I read quite a lot of what is written in the Introspectrum which leads me to enquire what books people who post here read. You all seem to have aquired a lot of knowledge on topics such as politics, philosophy sociology and countless other subjects which crop up. Many seem to not only have a keen interest in politics but possess the ability to speak on political matters extensively. Is this simply due to following the news and having a genuine and avid interest in political matters? If so, what newspapers/news channels to do you read/watch and is where is your interest derived from? Discuss.
