They are natural things we do to survive, avert dander and assert our individuality, e.g., crude farming, running on an errand, hunting, learning to make shelter, fishing, obeying laws and authorities, avoiding conflicts, etc

Communicative skills assist the intellectual skills to be expressed adequately and specifically.

Another avenue for political participation is
running for office. Being a public official
requires a great deal of dedication, time,
energy, and money. About 3 percent of the
adult population holds an elected or
appointed public office.
Participating by Protesting:
Political protest activity represents another
sphere of political participation. Protests
involve unconventional, and sometimes
unlawful, political actions that are
undertaken to gain rewards from the political
and economic system. Protest behavior can
take many forms. People can engage in
nonviolent acts of civil disobedience where
they deliberately break a law that they
consider to be unjust. This tactic was used
effectively during the 1960s civil rights
movement .
Being a Part of Civil Society About half the
population takes part in national and
community political affairs by joining an
interest group, issue-based organization,
civic organization, or political party.
Organizations with the goal of promoting
civic action on behalf of particular causes, or
single-issue groups, have proliferated. These
groups are as diverse as the People for the
Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), which
supports animal rights, to the Concord
Coalition, which seeks to protect Social
Security benefits.
protest A protest is an expression of
objection, by words or by actions, to
particular events, policies, or situations.
Protests can take many different forms, from
individual statements to mass
demonstrations. Protesters may organize a
protest as a way of publicly making their
opinions heard in an attempt to influence
public opinion or government policy.

Contacting Public Officials Expressing
opinions to leaders is one avenue of political
participation. The number of people
contacting public officials at all levels of
government has risen markedly over the past
three decades. Seventeen percent of
Americans contacted a public official in 1976.
By 2008, 44 percent of the public had
contacted their member of Congress about an
issue or concern. E-mail has made contacting
public officials cheaper and easier than the
traditional method of mailing a letter.
