Why I didn't do student politics

A couple of years ago I began seriously considering my political views and ideology, and religious belief.

I was surprised and shocked to find that, on closer inspection, much of what I believed was:

  1. programmed response
  2. mutually contradictory
  3. totally irrational.

I came to the conclusion that I should try to steer away from fixed sets of views. Hence I totally refused to get involved in student politics.
