Robert defends the position: Healthcare can be and should be a fundamental human right.
Ep 003's Ten Takeaway Tips
1. Number your points to help you and your opponent keep track of multiple issues.
2. Highlight where you agree, then reframe the argument about where there’s actual disagreement.
3. When you’re advocating that a fundamental right be recognized, link it back to specific language in a document or other agreement that your opponent agrees is valid.
4. Before you start to pick apart someone’s argument, zoom out from the specific and see if there’s broader questions about how they arrived at their conclusion that they could explain, first, to add clarity.
5. When you draw comparisons or give examples, think through them first to see if they’re similar enough to this case to use.
6. Resist the urge to ask more than one question.
7. Don’t demonize the opposing viewpoint or movement.
8. Instead of criticizing a lack of evidence, politely invite your opponent to provide that evidence.
9. If you know there’s criticisms of your position, tell your opponent that you recognize them.
10. If you see a legitimate concern of your opponent, recognize it.
