No way, unless it is HEAVILY moderated and all roads lead back to Rome. ie. all discussion of politics, government, leadership, global issues, environment, political parties, elections, candidates, domestic policy, foreign policy, healthcare, nationalism, education, war lead back to a greater understanding of the self.
If people don't see that their government and world is a manifestation of themselves, why bother??????? It will just be a mental pissing contest if the discussion is not continually directed back to the individual.
