An issue that directly surrounds individual plays a vital role in determining the types of life that the person in question leads.  The interaction between an individual and the community issues as explained by  the theory of cognitive development does not only influence the type of life that an individual leads but  defines the impact that the interacting issues have on such community members.  The most conspicuous societal issue that surrounds that has influenced my life in the context of political affiliations is the conservative party. Even though  I do not agree with the policies laid  down by the conservative party, I agree with most  of the parties policies  thus  I can confidently describe myself an active member of the conservative party.
