The Argument

By The New York Times Opinion

The other side is dangerously wrong. They think you are too. But for democracy to work, we need to hear each other out.

Their candid debates help you form your own opinion of the latest news, and learn how the other half thinks. Find the best ways to persuade in the modern search for common ground.
