Re: TDL II: SECOND WAVE - THE CARD
I was in far over my head with the economics question. I couldn't think of any way to include info about both China's current economic situation and relevant bits about Chinese society in 800 words or less so I just gave up, chopped out entire paragraphs and submitted whatever was left.
I'm the least financially inclined person alive and arguing pro or con a topic I lack any depth of knowledge on, and don't care enough to educate myself about, was a chore – though I guess formulating rational arguments about a range of topics, including ones you may find challenging, is what a solid debater does.
That's one reason I'm curious to see SPCDRI's submission since I'm sure he understands loads more about the subject than I do – or, if he didn't before, does now. I consider the topic we were given the type to separate the real debaters from the posers. Good work by the TDL folks!
