Above is a link to a website called "Intelligence Squared". It is a website with video, audio and transcripts of past debates held in New York according to Oxford-style debating rules. The link is to the U.S. website. There is also a UK website but it requires a paid subscription. The U.S. website is free. I have watched a few of the debates and they are interesting and informative. Some past topics have included:

- U.S. Airports Should Use Racial and Religious Profiling
- Islam is a Religion of Peace
- Don't blame teachers unions for our failing schools
- The U.S. should step back from its special relationship with Israel
- Guns reduce crime
- It's time to end affirmative action
- Global warming is not a crisis

Take a look when you have some time.

Watched the first on your list last night. Interesting. I agreed with the winning outcome too.
