About TURNCOAT DEBATE

Without debate, without criticism, no administration and no country can succeed and no republic can survive - John F. Kennedy.

A turncoat is a form of debate where the speaker literally debates against oneself. The speaker starts by taking a stance on the topic and switches sided after a specific duration of time. In this style of debating, the same speaker shifts allegiance between "for" and "against" the motion. It is a solo contest, unlike other debating forms. In a turncoat format, the emphasis is one transition, the strength of argument and balancing of opinions.
