Three Activities

Watch this debate:

During one speech repeat exercise n. 2 (come up with 10 questions)

(See Answer 1)


During the next speech, pause every 20s and come up with a question you would ask at that point.

(See Answer 2)


At any point of the debate when a question happens, pause the video and try guessing what the question will be.

(See Answer 3)


POI on the POI.

(See Answer 4)

Answer 1

Posing POIs to 1st proposition:

  1. (2.21) - The reason they hire you is because you’ve attained a certain set of knowledge, skill working for that degree rather than the prestige it can provide.
  2. (2.48) - The narrative is true; because we see that most successful people in today's world and have stable jobs and incomes are people with higher education; the vast majority of cases like Bill Gates, Mark Zucerberg barely succeeded in life and had family support to build on this lifestyle.
  3. (2.56) - Uniquely the idea of higher education offers an alternative that might not exist beforehand as in to say if you’re not a successful handyman you can still opt-into higher education if you wish.
  4. (3.19) - Wouldn’t having a narrative of success via diploma uniquely enable these institutions to feel a responsibility to offer better education?
  5. (4.19) - Even if it removes to a certain extent free choice; proposition still needs to explain why giving or offering an accessible way to success is bad.
  6. (5.08) - Why would the idea of higher education offering more opportunities necessarily mean you need to get 4 or 5 PhDs?
  7. (6.00) - Higher education doesn’t mean that everyone will go and try getting a doctorate, this could also probably look like getting a diploma or a masters.
  8. (7.56) – Wouldn’t more enrollment and more money necessitate hiring better workers and expanding the pre-existing academic path?
  9. (8.17) - Why would any standard be lowered?

(8.20) - Even if the standard would be lowered this doesn’t necessarily mean that all of this means the higher education will be worse off – couldn’t it mean they become more accessible?

Answer 2
  1. (10.50 protected time is over) – just because it’s versatile and you have educational fields open; why would this help anyone who’s not academically skilled but is better at hard labor?
  2. Why is financial security only facilitated with higher education? Isn't that narrative gatekeeper?
  3. Why is scientific development necessarily symmetric across the globe just because of this narrative?
  4. If it requires specialization; doesn’t that mean an average individual would be losing their most precious years of work?
Answer 3

23.08 – Why do women necessarily have to buy-in / opt-in on the idea of higher education = success; structurally women have been and will be structurally limited from entering such institutions regardless of what the narrative is; hence causing even more harm to women at the end of the day and structurally disabling them from advancing in an oppressive society.

Answer 4

23.08 – Why do or how do women progress through academia structurally the same as men if we see this already not happening within the status quo, especially when we still see dogmatic and up-tight behavior coming exactly from higher academia against women.
