And let's reword it as "good and bad debate"
It's more rare than it should be that two or more parties are actively trying to debate the same issue, but we have had in recent memory what are earnest, sometimes fruitful debates on natural rights
and gun control
Contrast these good-faith discussions against this thread,
which despite pan-political consensus on basic facts and basic arithmetic, dragged on and on as a gruesome spectacle of senseless intransigence. Reminding me of the heroin thread of yore.
