Since it looks like my live debate tournament isn't going to happen, let's try something else. This is a Harry Potter tournament. The only rule: Each round must relate to some issue about Harry Potter. I'm opening it to only 8 people right now, but if there's more interest I'll increase the sign ups accordingly.

Sign ups:

1.
2.
3.
4.
5.
6.
7.
8.

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

This sounds like a fun tournament. I don't know what kind of topics you could come up with, though. Maybe:

1. Is Dumbledore gay?

2. Who would win in a battle between Gandalf and Dumbledore?

3. Which is the best way to travel: by flue powder, port key, disapparating, or flying on a broom stick?

4. Should Hagrid be allowed to do magic?

5. Is Mr. Olivander crazy?

6. Can Harry and Draco ever be friends?

7. Resolved: The Ministry of Magic should be abolished.

8. Resolved: Magic makes you lazy.

9. Resolved: The underage magic tracer is an unnecessary violation of privacy.

10. Resolved: If a muggle kills a witch, or a witch kills a muggle, they should not be tried in both a muggle court and a wizard court.

11. Rubber ducks have no function.

There is a lot of evidence suggesting Dumbledore <3 Snape

2. Who would win in a battle between Gandalf and Dumbledore?
They wouldn't fight. They'd sit by a table while drinking nice tea and playing wizard's chess. LOL yeah, so seriously, Dumbledore stands no chance. He is physically only human while Gandalf is like an angel.

3. Which is the best way to travel: by flue powder, port key, disapparating, or flying on a broom stick?
I suppose by Flue powder. Everything else is like ehhhhh arghhhh AHHHHHH

4. Should Hagrid be allowed to do magic?
surely!

5. Is Mr. Olivander crazy?
Maybe. "Although Ollivander is generally presented as a genial elderly man, Harry is unnerved both times he meets him in the series because the wandmaker appears to admire what Voldemort could do with his original wand and, later, the Elder Wand."... From the wikipedia page.

6. Can Harry and Draco ever be friends?
No.

7. Resolved: The Ministry of Magic should be abolished.
Why? I'm not too sure about this.

8. Resolved: Magic makes you lazy.
Indeed, although it makes your "voice training" not too shabby.

9. Resolved: The underage magic tracer is an unnecessary violation of privacy.
Sure it is.

10. Resolved: If a muggle kills a witch, or a witch kills a muggle, they should not be tried in both a muggle court and a wizard court.
It would be pretty weird.
If muggle kills witch:
Muggle court: yep, death penalty/life sentence, unless accidental man slaughter
Wizard Court: Let him go; he prob only did it for his own defense, and the court can tell him that not all witches/wizards are bad; only kill him off if he continues attempts, or he had malicious meaning to his killing

Witch kills muggle:
Muggle court: the witch would prob get away but if not death penalty/life sentence, unless the witch convinces people that in fact she was defending herself
Wizard court: Death penalty/life sentence, or something else if the circumstance is special.

11. Rubber ducks have no function.
In the wizard's world, certainly not. However they serve to entertain and pass time in the muggles' world.

12. Does Dumbledore <3 Snape or Grindelwald?

7. Resolved: The Ministry of Magic should be abolished.
Why? I'm not too sure about this.

They're a bit overbearing, and their justice system doesn't seem to work. Besides, what right do they have to exist and govern other witches and wizards? I don't get the impression it's very democratic.

10. Resolved: If a muggle kills a witch, or a witch kills a muggle, they should not be tried in both a muggle court and a wizard court.
It would be pretty weird.
