As I understand the new proposed forum it is not just about politics but about more interesting topics as well such as environment and education. I really would appreciate some intelligent and open minded discussion on such topics since that does contribute to your personal development. It is hard enough to get trustworthy information on these topics, a forum could greatly assist in becoming more aware on these issues. The same to an extend goed for politics for me. It is very needed to question politicians and getting the views others have, getting more information, can assist in growing in that area personally.
I do expect the new forum to be hard to manage however.
