Harmony and dissonance: organizing the people's voices on political controversies

Abstract

The wikileaks documents about the death of Osama Bin Laden and the debates about the economic crisis in Greece and other European countries are some of the controversial topics being played on the news everyday. Each of these topics has many different aspects, and there is no absolute, simple truth in answering questions such as: should the EU guarantee the financial stability of each member country, or should the countries themselves be solely responsible? To understand the landscape of opinions, it would be helpful to know which politician or other stakeholder takes which position - support or opposition - on these aspects of controversial topics.
