Big Debates is a battlefield of ideas that could crush your ideology in one intellectual bullet. Come along, fire the shots, take the hits, reflect, learn and laugh. Our aim is to facilitate meaningful and intelligent discussions. Whilst we are an ideas sharing platform, these ideas have no limits*. Controversial and provocative opinions are encouraged and challenged simultaneously.
We are not a group of friends that sit in a circle, softly share ideas and hand out flowers. We are a random mix of evolving identities that challenge and push each other out of our comfort zones.
All perspectives welcome. All nationalities welcome. All participation levels welcome (both front-line debaters and passive listeners). Advanced+ levels of English necessary. Anyone simply wanting to practise their English should go to Toastmasters.
*Given the politics of our host nation, we should refrain from criticising its governance.
*All debates are moderated by impartial (as much as humanly possible) moderators.
