any issue worth debating is worth avoiding altogether.

I used to do inter-school debating but gave up when I realised that to a large extent it's just a popularity contest.
I also don't like the restrictions (e.g. you have to stop talking after 3 minutes, even if you're mid-sentence).
But these were some of the motions I did:
"This house believes that GM crops should be illegal" (opposed)
"T.H.B.T. poetry is the only form of writing that can truly express emotion" (opposed)
"T.H.B.T. a benevolent dictatorship is preferable to democracy" (proposed)
"This house would ban vivisection" (opposed)
"T.H.B.T. religion should be abolished" (opposed)

Helped with a couple my school was in.olved with I think one of them was called the MACE debating competition and another was to do with the Ministry (? might be something else) of Ideas. I also ran my school debating society until I went on study leave.

I live in Ireland and did what are called the Concern debates run by the ngo concern motions include;

Overseas aid is bypassing th epoor in the developing world,

GM food is unnecessary in the fight against world hunger,

The west is committed to defeating aids globally,

the motions were quite difficult because if you didnt have the politically correct side of the motion then it was harder to win.

I did a few debates in year 10. One time I proposed the motion that "computer and video games are having a negative impact on young people" (or something along those lines).
