I will threaten to cancel my subscription if there is not more politics in Stereophile. Politics is part of everyday life. Every time we make a choice which we think will effect others we take political factors into account. (Choosing to ignore is still a choice)
The audiophile community obviously has its own internal politics: objective vs subjective vs tubes vs analogue vs... well, we all know the list. But there are also international-level issues such as outsourcing of manufacture, national issues such as physical stores vs online buying and personal issues such as whether Marina will allow Sam to have those in her living room.
Music, also, is political. Do I buy this benefit album? Buy re-issues or support currently working musicians? Would Shostakovich's music be as interesting without knowing of his conflict with the Soviet authorities? Would the history of Jazz be as fascinating if not for the struiggles many musicians had to perform their music and have it recorded?
And of course censorship of discussion is highly political.
