debating - quotes and descriptions to inspire creative writing
It's time to de-bait the debates, to really listen and love as one functional national family. In wisdom, with compassion and logic, with a sense of fraternity, we step forwards together. There will be compromise, yet with that comes the promise of peace, a real chance for a thriving and sustainable society.
HI! So lovely to see you, you're just in time! The debate teams are just warming up. Today they must focus on the concepts of their beliefs rather than the words and definitions. Here goes!
Chris: "Right, well, the divine spirit is love!"
***Honk. Whack whack opps.***
- "Sorry, Chris, once you use words it isn't a concept anymore, rather like words can't be a table. Try again."
Chris get's up, looks confused, then gives everyone a hug.
- Ping! Well done Chris, now you're getting it!
Raj: ***says nothing*** Get's up and hands out some food.
- Ping! Exellent, that's wonderful, anyone else?
Aalam - ***says nothing*** gets up and fetches people glasses of water.
OK! There you have it, the debate team are unable to argue, now that's a first. Now we must look at their actions and decide who wins!!
Wow, turns out at the concept level there's nothing to fight about after all. How dull! If we carry on like this we'd have peace! Oh no, where is the drama in that?
Wow! You're back again, great! Now we can start. The debate team wanted to try the concepts of different faiths debate again and so this time they are allowed to bring a silent movie that shows what they believe in. Now, this will be fun! Let's see the bloodshed and war, that always makes a great movie!
***three hours later***
Yawn. Three hours of hugging, laughing, helping people and being nice. I'm gonna puke. No wonder we don't have debates like that. Even the humanitarian atheists didn't cause a ruckus!
Well, come back next week, we'll have some high tension drama to keep you in your seats for those all important adverts!
