Essays on Politics

Many of the traditional 'big issues' arise in politics. Alongside all the electioneering and spin, you'll find discussion of difficult but important policy choices every nation must take a stand on. Where the issues are first and foremost ethical, they're covered in the philosophy section of this site. Otherwise they're covered here - from the most general choice of ideology and economic policies, to what we are to make of particular policies like affirmative action.
