Hey all, this is probably going to be my last post on this blog, so I figured it was a good idea to reflect on it overall. I’m going to leave it online so it can become a permanent part of the depths of the internet, but here are a few last thoughts and what I hope you were able to take out of this blog–
1. Debate is awesome in every way and form– it’s educational, it’s fun, and it’s important for our democracy. You should participate in it if possible.
2. The world needs more debates and debaters– there are too many instances of uninformed people not understanding the facts or a given situation. Debates and debaters are able to convey these facts and situations in an effective, easy manner that helps people understand what’s even going on in the world. If you can, support a local debate team in order to help it grow.
3. Debates are good, fights are not– stay calm and collected and stick to the facts when debating and understand that even if someone doesn’t agree with you, that person probably has something kind of smart to say. It’s never a good idea to loose your cool and always a good idea to keep yourself focused.
Thanks so much for reading this blog. I hope it was as enjoyable and educational for you as it was for me.
