Politics is one of the oldest areas in the realms of visual culture. Includes all activities associated with governance especially when it’s a debate that involves two or more parties. The most fundamental question one can ask himself is ‘how can one make it in politics?’ Well, in the policy one will need a few basics for them to make it. A good example is the president of the USA, Barack Obama. He is one of those people who has risen to power which many never thought he would not. What is the relationship between politics and culture? Understanding the two will help one to know within which limits he/she should work. Failure to find this means losing single essential focus on the research question involving the research will not mean much.
There is a very thin line between politics and culture. This is because for one to be given a political post somewhere or in a particular country, sometimes people consider the cultural point of view of a person. This has been seen in the tightly contested USA elections that were recently concluded. Political journeys have to begin somewhere and will mature depending on the cultural perspective of a community.
Political affiliations that are used by politicians often form a large part of the political concept, and they are the ones who define someone’s political life. Obama rose to power using the democrat’s ladder while Trump has risen to power using the Republican ladder. It’s all about how well we chose and embraced our affiliations.
In the political arena, culture is a commonly considered factor as it gets to define who one is or who one might be. Nobody can dispute the contribution of both to each other’s survival. Once in power one tends to protect his/her culture.
