If I think that there are no political answers to today’s big problems, and that political activism or action is useless, then why do I talk about politics?

Most content providers talk about politics in order to persuade you to take some kind of political action. They do this by either preaching to the choir about how evil the other side is (examples: Fox News on the right and Huffington Post on the left) or by attempting to persuade you to shift your position to theirs (examples: Stephen Crowder on the right and Young Turks on the left).
