Debates and Democracy
My two cents: The debates highlight what is wrong with America: Not enough intelligent debate! We practically live our entire lives without having real discussions with people who hold opposing views. As a result our positions on most issues are primitive and inflexible. The solution: Get people to start discussing! I have some thoughts on this (debate formats and moderator checks modelled after eBay) - more on that later.
