Hi everyone, today I'd like to write a short (lol) thread about a topic that comes up again and again in both leftist circles and discourse at large surrounding media. I don't have a definitive argument to put forward, but I hope to encourage discussion and to invite all of you to think critically and make steps towards a clearer understanding of what is often a rather hazy concept. I'll use CWs but be advised I'll be discussing upsetting things throughout.

So, without further ado: irony.

live debates are a fucking awful way of mediating who has a better opinion in general. they suck.

here's a scenario: your opponent cites some obscure figure they've completely decontextualised/manipulated to fit their argument. you haven't heard of this statistic. i mean, why would you have? it's irrelevant! but how are you meant to respond to their citation if you have zero knowledge of its source? live debates don't just allow these tactics to be used, they actively incentivise them!

it's easy to seem like you got the upper hand when you have a long list of statistics you straight up fabricated beforehand
