I admit I don't care for debate much. Formal structure. Most often its an excuse to argue. Perspectives get shared and argued, but conclusions rarely get reached. Loaded with rhetoric. Who decides the winner? Hopefully someone who understands the issue better then the people debating. Well, I'd rather just listen to that guy. But discussing some issues is better then dicking around.

I'm pretty doubtful about this turning into much of anything.

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!



4. True members have avatars.

Do they...? Well, true members also have more than 38 CR points last I checked... :p

Anywho:

I don’t care to have a list of people who are -not- interested. For my organizations sake, people who don’t want to join, I ask you to please stay out of this topic. Not ordering, because your free to do whatever you like, but I would be very much obliged.

Jam: I was actually hoping you would join, and not only that, but also help me to organize this. Maybe like a partner or something? I don’t know, in truth I’m still ambivalent about any of the details in this. Again, as of yet, this is just an idea. I advertised it to see how many people would be interested!

Okay, for those of you who posted your interest, (other than you Jam, cuz I already know your style, and maturity level and am more than happy to have you) I would now like you to message me with an expository essay on the following quote:

“America is important now, but will we be in a few centuries, and where is the center of American society?”

It was the quote I had to right an essay on in my recent Ready Writing contest. I know what I put, but now I am interested to see what other people put. Note, I -this- is not a writing contest. In fact, it’s not a contest at all. Keep it short, and don’t try and be a novelist if you don’t want. I would like it if you could keep my interest, but I wont count you off for a lack of vocabulary.

Erm, since I myself am only so informed I would like to make another request of you Jam. If you would allow me to send you copies of these essays (or just have people send you a copy as well) and tell me how you feel about it I would place great value in your opinion.

Anyway, I g2g for now. So, people, please pay attention to this thread in the near future and I’ll get back to you.

Signed, Seraph!

I don't think an essay is necessarily what we need though Seraph. I just think anyone who is really interested should send in an example of some writing piece they did with legitimate sources and links. The whole essay idea would be poorly received because most people are lazy and become disinterested very quickly.

I think more like send in something that shows you don't type like "lawls w00t." Maybe a previous forum post or something to show their general intelligence? Remember you don't want to discourage people by making them write an essay but I love reading them. I'm always ready to learn.

Mass debating is too chaotic and stupid. Maybe a debate a day where a topic is chosen ahead of time. We're not here to out voice someone with mass debating. Civil order is always needed first.

No, you like the idea of supporting CR. If you really wanted to support CR, you'd actually be a "supporter" with a little star next to your name. Their are plenty of options for minors to send money now, and I refuse to beleive that the vast majority of users here under 18 can't afford 6 bucks a month. You can't have life to bad if you have access to a computer and internet access. I understand not being a supporter if you're still checking the site out and all that, but at a certain point you're just a cheap leach - end of story.

I'm not sure how a "debate team" would really support the site. Advertise for it? I really don't think lack of traffic is a problem around here.

Anyone who would actually be qualified for such an endeavour would first, know better than to get involved with it, and second, most likely not have the time to commit to it in the first place.

Azrael the minumum for cr mail is $15. Not that that matters but yeah we had this discussion anyway. I'm getting there but I need to save money for my Cancer Society group and all...

Basically the topic is two fold but I don't quite get the connection between them.
1. America currently has a large role in global affairs, but will this continue in the near future?
2. Where is the center of American society?

I don't know how to paraphrase the second one really except is what does American society revolve around? I may be getting the wrong impression though.
