Is the common person naive about politics?

I feel like the common person is naive when it comes to politics. They care about being "nice" more than what is actually good for them and the country. Like, people might go on riots, loot shops, which will increase coronavirus and drive the economy even further down. Same thing when there is a war going on. When a war is necessary for the security of the country and is also better useful (in case it brings natural resources)
It seems like the average person has a wrong idea of what politics is
