Aloha!

In hosting many tournaments over my time on DDO, I am accustomed to a variety of complaints and questions that arise during that process. However, one of the biggest refrains that I hear is "I can't think of any topic I want to debate." Well, the Open Debate Topics Project is an effort to solve that problem.

The ODTP is an effort to create a database of topics that debaters can reference, choose from, and riff off of, in their efforts to find a good resolution to debate. Sick of all the hackneyed, big issue debates? The ODTP will include mostly topics not related to the big issues. I want to encourage users to debate things that are a bit more interesting than, for instance, abortion, which has been done dozens of times on this website alone.

The idea behind the ODTP is that users will actively contribute topics to the list. If you think of a good topic, or even just a vague idea of a topic, you can PM me and we can discuss whether it should be included on this list. I will vet all topics for balance, but I also want to include as many suggestions as possible, so that this list can grow, and so that it doesn't become just as stale as the big issues.

I would also ask, that if you use topics from this list, that you credit it, so that the word can be spread about its existence. I really would like this to become a well-used site resource.

I was inspired to do this list when I realized that people were pulling topics ideas from my Unique Tournament's topic list, and I thought about just growing the idea a bit more. I hope this list helps people, and diversifies the subjects of debates a bit. With any luck, this will be a successful venture. Thank you!

Here is the link to the list and the topics I have so far: https://docs.google.com...

This is fvcking amazing. I would suggest making the doc comment only, so that its much easier to add topics but you also get to vet them. So I can "suggest" to add X topic, you get a notification, vet it, and add/remove it based on how good it is. WOuld be much easier

How about an art section?

Some suggestions

1. The Louvre is better than the Uffizi
2. The Mona Lisa isn't the best piece of artwork in the world
3. Music isn't Art
4. Schools should ban from teaching art
5. Singing and poetry isn't Art
6. (a museum) v.s. (another museum)

And Bob chose abortion in the debate, when I told over 10 times to do a different topic (sigh)

Like Leonardo Da Vinci v.s. Michelangelo? Good idea.

Where's the stuff about economics?

Underlying most arguments against the free market is a lack of belief in freedom itself. -Friedman

However, one of the biggest refrains that I hear is "I can't think of any topic I want to debate." Well, the Open Debate Topics Project is an effort to solve that problem.

The ODTP is an effort to create a database of topics that debaters can reference, choose from, and riff off of, in their efforts to find a good resolution to debate. Sick of all the hackneyed, big issue debates? The ODTP will include mostly topics not related to the big issues.

The idea behind the ODTP is that users will actively contribute topics to the list. If you think of a good topic, or even just a vague idea of a topic, you can PM me and we can discuss whether it should be included on this list. I will vet all topics for balance, but I also want to include as many suggestions as possible, so that this list can grow, and so that it doesn't become just as stale as the big issues.

I would also ask, that if you use topics from this list, that you credit it, so that the word can be spread about its existence. I really would like this to become a well-used site resource.

I was inspired to do this list when I realized that people were pulling topics ideas from my Unique Tournament's topic list, and I thought about just growing the idea a bit more. I hope this list helps people, and diversifies the subjects of debates a bit. With any luck, this will be a successful venture. Thank you!

1. Economics

Here's a couple of suggestions:
1. Supply-side economics is more effective at solving a recession than Keynesian fiscal policy.
2. Capitalism is the best economic system.
3. The debt ceiling should not have been raised.
4. The Federal Reserve ought to raise interest rates.
5. Yellen's decision to raise rates in December (2015) was in the best interest of the US economy.
6. The USFG should extend unemployment benefits.

Hopefully that will suffice for now. :)
