I was thinking about starting up a Crunchy Roll debate team… I don’t mean to haze people, but I’ve been avoiding political threads because the mass of childish arguments that are started up within them. (Amongst other reasons.) Still, there are a few intellectuals on here who I quite enjoy to debate with. So, was thinking I might start up a debate team with some of these people, and some other interested individuals…

I suppose what we will do is find an outside source where we can hold private debates in a more organized fashion than is available here. I’m not sure where, but hopefully somebody who joins might have suggestions. So far this is just a idea, or aspiration, a short term dream if you will. However, I think that it is a good way to gather educated and intelligent people together and create a mentally and morally challenging outlet.

One that requires and encourages people to think about things, to question their own views. I’m not going to try and convert anyone from their religious beliefs, but religion will likely be a topic that come along eventually. So, if you are not comfortable with such topics do not get involved. Also, I’m not going to censor anyone. Although I hope anyone who joins will be mature enough to use prudent and respectful terminology and treat others in an dignified manor….

So far I can only think of a few requirements, and I have not decided how I will run everything. That mostly depends on where our external outlet can be found. Here, however, are the necessary qualifications:

1. I want to support Crunchyroll, so you must at least have an account on the website to join.

2. You must have at least decent grammar, and a slight understanding of at least a few political topics.

3. You must be willing to actually look into topics. You must study!

Post here if you want to join. If you have further questions, or suggestions (I’m more than just open to them) message me!

I was in the debate team in High School....ah memories. NOT!

Debating leads to violence in my experience.
Sometimes people tend to over-react to certain topics such as abortions and creationist vs evolution etc etc

Well i don't really into debate. I remembered once selected into a debate team in my class and I end up just sit there and look at them like a stupid guy.

I'd join only if the topics are serious. I don't want no Chidori vs Rasengan debates.

Quite honestly, Seraph I don't think you should have advertised this. There's only a few people who I see consistent helpful posts when debating. Actually I can count them off of my fingers.

I sound like such an ass right now, but it's the truth.

Wow... Debate.. I remember joining that in my freshman year of high school.. It was really intense. Some people from our team made other people cry with their debates.

I might be interested... After seeing the topics, however. :p
