Debate and Discussion

Debate and Discussion

Debate/discussion is for enlightenment and stimulation, advancing an idea and friendship, means of conflict resolution and bringing peace. Intelligence and integrity are desired elements in a discussion or debate; articulation or a good sense of humor simply ads the flavor.

Branding or tagging opponents, shouting someone down, hollow threats of unspecified action … defeats the intent and purpose of debate. Historically and logically the wicked party avoids debate and brings in the dirty tricks.

Victory to FREEDOM OF SPEECH. Victory to debate and discussion.
