The one way to win any debate

Side {1} one is bound to the following rules
[1] speak the truth as you truly know it to be.
[2] respect other views with integrity.

Side {2} two ignores the above
[1] lie knowing you are lying
[2] deflect the truth by conjuring up untruths proclaiming them to be true

Please tell me, in your own words---- which side will win the debate & why--?

Thanks in advance :)-

Side {2} also censors all opposition.

Both Liberals and Conservatives have major flaws -- I am on Side 3 which is one of many barely noticeable sides. Liberals are more Totalitarian.

No silly

1. Protest for "rights" and for tolerance and debate respectfully.

2. Use the tolerance and rights attained to infiltrate all organizations within society, such as media, education, etc.

3. Once infiltrated, use such organizations for propaganda

4. Once, power is gained, silence all opposition that counters your propaganda and end tolerance for all other viewpoints by shouting them down and censoring them.

5. Do a "superior" dance, Church Lady style

How about just speaking the actual truth, instead? Fantasies are still fantasies, no matter how firmly they are held.

Your being raised in an Islamist setting does not make your firmly-held antisemitic beliefs the truth. It just means you believe them.

The only way to "win" a debate is if you're getting something out of it.

I debate to keep my brain going, to try and get as close to the truth as possible. Other people might have different reasons for debating. Most don't even bother with debate.

If you see debate as a duel, the only way to "win" is if the other person capitulates. But for me, based on my own experience of having been stubborn, sometimes you talk to someone, they reject what you say, but years later it clicks in their head.
