As the members of the DSA agree on many things and except for a few active people #debate-or-rant being largely unused, the Ministry of Domestic Affairs thought it was time to organize a debate.
What is the debate about: How centralized should the government be and what is the use of more or less centralization is it has any use at all? (centralization being how much power and authority is placed in a national or centralized government, an unitary state like France is highly centralized, while federal states like the USA or Germany are less centralized as they hand over power to subnational entities.)
Why was this topic chosen for the debate: We believe that above being an interesting topic that we can learn many things about, centralization is also a topic that can be discussed in either the context of a 'western democracy' or a revolutionary communist state.
Are there any rules or is there any moderation: Above keeping the debate civlized or respectfull there aren't any special rules, we will see in the MoDA if we could and should hold debates on a larger scale that are more organized in the future.
You may debate this on #debate-or-rant in the discord server, on the regoinal RMB, or on this forum thread.
