You may have seen my recent post on my
/study page, where I updated all the links and formatting.
Well, I need to do the same with
/arguments, and there I am mostly in need of content. So I’m asking all of you for help.
As you can see from the main page I am focused on collecting arguments, such as why the death penalty should be abolished, or why the rich should pay more or less in taxes. The list of arguments themselves is content that I need.
Then, most importantly, I need good arguments for them. This means a few main things:
- Structured: I want these to read like well-put-together essays
- Concise (as possible): I’m thinking from a few paragraphs to a few pages, tops
- Evidence supported: back all claims with research, citations, polls, etc. This is not the place to be sloppy
Those are reminders for me as well; I’ve been known to break all three of those rules, and the
/arguments page is not the place for it.
So that’s the request: help me create or collect some good content for this. Remember that there are many who write better than I do, and we can use other arguments as well. We’ll put them out as bullet points and give links to the full arguments at their sources in those cases.
For subjects where there’s already a ton of good, concise content in the style that I prefer, we’ll basically be summarizing and linking to those pieces. Where the content elsewhere is too dense I (we) will be making our own trimmed versions of all the arguments together.
So, please raise a hand and volunteer. I know tons of you out there will be very good at this. Thanks.
