Topics should not focus on particular legal arguments or require any specialized knowledge. They should not require that the participants be extremely closely acquainted with current events or with obscure historical events. The following are examples of good topics:
Resolved: Use of the draft is just in time of war.Resolved: The atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki was morally acceptable.Resolved: Hate speech ought not to be legally protected free speech.
Debates are intended to spark organic (and often wide ranging) discussion and so some lack of precision in the wording of resolutions is permissible.
