Governance unit tests
We are looking to test our constitution articles, and spur debate, which could take the form of a video debate.
Here is a link to the current constitution:
In the replies to this thread please post your suggestion for a unit test:
Each unit test will need the following information:
Highlight one specific article to be tested.
Determine the main 2 or 3 specific arguments which may be debated. This can include specific wording of the article(s) or fundamental stances. Must include in a real life use case that tests the Amendment.
Test the arguments above by showing what each argument is expected to yield, in the form of real expected outcomes.
Video debates should be public for all to see and the outcome is that consensus on the resolution should be clear and supported by the community.
Example by Jose Toriello (EOS Meso):
If article Y states Z, then O will be the outcome.
Therefore, a better wording would be article Y stating W, because O+ would be outcome.
Then we can agree or disagree with the validity of O and O+ as probable outcomes or find out why they might not be true.
Learning from the Munk Debates (munkdebates.com), here is a proposed idea for format:
1) We can propose a statement, ie: Be it resolved, Article XV is ....
2) Take a pre-poll on the Pro and Con side of the statement in 1)
3) Have 2-3 debaters, for each the PRO and CON sides of the argument, debate on record for all to see.
4) Take an exit poll
