    Politics is how “stuff” “gets” “done.”

    1427, from M.Fr. politique (14c.) “political,” from L. politicus “of citizens or the state, civil, civic,” from Gk. politikos “of citizens or the state,” from polites “citizen,” from polis “city”. Replaced in most adj. senses by political (1551). The verb meaning “to engage in political activity” is first recorded 1917, a back-formation from politics. [“politic.” Online Etymology Dictionary. Douglas Harper, Historian. 12 Jun. 2007.]
