It helps to keep in mind that "political" is "πολιτικός, -ή, -ό" in Greek, and that "πολιτιστικός, -ή, -ό" stems from "πολιτισμός" - "civlization, culture".
[The parts in bold do not necessarily indicate any grammatical parts of the words—i.e. stem, etc.—but are just meant to serve as a visual aid.]

By the way, have 7 lingots for your cheerful profile picture.
