Politics as Regulation of Society
The order of the state and society is defined by politics. A general distinction is often made between structures (e.g., institutions like a parliamentary system), processes (e.g., democracy) and content (that is the area of concrete regulation).
Whilst in most Western countries, conflicts are solved and a democratic consensus is reached on important questions through democratic structures, there are of course also many other forms of government around the world (like monarchies or dictatorships).
Political Science deals in general with decision-making and the distribution of social resources (social justice often plays an important role in this).
Countless political theories exist that can be highly controversial: capitalism, communism, and liberalism are just some of the most important ideas in the distribution of power. There are already high-quality online courses about some of these political topics and questions.
