WELCOME TO LINCOLN-DOUGLAS DEBATE
LD is a one-on-one debate focused on philosophy and ethics. Lincoln-Douglas is unique in the sense that it is usually the most "tech"-focused debate; it's the best to develop pure argumentative skill because it places a lot of emphasis on philosophical analysis, evidence comparison, logical justifications for arguments and multiple other skills. We'd highly encourage anyone who wants to focus on learning how to generate responses, logically justify their arguments, or get better at critical thinking in general to do LD. There is a new topic every 2 months, so you get a lot of time to prepare. :)
