Debate.org is the premier online community where intelligent minds from around the world come to debate online and read the opinions of others. To encourage discussion we have built our website around these core features:
A non-partisan, non-profit organization, Intelligence Squared U.S. addresses a fundamental problem in America: the extreme polarization of our nation and our politics. Over 140 topics covered.
Our mission is to restore critical thinking, facts, reason, and civility to American public discourse.
By elevating a diversity of voices, forging common ground and improving dialogue and collaboration among leaders and communities, Public Agenda fuels progress on critical issues, including education, health care and community engagement.
CQ Researcher provides in-depth coverage of the most important issues of the day. Full-length articles include an overview, historical background, chronology, pro/con feature, plus resources for additional research. Graphics, photos and short "sidebar" features round out the reports. Shorter "Hot Topics" articles provide a solid introduction to subjects most in demand by students.
