The core of any debate rests with the debators. How else might debate be created? I believe that if you are to have quality, expansive debate, you're going to need a large base of debators so that topics that interest a wide variety of people will receive a wide variety of answers. In having a larger people base, you will in turn create more interest in the individual if they recognize that by posting a topic or response that is their own, then they have the potential of hearing a lot of feedback from other debators since there exist so many numerically. There is no better way to improve the amount of quality, expansive debate than to create interest among a lot of people. That's how things in this country get changed, that's also how they should be discussed.
