I want to know what's truly going on in the world today. I would like to know more about American policies. I am ignorant to U.S. laws as well as loopholes. I wish to become a successful adult and educated citizen. #knowledge #is #power #taxbrackets #budgets.

I think to be more politically educated, you should read newspapers, watch commentaries, and decide what political party you most believe in based on what you believe concerning the law and policy. It is important to know about American history, about other cultures, and to become a well-rounded individual, I would also take courses in government, history and political science. I would volunteer on campaigns of my state representatives when election time comes, and immerse myself in learning about America's history and everything, and everyone it entails by reading books and learning historical criticism from different historians and writers by doing research.

I'd recommend a few books. 1) Secrets of the Federal Reserve 2) Early Extreme Retirement by Jacob Lund Fisker. Podcasts are also a great place to get multiple perspectives. I think it's best to listen to all of them, and make sense of it all for yourself rather than relying on just one source. 

Katie recommends the following next steps:

  • Read
  • Listen
  • Analyze & think

It's important to gain insights from different viewpoints. Consider reading different newspapers and reviewing different websites to obtain knowledge on both sides of an issue before taking any positions. Also make sure to validate the information that you find to make sure it's accurate or if not why it isn't. Once you have more information on a topic participate in discussions around the topic within your local area. If you do this consistently you'll develop a good foundation.
