-fi (things that are now almost happening), politics - especially post-WW2. We dropped author names and spent our extra money on paperbacks. The word "banned"or adult was a lure. French authors were very daring and we cared for the book before it ever became a movie. I read all of James Baldwin, Ferlinghetti, Heinlein. I read Lord of the Rings in 1965. All of it. The Tin Drum. And all of Sherlock Holmes and truncated versions from BOMC that my father ordered. Leon Uris, Clockwork Orange - if this is cluttered it is how we read then. If you are one of those 60's high school readers - here's a new way to meet others who did the same.
