merge with political and give unified title
According to the Oxford English Dictionary the first English usage of the word Politics can be traced back to 1450:
Aristotle..componede..the book of Etiques and of Polettiques.
Although a distinction is often made between small-p and capital-p politics, at times it’s unclear if this distinction is valid.
Small-p politics refers to competitive human interactions within a workplace, organization or home.
Capital-p politics refers to the dynamics within a government system–be this local, municipal, provincial, state, federal, hemispherical (e.g. NATO, NORAD) or global (e.g. the United Nations).
To say that an environment is ‘political‘ might sometimes be a euphemistic way – and political in itself – of saying something quite different.
Perhaps another distinction could be made not between small and capital-p politics but between honorable and dishonorable politics, or between fair and unfair play, human decency and human indecency.
