Re: How do you debate with other people?
I don't. Not in RL anyways, there's no point to it. Discussing tings with closer friends, families or partners, sure, but then I don't really do or say anything special because it's not about "winning". I wont say I don't unconsciously tailor my argument, though. But mulling it over, I think that is more about speaking to a common sense of reference.
On the internet I just write like I always write. I don't care whether the other guy is convinced, so I don't care to tailor it in any way. Usually I wont be bothered to reply back and forth extensively either.
Iíll make my report as if I told a story, for I was taught as a child on my homeworld that Truth is a matter of the imagination. The soundest fact may fail or prevail in the style of its telling: like that singular organic jewel of our seas, which grows brighter as one woman wears it and, worn by another, dulls and goes to dust.
