    Why the hell would I want a child of mjne exposed to the demonic idea of debate? They've already been taught Right and Wrong by ME. There is no need for debate.

    Because I only want the answer, not how anyone got to the answer. And frankly, how anyone else here chooses to deal with their kids, spouses, bosses and subordinates is their business and I have nothing to say about that and I'm not going to countenance them having something to say about how I handle my interactions of that nature; thus why is irrelevant. If one shares it, well, they do, but I have nothing to say about it.

    If I had kids I would encourage them to study such things as debate and argumentation, from an academic standpoint,

    in the event that someday when they're older and have no life and they end up wasting time in a place like this at least they'd be able to recognize the bullshit when they see it.
