Truth is OBJECTIVE

SlowDMO
simtuzi

It seems to me, that in this dysphoric democracy, (officially a republic), what had always been "up" is now "down" and visa versa. If you think society/the global collective has made 1 inch of progress in the last 100 years, this is your debate... Make the case for moral subjectivity or progressivism. (Which I think are basically interchangeable.)...

Other than that, everything (excluding blatantly anti-debate practices like Google Doc links to avoid the character limit) is fair game.Alt accounts of ours are allowed to vote.If Zarroette votes, the member she votes for instantly wins.
