  1. First, you need to understand what beliefs are. I see it this way. Beliefs are confidence in a particular methodology to achieve a particular goal, while completely denying other methodologies and the importance of other goals. In simple terms , beliefs are divided into right and wrong (good and evil).
    Now everything becomes much clearer. Beliefs are what you need to run away from , and you ask the question of how to move towards them at the meeting. This is an empty occupation and even harmful (both for you and for society).
    Michel Foucault said a good phrase in 1984. “I think I have been on most of the squares of the political chessboard , consistently and sometimes simultaneously : anarchist, leftist, open or disguised Marxist, nihilist, overt or covert anti-Marxist, technocrat in the service of Charles de Gaulle, new liberal, etc. In reality, I prefer not to identify myself in any way , and I am surprised by the variety of ratings and classifications.” It seems to me that such “beliefs” should be adhered to. People will put “labels” on you in any case , you can't get away from it. But building a wall with your own hands, shutting out the real world, is reckless. At some beautiful (or terrible) moment, the real world can break down this wall and rush in on you without warning. It's going to hurt. But it will be much worse if this wall served as the support of your “hall of reason”.
    In any case, a person cannot know the objective world while remaining its subject. So , in a certain way, you can't escape from your beliefs. The world is very diverse. And the more concepts you see, the closer you can get to the truth. Therefore, study different ideologies and draw your own conclusions.

  2. Right here – Polit. Izm. (or its telegram bot @izmobot) – you can choose answers to various current political questions. Each question was answered by representatives of United Russia, Communists, National Democrats, anarchists, Zhirinovites, Just Russians, Yabloko activists, the Party of Growth and the party of professionals. You first select an answer that is close to you, and then find out who it belongs to, and get access to advanced comments (including videos). After completing all the questions, you will determine exactly which movement you are leaning towards. If you are too lazy to mark it yourself, the telegram bot has individual statistics.

  3. First, take your time. In due time, when you have read many different opinions, gain experience in resolving situations, solving problems, and begin to understand what is yours and what is not yours.

    Secondly, do not make final decisions, especially when your specific life does not require “you need to decide, or you are on the side of that part of your team that votes for this decision of the authorities or-you are on the side of those who are against and are going to quit!”

    As soon as you learn to make 100% correct choices every time in your practical life, skilfully avoiding the rake, then you will begin to see the right choice in politics.

  4. Like, you don't have any, but you want to? Or do you have any, but you don't know which ones? I'm sure there are some of them. Tell us what appeals to you more, and it will be easier to understand. If it is a miracle that there are no convictions, i.e. you don't know at all in the interests of which part of society the government should act (and it always acts in the interests of a part of society), decide which part you belong to, then it will be clear which political party most fully meets your interests.

  5. Just acquiring beliefs is not a simple matter, it is enough not to be dead. But reasonable beliefs are already a job. Versatile and well-founded beliefs are generally a daily task.�

    First, you should always keep up to date with the latest political developments in your country and in the world. Be sure to read different sources, and you can also choose several political analysts with different views. This will allow you to avoid immediately being caught in an ideological bubble, which can lead to an initial bias.�

    Caveat: Supporting a particular ideology does not necessarily imply bias. Your ideological beliefs should help you assess the situation, and not serve as a prejudice, i.e. prevent an adequate assessment of it. That is why it is very important to get acquainted with the available information as holistically as possible.

    Second, pay attention to the match part. Of course, no one is forcing you to go to study political science, but some basic books on political science will benefit everyone. And in history, too. After all, sometimes an erroneous assessment of the situation occurs both due to ignorance of the context, and the lack of laggy analytical tools.

    And now that you are armed with sources of information and theoretical knowledge, there is only one thing left: analyze, analyze, and analyze again. Also think about what your own moral values in life are that don't directly relate to politics.

    Finally, while your beliefs are being defined (and even after), be sure to keep two questions in mind: “How does politics work in reality?” And “How would I like it to work?”

    Beliefs can be monolithic, but it's good if they develop with you over the course of your life. After all, you are constantly accumulating life experience that affects your point of view. And the world does not stand still. You can decide on a political direction, but be prepared for the fact that the direction is not always a straight line)
