  •  Probably ego involvement. Politics does tend (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    to bring out the ego-driven, i.e. those of us who think we know "best" for others. I try to quash that tendency in myself, which helps me recognize it in others.

    But egoity is powerful, and stronger in some of us than in others. Politics seems to attract strong egoists. Unfortunately, what one individual's ego sees as appropriate, may not be the best thing for the interests of the majority of voters.
