In countries around the world, including the United States of America, politics and governance form an essential part of everyday life. Countries depend on politics and governance, to run their leadership systems, political, systems, economic systems and cultural systems. Politics and governance also affects people individually, in the entire world.
The study of politics and government has the importance of enabling people to understand the ways political and government systems work with respect to local, national and international levels. The study of politics and government covers essential topics such as electoral systems, political parties, pressure groups and their influence in the society. In the United States of America, for example, the study of politics and government helps citizens to understand why politics and government affects them directly, and the importance the electoral process has to them. It also helps people understand the constitution and its importance and the reason why they should participate in voting for political leaders and forms of government (Hajer 75).
The notion of human nature does not exist in the world. People differ in various aspects despite the fact that we all live in houses, breath oxygen and do other things and share them alike. There is no human characteristic that exists universally. In most cases, we refer human culture to as human nature implying that we can have things that persist for long until we mistake them for human nature. With that, therefore, human nature does not affect the kind of government that proves best for human beings, to create. Instead, human culture influences the king of governance that people decide to have. Leaders come up government systems that respond to the needs of human cultures and the things that our cultures considers as essential in the everyday life of the society (Adams 49).
In conclusion, the study of politics and government has significance for every person. It shapes up the beliefs and decisions people make with regard to governance systems. Human culture, as opposed to human nature, influences the governance best for human beings because human nature does not exist.
