A new and somewhat controversial group popped up on Facebook last week. It’s a bit inaccurately named, if you ask me: the group is called “The Skeptical Movement Should be Apolitical”, but if you read the statement on its page, the group appears to be arguing for keeping the “movement” free of any specific party affiliation. Regardless of the semantics, I think it’s an important topic for discussion.
Should organized skepticism try to avoid political affiliation? Should it/can it be completely apolitical?
