Political issues are those which concern the government and the impact they have.
Considering the sheer power some governments (and in some cases dictators have) it is fair to say they have a major affect on the world and therefore how we view it. Personally I cannot view the world as perfect when the masses suffer at the hands of the minorities in charge. Dictatorship and the influence it has stops me from being able to see the world as a perfect environment for many.
What political issues (if any) do you feel prevent the world from being perfect?
