Of course we got it from the Greeks.  "Politikos" is Greek.  The use of it later in very slightly different structure is fine, but derivitive.  Even the Romans didn't bother to change it much.

Not directly.  All words derive from Og, when he said "ug".  That proves what?  The French got it from the Greek, not the English, the English aren't educated enough.

Well, I suppose I might debate you that the truly original well-understood vocalization was "ack" when the first flint-knapping homo cut himself on his own sharp rock.  But that would be pushing proto-language too far back.

I never said the French got the word "politics" from the English.  That is an imagining from your own mind.  I said it came from Greek to the Romans who didn't change it much.  And since French, Italian, and Spanish all come from Roman Latin, they had it as well.  The English probably it from the French Normans when the Normans conquered England, but some English monks were exposed to Latin, so one can't be sure.

Did you even notice that your own link source referred to "modeled on Aristotle's ta politika "affairs of state"?   The original word (greek), so far as I can find.  I'm not trying to be mean, but do you just grab things and not even read them?

Yes, and do you ignore anything else to be noticed there ... namely the modern meaning came about relatively late.
