Andrew W.K. has long stood for the uplifting and unifying power of positive partying. He will continue this tradition in an area that needs it desperately – governmental politics – with the formation of a new political party, The Party Party – where his goal is, “to remove the disillusioning aspects of politics and just have the party”.
Like many Americans, Andrew has been dismayed by the frustration and discord encouraged by the existing two party system. Andrew says, “This polarising form of government has contributed to an adversarial mentality among voters and politicians. The binary ‘Us versus Them’, ‘Red versus Blue’, ‘Right versus Left’ mindset has been a perpetual distraction and distorted our shared quest to make tangible improvements to our country and ourselves. Constantly battling and blaming each other has hindered our ability to collectively and individually contribute towards the true destiny of the United States of America: the complete and total liberation of the human spirit.”
Andrew continues, “Buried deep inside this mountain of overwhelming national anxieties, complex international dilemmas, and endlessly competing principals, there is a fundamental truth – that we are all in this together. Many of us fail to realise that at our very core, we ultimately do share many of the same essential values. These values are what make us Americans and also make us human beings. And if we can celebrate these shared qualities first, and look to find the best in ourselves and each other, perhaps we’ll find the path ahead to be slightly less treacherous. The world isn’t being destroyed by ‘Red or Blue’, ‘Left or Right’, ‘Us or Them’ – it’s being destroyed by one side believing the other side is destroying the world. Perhaps right now we just need a little less politics and a lot more party.”
The relevant paperwork is being filed with the Secretary of State in order to qualify The Party Party as a legitimate and invigorating new option in the calcifying world of institutionalised political philosophy.
