Quoting Brendan

I think his "western-colonialistic" means current world affairs where "western" nations impose their ideals on every other country... the new colonialism is economic in nature..

If that is what it means, it seems overly dramatic to me. I dont think that because we talk about politics on a travel forum, we would be imposing our ideas on others.
I think this excuse is just another form of the apathy, which causes people to bury their heads in the sand, and not think about politics.

Think again, Mel. And while you're at it, have a look at my profile :)

Imo, if one wants to talk politics, one should sign up for a forum devoted to politics. Let's not risk the good vibes of TP by doing so here.

Neils, I want to discuss politics, with people who do not use expressions like, western-colonialistic political mouthpiece.

However, like u suggested, I was going to join a forum dedicated to political discussions alone. I was told by a friend, that these sites tend to have a lot of arrogant pompus members. Not my scene.

And I think there are enough people on this forum, who are grown up enough to discuss politics, without ruining the good vibes. I think being politically aware is an important part of traveling, so discussions about politics certainly belong, on this site, in my opinion. But I suppose, the moderators are right. These discussions can take place, in the Off Topic. We dont necessarily need a whole forum, for them.
