Politics arise when a group bigger than a single person needs to make a decision of what to do or how to handle a specific situation or type of situations.

Politics are about:

  • what decisions do we need to make together, vs what is left on the backburner for future meetings, or left for everyone to decide for themselves?
  • what do we actually decide to do?
  • how do we make it so that those decisions are followed?
  • and, just as importantly, how do we answer those previous questions themselves?

These questions are unavoidable for any group. This is politics.[1]
