Agree? or Bullsh!t?

Either way, we're all about civilly championing the diversity of thought.

Prolific Quote

I'm not shy about heated debate or passionate discourse, but when people get crazy or rude, that's a buzzkill. There's got to be a better code of conduct, some basic etiquette.

ChrisCanada-OptionAorB-Moderator

Chris Canada

Why?


After an incident at a house party where an argument resulted in Chris Canada being called the N-word, Chris became inspired and had the vision to change the way everyday people participate-in and absorb civil discourse. So, Chris created the Option A or B debate society, where essentially any and all people, from anywhere and everywhere, can debate any and all topics, with a moderator, and release each debate as a podcast episode for the world to listen to and interact with.

Since we are fortunate enough to live in times where the human race is virtually connected, Option A or B's purpose is to leverage this technology as a tool of liberation, bring different ideas and opinions together in a positive way, and highlight the real truth, people are a lot more alike than they are different.

About the Moderator


Chris is a world expert in digital conflict resolutions, raised in the 253 and now resides in the 212. With 30+ years of arguing experience, Chris believes to be the best pound for pound debater of all time, but is now satisfied with the role of an exhibition debater (basically like Apollo Creed in Rocky IV). Chris also enjoys being a moderator for Option A or B, instead of giving people that work (similar to how Darth Vader did people in the last scene of Rogue One). Lastly, Chris feels very strongly that toxic tribalism is wack AF! #CancelYourself
