Teaching debating is an essential for the future of our generation
Debate Rounds (3)
I believe intellectual thought is a priority, but it doesn't necessarily manifest in society in debating.
Therefore, debating is not necessary for the future.
Indeed debating is a useful skill, but not necessary.
Additionally, it isn't practical.
(i do love debating however)
I restate that debating is not imperative, some of its benefit can possibly be achieved through other means in ways that hurts society less and is easily implemented.
The negative believes that the benefits of debating can be achieved through other means that hurt society less and can be easily implemented. As the affirmative, I would like to hear an example of this other 'way'.
In my opinion, challenges in the future will include combating global warming, releasing first-world countries from debt, managing diminishing resources and effectively curing diseases and hunger in impoverished areas. By just looking on the internet we can find many solutions for these issues but all are flawed and include side-effects. Our generations need to be taught how to effectively compare these strategies to come to a resolution and debating seems to be the only skill which can be equipped to teach this. Teaching debating is essential for the future of our generation.
