Look, I realize I'm the new boy here and I probably shouldn't get too opinionated just yet. But just hear me out for a second. If you look around on the internet, you'll find that there are literally thousands of discussion boards out there. Now, the factor that distinguishes the good ones from the bad ones is the ability to attract people who share a common interest - a niche crowd. There needs to be a common denominator, something that makes this particular forum unique. I'd hate to see this site falling into the same trap as 90% of the other forums by getting too general. Why open up the doors to people who aren't even interested in personal development?
And yes I can see how personal development is related to politics, but I can also see how quantum physics is related to a puppy. There's actually a reason we separate different areas of knowledge!
And if you want I could compile a list of good forums where mature adults talk about politics.
