Hello! Would anyone be interested in participating in a debate with me via skype, or some other method to record audio and video? Ideally I'm looking for someone who will take the statist position on any topic (I will take the libertarian point of view, i.e. you are in favour of war on drugs, universal health care, public education, basically you are in favour of anything the government is doing what so ever and I'm against that) but I am flexible and wouldn't mind doing pro / con of any topic really. I will record this debate and post it on youtube (unless the participant requests I don't post it in which case I will delete it and try again!)

I think we may be facing a problem of mis-communication here. I do want to debate you via skype! That's why I included my skype information (zak.young1) so you could add me and we can begin!

The awkward moment when both lannan and zak realise they are both seeking a young boy but only find who see every time the lok in the mirror.

That was uncalled for, especialy after Zek caught you ..... I'm not going there.

I'll be happy to defend statism, if we can do it without video (as it lags my computer to a state of inability.

Saturday would be good for you?

A Skype debate eh? Would you record it? Because I don't think I could. But this is something that might interest me.

Just do it on Google+ Hangouts, that way you can record it easily and it's already in a YouTube video. Then you can post it in this thread.

Sure. Also, Google hangouts may be a good idea.

i agree wallstreetatheist and steve hawkings : google hangouts is where it should go down.

franz : do you have a topic you'd like to do it on? can you please pick a time and date that best suits you? so long as I am awake all times are fine with me. if you'd like we can take some time to prepare or just go whenever.

I'd be happy to go right now by the way. Anytime during the day on weekdays works best (I have a kind of reversed working schedule), which given the timezone I live in is mostly not during working hours everywhere else.

You want me to do my strongest topic? Alright, I'll affirm that New Zealand should build a second internet cable.

I thought the innovation point was a good one. Was annoyed at myself that I didn't get around to addressing it. Anyway.

Apparently the video is here:

Youtube still thinks it's live for some reason rather than publishing it. Anyone know how to fix that?

likewise i completely failed to address the topic of public goods. a potential idea for future debates - although went well - would be to exchange some arguments pro and con will be using in advance to prepare rebuttal and polish the arguments up a bit. although it's good when people are caught off guard too.
