A public square or park where all sorts of people (possibly including the SoapboxSadie) can be found making impassioned speeches about various subjects; usually political, but sometimes rather more bizarre. Crowds will gather to variously cheer or jeer. Generally, the quality of the speeches made won't be very high, and will be on such topics as outlandish [[UsefulNotes/ConspiracyTheories conspiracy theories]], [[NostalgiaFilter how things were better back in the old days]] and the verbal equivalent of the StronglyWordedLetter. In short, at a Soapbox Square you will see very few [[QuintessentialBritishGentleman well spoken gentleman]] but a heaping helping of [[TalkativeLoons babbling loons]].
