Politics should be in the fabric of our lives.
It should be as convenient as getting a cup of coffee and adding cream.
It should be as simple and momentary as checking the time.
It should be as insightful as glancing at the weather forecast.
It should be as involved and delightful as buying a stock.
It should provide a recognizable pattern in the same way we recognize trends in the stock market.
It should be as regular and habitual as brushing your teeth.
The political economy is that invisible mesh you know surrounds and affects you but over which you feel you have no control.
