Questions explaining a subject in simple terms
The title may be a bit ambiguous, but I recently came across the following questions:
Those questions seek answers about a broad concept (the EU , its elections and Brexit, respectively) in a way that requires little or no prior knowledge on the subject.
How I see it
On the one hand I think these questions can be broad. On the other hand I think these provide a good opportunity to spread knowledge on important subjects.
Subject for discussion
I think we should consider if we want to encourage this type of question. For example, an idea might be to create a new tag so questions of this type are easy to find.
Similar situation on other SE sites
A similar situation exists on the mathematics stack exchange. The 'soft-question' tag over there is aimed at
questions whose answers can't be objectively evaluated as correct or incorrect, but which are still relevant to this site.
That tag seems do rather well and a collection of questions explaining concepts (e.g. sovereignty), organisations (e.g. the EU) and events (e.g. Brexit) in simple terms might be successful here as well.
Please share your view by writing an answer below, this after all a discussion.
