When I commenced classes after starting my path towards an undergraduate degree in political science at the university of calgary I was informed by an instructor during commencement that poltical science is the study of power relationships. Though useful, I feel that cold fact is the reason people get alienated from science when not a part of its establishment.
Science is supposed to serve humanity. Then I argue that anything worthy of the name of “poltical science” should be the study of how to help humanity through the inclusion of everyone in poltical debate. There are now so many tactics for excluding people from our so called “democracy”, such as voter supression, the corrupt prison system, or even calling people mentally ill. It is obviously communist to have everyone a part of the democratic process instead of relegating power to a bunch of wealthy persons.
For a poltical science that enables all to be a part of humanity in a meaningful way!
