Are you on the right side of America's moral divide? Tonight, in our season finale, we bring four leading political thinkers to the stage to debate one of the nation’s longest-standing and most divisive topics: political morality. Have liberals, with their emphasis on social justice and caring for poor, disadvantaged, and marginalized, cornered the market on morality? Or do ideals such as patriotism, fairness and liberty, and reverence for the sanctity of religious and moral tradition put...

With any new presidency and shift in administration, particularly when there is a transition in ideology, we tend to expect some change in foreign policy priorities. And the U.S.-Saudi relationship has been a priority for nearly 70 years now, with cooperation on everything from military intelligence to oil. But as many critics will be quick to point out, this might be one relationship that we should treat with a little less benevolence, recognizing the strains caused by the 9/11 attacks,...

Only twelve days into his presidency, Donald Trump has announced executive orders and appointments at a rip-roaring pace, sparking protests, potential trade wars, and outrage from some, while others feel vindicated he's living up to his campaign promises. But others, including critics, argue that Trump’s election represents the will of the American people, who--hungry for change--repudiated the status quo. In their view, we must find areas of common ground to work together, because...

Do you have a secret? What about Apple, Google, Facebook, Verizon, or Uber? Are you sure they don't know your secret? Digital data – emails, text messages, phone records, location records, web searches – contain traces of almost every secret. They also contain traces of almost every crime. Tech companies may promise to protect our data from prying eyes. But should that promise yield to law enforcement and national security? Tonight we put these points to the test, in partnership with the...

College sports is a big-money business, with football and basketball programs generating millions of dollars in revenue every year. While coaches and athletic directors in Division I programs routinely score seven-figure contracts, student-athletes are currently prohibited from sharing in the profits. Is it time to rewrite the rules in college sports and allow athletes their fair share of the profits? Or would providing monetary incentives -- above and beyond existing scholarships and career...

Are you on the right side of America's moral divide? Tonight, in our season finale, we bring four leading political thinkers to the stage to debate one of the nation’s longest-standing and most divisive topics: political morality. Have liberals, with their emphasis on social justice and caring for poor, disadvantaged, and marginalized, cornered the market on morality? Or do ideals such as patriotism, fairness and liberty, and reverence for the sanctity of religious and moral tradition put...

Senator Jeff Sessions’ controversial attorney general nomination comes amidst increased demand for racial justice in policing, fueled by the highly publicized deaths of black men at the hands of police. But there are some who say that protests following these deaths have fed a narrative of biased policing that the data does not back up. What are the statistics, and how should we interpret them? We’re in New York City, home to the largest police force in the nation, debating the motion:...

This debate short is part of a series co-produced by Intelligence Squared U.S. and Newsy. President Donald Trump entered the Oval Office with historically low approval ratings. Some argue his actions on the campaign trail and during his first few days in the Oval Office are enough to know whether to give him a chance. Despite their differing political leanings, columnist and attorney Gayle Trotter and Bloomberg View columnist Clive Crook teamed up to argue for the motion. Former George W. Bush...

On April 6th, 1917, Congress declared war on Germany, thrusting the United States into the Great War. It wasn’t until December 7th of that same year that Congress would declare war on Austria-Hungary. Between 1914 and 1918 six continents were involved in the "War to End All Wars." In this time, technological advancements were being made at a record-breaking pace. The WWI Museum and Memorial in Kansas City, Missouri shows many of the advances made in this period alongside the human...

With Betsy DeVos as education secretary, the charter school debate has reached a zenith. Hoisting a 25-year track record, charter school proponents argue that their independence, strict academic expectations, and high graduation rates are proof of their success - and increasing enrollment numbers only back this up further. But with education dollars being precious, opponents argue that these schools take away much-needed resources from public schools, and don't deliver the results they claim...
