I do wonder if that's real. Surely not.

But Peter Schiff? I don't think he'd be a bullshitter to the degree of making something like that up knowingly.

I think that the title “Debate -American Style” is a misnomer.
The debate style witnessed in that video is applicable to a subset of Americans.

I wonder how their “style” :roll: would go over at the Oxford Union Society?

Apparently they do that because of the scoring system, if team A makes 3 points, and team B only counters 2 of them, team B loses.

So they are trying to make as many points as they can in the time. So ... idiotic rules lead to idiotic outcomes.
