Welcome to "How To Be...", guiding you through life's tricky topics and skills by reading through the best books out there. In democratic societies, we are governed by consent. Hence, it is our job to become responsible citizens before voting or electing those in office (or placed to appointments), to represent our interests and create a better world for all of humanity. So how do we become politically responsible? Hence, I spoke to US philosopher and Fear of Black Consciousness author Professor Lewis R. Gordon on why it is important to be politically responsible, as well as other experts' books to see if their advice can help all of us. I also heard from others who have gained some mastery over themselves. Please hit subscribe to hear the whole series on life skills! It should be short and sweet. I look forward to journeying with you through this maze of hacks.
