3 Topics For Fun DebatesThere are a lot of fun things to debate about! It can be fun to debate anything you want, for any topic, however, there are a few topics that are guaranteed to get your heated up and go for the kill. If you are new to debating, some of these topics may come as a surprise to you, but they will eventually become your favorite. Here is what you can debate.
College Athlete: A college athlete has a very different mindset than a non-athlete. A college athlete is used to being praised for all his hard work, is constantly told he's a great leader and is often viewed as a role model. While these traits are admirable in a college athlete, many non-athletes tend to view a college athlete as entitled and not able to handle disappointment, even when it's warranted.
Even though a college athlete may come across as an arrogant jerk when things go wrong, sometimes the opposite is true. In sports, at least, a good number of players get frustrated and have a hard time accepting their failure, but few feel they've ever been in a situation where they should have succeeded.
Debate about this: Are you an arrogant jerk? Do you take everything in stride, even if it doesn't go your way? Is this possible for you or is it something you need to address?
Health Care: When it comes to health care, there are certain debates that will not only make your audience more interested, but will help them to better understand your position. Let's say you are discussing health care, there is a whole host of issues that can go into this debate. Let's discuss a few, shall we?
Cost - Do you support a government-run, single-payer system? Do you support the type of healthcare system that you currently have, or do you think a private plan is the best solution? Health care costs always go up, which can make a popular conservative viewpoint to oppose a plan that will save the taxpayer money in the long run.
The National Debt - While this is a little bit of a general topic, let's talk about a few ways it can be addressed, especially as far as whether or not you would prefer to keep the current policy or get a similar policy with less coverage, while getting a better deal. You might also consider whether or not one's current health care policy is still needed after a series of health concerns.
