Byzantine debate

Nothing is more harmful to humanity than resisting progress in the name of traditions often used to mean values. Most Arab traditions contradict in essence and in practice human rights, gender equality, and freedom in its widest sense. A debate can only be possible when 1) parties to it speak the same language 2) arguments and reasoning are governed by the law of logic 3) when parties agree that no topic is undebatable.
