Apropos of Nothing

I just had a thought and no where to put it. Forgive me if this ain't the most appropriate place. Here's the thought:

Everything is reducible to politics. Even metaphysics. I know, this already seems obnoxious. But just give me a minute. Why does it matter whether I think the answer to life, the universe and everything is best described by the Tao Te Ching, Bible, Qur'an, Bhagavad Bita, qumran scrolls, Kant, Hegel, Quine, al-Wahhab, Ken Wilber, Stephen Hawking, or Douglas Adams? It matters because it effects my behavior. We all ultimately want other people to do what we want them to do. At the risk of employing Geddy-Lee-esque philosophy, even if all you want is for others to leave you alone, you're still making a political statement. Every question is, at bottom, a question of power. Everything is political.

Poke holes. There is a second thought that is pursuant to this first thought, so I wonder if it stands up to scrutiny. What is human that is apolitical? I have what seem to me solid arguments to respond to anything I've been able to put up to this question. I'm sure y'all can do better.

Merry Christmas! Happy New Year!

It'll be worth it.

Can you recall a time when you made an ass of your self and the payoff was so gratifying, so amazing, in the moment you said "I can do anything."
