Politics

Politics is the study or practice of the distribution of power and resources within a given community (a usually hierarchically organized population) as well as the interrelationship(s) between communities. Politics is about achieving and exercising positions of governance — organized control over a human community, particularly a state. A political system is a framework which defines acceptable political methods within a given society.
