Debate thread: 2d33 - Should Twitter ban Trump?
Please feel free to add your opinion and arguments here, we'd love to hear from you!

Twitter is Trump's channel of choice when it comes to direct communication with his voters. Arguable his tweets often are controversial and many of them are in violence to Twitter's own terms of service. So the question therefor is: Should twitter act and ban Trump from using its service or is it in fact right by keeping his account online?

I wish I would have known this podcast episode before I sent yesterday's newsletter (see it here: http://mailchi.mp/12d864f43dc7/2d30-want-to-live-forever…)... Sam Harris discusses with David Benatar if life is actually worth living https://www.samharris.org/…/i…/is-life-actually-worth-living This is a quite interesting (albeit depressing) philosophical conversation.

In this episode of the Waking Up podcast, Sam Harris speaks with David Benatar about his philosophy of “anti-natalism.” They discuss the asymmetry between the good and bad things in life, the ethics of existential risk, the moral…

Debating thread: Virtually every aspect of our lives is about avoiding death and billions are spent to find ways to extend it or maybe even turn us into immortals. But should we really desire that?

Debate thread: When Great Britain voted for leaving the EU, all other member states stared at the vote in disbelief. Can they do that? It turns out that the EU has been designed in a way that allows for a divorce. The question then is - should the EU try to make an example of UK in order to avoid other states following the example or is it in our interest to ensure an as friendly exit as possible?

Star Wars is one of the most valuable franchises of the movie industry and is a story still living on today. But at closer look - is it actually really worth it?

Debating Thread: Are boycotts an effective form of protest?

Some claim there are more failed boycotts than successful ones. So, should we conclude then that boycotts do not work? Thanks to John Kwesi “Wabbit” Hankins, aka @thekrazywabbit and founder of the PodWabbit Podcast Network for suggesting this motion!
