I love conversation. When I am chatting to someone about something we both care about. I used to love debate, but I am less and less fond of two people trying to find holes in each others arguments. Partly because I think we are so bad at expressing ourselves. If you look for holes, you will find them. First, you should look for what the person is saying, why they are saying it, and where you have common language. That is why I prefer conversation. It isn't about defeat. It is just two people, without fear, exploring an idea. In Afrikaans, they call that a Kuier. It requires time and desire. There is no other way to truly see someone. There is no other way to connect.
