‘All Politics is Local’

By Anthony DiSimone, Wildwood

To the Editor:

What form of egregious folly is it when men squander time and effort on personal quarrels when there is work for this country to do? We note the petty interpersonal animus that stymies progress for solution of monumental challenges that are left to extend while those who hold power do, instead, the worthless bickering and self-indulgent political partisanship but also within the same general support references.

No solace is found in cutting off one’s nose to spite one’s face. Nor does interparty backstabbing, undermining and personal hatreds promote any worthy outcome. Along with acts of conflict, those who sit idly by refusing to defuse conflicts or promote a more productive liaison are as guilty as the perpetration of malice and chaos. While those who are silent in their faux neutrality claim to be above the fray, they are in a way worse agitators by the deafening silence of their malfeasance.

Be warned. Defying unity at any level is a disaster. This includes local politics. To quote Tip O’Neill, a former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, “All politics is local.”
