Debate is the activity that brings the art of reading, thinking and speaking together in one place. When medieval scholars set out to establish the curriculum of the world’s first universities, they considered three liberal arts essential for leadership and promotion of the best ideas: grammar, logic, and rhetoric (reading, thinking, and speaking). When they sought to test the depth to which these skills had sunk in, medieval faculty demanded students participate not in exams or papers, but in disputations—in other words, debates. Although much has changed in the world since the 19th century, scholars laid out these basic elements of the artium baccalaureus degree. The ability to conceive, articulate, and evaluate arguments remains not only the lifeblood of democracy and society, but essential to the development of an engaged and ethical individual living in contemporary technological democratic society.
What is The Truth Debate?
When many of us are trying to share our opinions online, instead of being a way to express ourselves, they become something like a competition of who’s right or who’s wrong. We should always try to have a healthy dialogue if we want to prove our point. The Truth Debate is an application that gives us a chance to express our opinions with videos in order to discuss our views and beliefs while learning about others’ perspective on the same things. Regardless of whether you support the president or can’t stand him, are liberal or conservative, are pro-life or pro-choice, support immigration or don’t, we must respect each others’ opinions.
The Truth Debate is an amazing application that you can use daily as a coping mechanism and get your thoughts out to the world. We select our views from how we are raised, our environment, and a variety of other factors. Whatever you choose to believe is fine because that is what this nation is based on: the ability to have your own views and fight for what you believe in. Yet, for some reason we have started to attack each other as people rather than fighting for our views. If you believe something, use The Truth Debate and speak your mind and try to explain to others why you believe what you do. It is okay to disagree with other’s views as long as you respect them. You can get it for free from the App Store!
