The New Style of Debate


The video he is referencing is here.

Bernard Chapin also addresses debating in the past and how it's gone down the toilet.

That....is just so sad.
But not at all surprising. Civil discourse is no longer required as it DOESN'T GET RESULTS!!! Look at how protests have been organised lately. Does logical, rational and civil behaviour EVER get any notice? The squeaky wheel is what gets the grease, to bad we don't bother with replacement anymore.
Same applies to the 'scientific method'. Science is now about deriving a theory and tailoring evidence to support it instead of studying the evidence and deriving the theory for the observations.

I'm black, and these are the things that make it more difficult to be respected in this society.

The "debate" that was being presented is just outright mortifying.

Turn out the lights.

America is finished.

It was fun while it lasted, but that's all over now.

The United States of America, 1776-2014. Cause of death: suicide.

I'm am also black and these guys are nothing but a bunch of babbling fools. You would think the audience would be laughing but they were sitting there in all seriousness. How could anyone with brain sit through something so utterly retarded. I'm laughing at the same time I'm crying. Hopefully young minds don't buy into this kind of senseless garbage. Hopefully.
