Having private debates on a public debating forum does seem to be a contradiction in terms.

Unless you are having a one on one debate.

It could also be argued that this is not a public site, but a public/private site, seeing it allows for private debates.

Insofar that, after the standard online preliminaries,'The Public' have free and open access to this site it can legally be deemed to be a public forum.

In the same way a fee is charged for most PUBLIC car parks they are nevertheless classified as PUBLIC.

This is not the forum to engage in restrictive one to one debates.

On the contrary, this type of webinar is primarily designed to be a platform for a wide scope of differing opinions on a broad range of topics, just as we're doing now.

In my opinion those utilizing this 'one-on-one' facility are pretentious twits as private opinions can be exchanged on the site's member to member email arrangement.

Socialism is a range of economic and social systems characterised by social ownership of the means of production and workers' self-management,[10] as well as the political theories and movements associated with them.[11] Social ownership can be public, collective or cooperative ownership, or citizen ownership of equity.[12] There are many varieties of socialism and there is no single definition encapsulating all of them,[13] with social ownership being the common element shared by its various forms.[5][14][15]
