CreateDebate is a social debate community built around ideas, discussion and democracy.
If this is your first time checking out a debate, here are some quick tips to help get you started:
Arguments with the highest score are displayed first.
Argument replies (both in favor and in opposition) are displayed below the original argument.
To follow along, you may find it helpful to show and hide the replies displayed below each argument.
To vote for an argument, use these icons:
You have the power to cast exactly one vote (either up or down) for each argument.
Once you vote, the icon will become grayed out and the argument's score will change.
Yes, you can change your vote.
Debate scores, side scores and tag scores are automatically calculated by an algorithm that primarily takes argument scores into account.
All scores are updated in real-time.
To learn more about the CreateDebate scoring system, check out the FAQ.
When you are ready to voice your opinion, use the Add Argument button to create an argument.
If you would like to address an existing argument, use the Support and Dispute link within that argument to create a new reply.
When providing a public platform, especially one which is known to have a significant political influence, it is essential that such a medium is responsibly well balanced and offers the partisans and disciples of all shades of political and religious opinion equal opportunity to express their views.
If the controlling body of any giant and powerful social medium is politically biased towards one particular political ideology then this partiality should be openly declared along with an honest proclamation that opposing views will either be misleadingly revised to show favor towards the editor's opinion, or denied publication altogether.
Whilst many will object to any dominant medium having prejudiced political preferences this type of open and honest transparency will be respected, or at least should be respected by all reasonable people and let everyone know where they stand.
Such professional conduct represents the acceptable face of capitalist free enterprise.
Any form of concealed propaganda is usually in the domain of, and bears all the hallmarks of the leftist woks.

Of course it should. The question is, will it, without being forced?
I'm all for free enterprise. What should pop into your brain is that your party wants to censor anyone who disagrees with them. The right doesn't want or need you censored. When your ideas make sense & can easily be defended, & you aren't a raging control freak, you don't need to censor anyone. Totalitarians & people with indefensable ideas need to censor others.
if Twitter was my property, I'm the guy, the ONLY guy, who decides what speech goes on my property and what doesn't.
ABC is private property owned by someone. They are still subject to laws concerning politics, in kind campaign contributions, and equal time given to candidates. If CNN or Fox News gives time to Donald Trump or Joe Biden, they are required by law to do the same for the other candidate. Twitter has blocked comments and even accounts of politicians during elections which clearly violates this statute.
"The equal-time rule specifies that American radio and media must provide an equivalent opportunity to any opposing political candidates who request it. This means, for example, that if a station gives a given amount of time to a candidate in prime time, it must do the same for another candidate who requests it, at the same price if applicable."
Twitter calls itself media, not me. Twitter decides what media is and is not on their platform and sells political ad space, which makes them a publisher just like a newspaper. When the platform is officially sold, you will pivot to that exact argument, but I will ignore you, holding you to your prior principal. If the left had lost Twitter and didn't make a peep, I'd be fine with your resolution. Where the left loses me is that they took your position for years, Musk bought Twitter, and now they claim Twitter is a threat to free speech, and billionaires should not have this much power, etc. Nah. It's a private company. Fu*k em.
Excon, no one on this forum (including me) believes anything that you say. in order to be a pilot you must be judged as mentally stable. You call yourself the "Jewish Prince", what SANE person would claim that?!? The truth is that you're just an internet TROLL that most likely still lives in his mothers basement.
Excon, of course you are free to blabber your worthless, rambling, nonsense. No one here is arguing that (especially on this website) that does not have a moderator.
Yo are a TROLL simply by the fact that you have NEVER offered anything constructive or thought provoking. Your only game around here is to irritate people and dodge legitimate debate. The fact that you've posted 16,765 times is further OUTRIGHT PROOF that you are a complete and utter LOSER.
You are a trolling hypocrite. I saw you slandering me and you know what? Sooner or later, you will be caught and you will be convicted. You deserve nothing less. I am with Developing here. He is right.
