Well, it sounds like there's another round of protests in Hong Kong, and so I thought I'd ask you guys a speculative question:
"What should Hong Kong's future be?"
Recent News on Hong Kong:

*Quick announcement, I'm going on a family roadtrip, so after this week, there will be no new topics for the next two weeks until at least the 7th of July.*
This week's topic is following news that is somewhat buried, and is hard to find really good sources for reference, but here we go:
"What do you believe will happen in South Sudan following the Coup D'etat by the military?"
To clarify, this will be speculation and educated guessing.
Dang. Almost everyone is dead here 😥😥😥
R.I.P Slovadia, you will be missed, pozdrawiam cię, kolego
I am alive! The road trip was fun and I even learned a bit more about my family history when visiting relatives. Anyways, this week's debate feels like it might be a bit mild, but I might be wrong:
"Should inmates (including those that would not be released without pardon or commutation) be allowed to take college-level classes and work towards degrees while incarcerated?"

The Hechinger Report: https://hechingerreport.org/will-thousands-of-prison-inmates-lose-access-to-college/
Well, I'll keep this brief since I still have to study for the college math placement test this week:
"What should happen with the governor of Peurto Rico?"

OK, just a short, easy debate this week:
"What is your opinion on the 'Positive Ticketing' campaign in Tempe, AZ?"
USA Today: https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/follow-the-law-get-pulled-over-why-a-police-plan-to-ticket-drivers-backfired-in-arizona/ar-AAF26ym?ocid=spartanntp
And we're back this week with tech-oriented debate this time.
Also, if you didn't see last week's post, I would just like to offer my condolences to anyone who may have lost friends or family in the recent mass shootings in the US.
"Should companies be allowed to create their own currencies, digital or otherwise?"
The Washington Post: https://www.washingtonpost.com/outlook/2019/08/12/facebooks-libra-cryptocurrency-is-part-disturbing-financial-trend/?noredirect=on
Well, break out the economic textbooks because this week we'll be discussing the stock market!
"When do you believe the next recession or perhaps even depression occur, and what do you believe will cause it?"
