My understanding is that it's not that involvement in politics that is somehow bad, but that discussing politics here is perilous, just like discussing feminism and PUA is, or sports, or any other subject matter where identity and opinions are intertwined. If anything, MIRI/CFAR should be doing more in terms of lobbying.

Would you like to try a non-intertwined conversation? :-)

When you say lobbying, what do you mean and how is it the most effective?
