Politics demands sarcifice.


Explanation:

Another, and probably even better, way is to say "Politics will demand sacrifice", which will stress that this will never end.

In fact, I got numerous results (over 360) from the web. Below are just some of the examples illustrating the way this idea is expressed in English:

“The gods demand sacrifice.”
http://ourworld.compuserve.com/homepages/Dean_Lenort/jocko.h...

“As a member of the privileged elite it's no suprise that activism would demand sacrifice of privilege, …”
http://epsilon3.georgetown.edu/~coventrm/asa2000/panel8/mess...

“If miracles had been wrought only by those who demand sacrifice for themselves, …”
http://www.newadvent.org/fathers/120110.htm


Best regards.
