Most delicious cakes have several layers. They also have a filling in between the layers, and a cream on top, with decorations all over. To understand the essence of political reality around, the same “cake approach” can be used. Politics is a complicated thing with many actors and interests involved on different levels. There can never be a single answer or point on view on why a certain political event has happened. Instead, it’s worth to analyze things from several levels, for example: local, regional and domestic; or economic, political and cultural, or personal, group, and global. You get the idea.
A good cake has always many things in it. If we want to make a critical analysis of any event, we should remember about the cake: the more layers we expose, the better picture we will have. Otherwise our brains will feed on tasteless cereals.
