This may come off as a bit of a rant, but it is something that needs to be said. Stop using magic for political causes. It is a waste of one’s time and energy. Think about it – making the decision to do a ritual, figuring out a spell, gathering materials, conducting the ritual, having to cleanse the self and area after wards. That’s so much unnecessary work that is done. Dare I even state that this is not what magic is for?
Magic is for you, your family, your friends, and your immediate enemies. Magic is not for some politician miles away in an office who doesn’t even know you exist. Do not waste your precious moments on this plane of existence to conduct magic for the political agenda of the “left” or “right.”
Instead of wasting time and effort to do a spell to stop a politician from doing something, how about using the proper channels to make a difference? Write to local and regional politicians, take action by going to protests, and vote. A spell will only go so far in politics when a vote can go further. If political subjects are that important, use the political system – not spiritual systems. I will agree that conducting a ritual and casting a spell will make an individual feel as though they have more control over a situation, but when it comes to politics, it simply is not as strong as a vote. My own personal opinion is to not vote at all. To quote Jack Donovan, "Vote with your ass." I keep politics out of my magic, and my life. It isn't worth the time.
