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.

Pick topics that are politically correct and cater to confirmation bias. Things like global warming is caused by man or gay marriage should be legal drugs should be legal. Almost impossible to lose those debates. It doesn't matter if you agree with it just post a bunch of sources that confirm it and that's pretty much it.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

What Sadolite said is true. Those aren't things that should concern you or you should even consider when starting a debate.

Make sure you give lots of thought to the resolution so that you can ensure you get the debate you want. You also want to make sure the resolution is fair to both you, and your opponent.

Whether you win or lose make sure you're paying attention to the criticism you get from the voters. Argue with the voters in mind ad actually take criticism from your opponent and the voters seriously.

G+ hangouts dude. Learn YOUR manga.
Works if one's being recorded and broadcasted as well, remember? :P

Just post a vid at the end, with him using his Geass to force everyone to vote in his favour.

You two don't seem to realise that Geass are just a dressing up of natural abilities and how they come about - by conditioning. It's kinda like in Harry Potter with all that "the wand chooses the wizard" sh*t, only it's more in-depth. Rolo Lamperouge's Geass, then, for a clearly illustrative example, is analogous to a little boy crying to make everyone stop fighting.

A geass is manifested by ones inner desire, and each geass varies depending on a users personality. Leleocuhe desired the ability to manipulate and control people to gain power, so thus his ability was manifested. It was foreshadowed during the chest game at the start of the show, that specific geas however requires direct eye contact.

Mikal breaks out the learnedness. I have Lelouch's power, though, and I can do it without eye contact.

In the episode where Mao kidnapped Nunally, Lulu used his Geass on HIMSELF by looking in a mirror. :p

Fine, The OP doesn't need Geass.

Just get mindcontrol powers.

I had a thing with a sexy but quiet girl before who I got to tell me her secret shame of always practising porn shoots in front of the mirror, lol. Same thing - control. Psyching herself up. Mine's my fighting face, but we all do it (have done it). Man, I love that show lol.

What you need to win debates is to be on the right side of the argument (to be popularly insane maybe, which isn't hard) and maybe have some sliver of intelligence too to know what argument for that side goes where. It's basically herding sheep and those sheep know the lengths of stick they're going to get hit with and how much they hurt and so they move whatever which way depending on what lengths of stick are where. New arguments don't cut it. Third positions don't cut it. Debate is numbers. Funny isn't it? And then you get the likes of Hitler who come along and catch a fresh insanity that's about to burst out of the old, and THAT'S a Geass power. And then DDO might f*ck you up too, what with how it's kinda not too representative of the real world and so might lend you a false sense of security... Forums are the home of the dysfunctional dudes, lol. But I do make great posts.

And then Mikal gets all high up in the leaderboard and he's showing off his abs and posting debates in the Debate.org section like, "You guys want to look at me, don't you?" being all sexy and sh*t lol... But deep down he hates you all, even though he's putting on that show. Dude's about to have a Britney Spears-tier breakdown lmao. And you're dead right too Mikal, don't worry dude. The blond hair is nice though :(
