6.6.4 The Power Vested in National Politicians
National politicians exert more power over people’s lives on a daily basis than any other level of political subsidiarity, as examined in the following sub-sections:
- They dominate the internal governance of a country (188.8.131.52).
- They have an important role in representing their countries in international negotiations and global governance (184.108.40.206).
- They can try to gain popularity by whipping up the kind of nationalism that prides itself on opposing other countries (220.127.116.11).
