Into The Weeds: Longform Political Discussion

Welcome to what is hopefully going to be one of many spaces on this site devoted to more detailed analysis and slower-paced discussion of the many events happening today in the world. Got any white papers you want people to mull over? How about a new bill getting shopped around your local legislature? All those are welcome and encouraged here to get talked about. No in-depth topic is too nerdy! VIDEOS ARE GOOD TOO

GROUND RULES:

  • Embeds are fine but make sure they can facilitate discussion deeper than “Oh that’s neat.” or “Oh that’s bad”
  • TLDR Policy: While everyone is heavily encouraged to read the articles, tweets, bills, studies in full before responding you can still feel free to post excerpts especially if they contain something specific you want to talk about
  • Jokes are going to happen but try to keep them in the snark while making a larger point mode and not just a quick one-liner

Also as this is my first time posting a thing like this I do welcome some feedback to improve it for later.
