I don't often meta-comment around here, but the above post is textbook trolling (successfully). If you want to argue big-picture political issues, go right ahead. Just don't stand on a man's coffin while doing so.

"Please avoid introducing classic flamewar topics unless you have something genuinely new to say about them."

Argue big-picture political issues if you have genuine contributions to make. If you just want to say something boring like "religion is the root of all evil", it doesn't belong on Hacker News in any thread.
