What I have noticed in my 3 months and 2 days in this community is that people love to debate! (Or argue..)
Well I thought that our love of debating should be used to debate less serious issues to do with popular culture or address many issues and question social norms that we face in the modern world. As I am taking a Politics course this would be a great chance for me to learn something new also.
Every few days (whenever a debate has gone cold) I will edit this post and put in a new topic of debate. These topics will be chosen by you. Please comment a certain topic and I'll put up whatever one I think is best to go with for the moment. Only do this if there is no on-going debate.
Rules of debate:
1) Be respectful, this includes no personal insults or any language that may be considered offensive.
2) Try not to spam.
3) Feel free to use links as evidence such as pages from Wikipedia.
4) Use of media such as pictures and videos is allowed.
5) Stay on topic.
6) You do not have to create long posts, your reply may be as long or short as you want it to be.
This debate does not have to be completely formal, I do not expect everyone to be as courteous as possible. The House of Commons in Westminster, London, always experience the most jeering and teasing of any debate, yet they remain respectful to some level. I expect you to do the same
To keep up-to-date with the debate I suggest following this thread and re-visiting whenever you can.
Topic of debate: TBA
Past topics: European Knight vs Japanese Samurai - Conclusion = Knight.
I urge everyone to get involved, have your say on the matter! Best of luck in The Grand Debate!
