Andrew writes: I would like to create a space for psychological reflection on the election campaign, with polling day less than three weeks away. The hope is for informed, challenging, opinionated and lively conversation that is not just what any journalist could say, yet also not reductive psychobabble/jargon only interesting to the psy professionals. The questions I can imagine exciting people at this time include: What do elections mean to you (if anything), how are you experiencing this one, and do you agree that politics is about way more than elections?
