Have you ever dreamt about meeting SW people IRL?
I did and it was nuts. It was kind of like I was in a Big Brother House and was surrounded by all these strange Americans I didn't recognise. Then they started finding out who each other were, smiling and hugging. The only problem was that thes...

This is question about worldwide politics. By democracy, I don't just mean voting; I mean independence of media, judiciary and the right to dissent etc. The most extreme examples of this happening are in Poland, Hungary, Turkey and Venezuela. Ev...
