I was just looking through the accepted topics and generally got the idea that this Stack Exchange does not support topics which rely largely on debate.
However I noticed a lot of the top rated question on this SE
Ask questions similar to why is X against Y despite Z evidence?
I was therefore wondering if the following sorts of questions are on-topic for this SE.
- Why does X country maintain Y policy position despite Z
- Why shouldn't X country do Y? (Contrary to a generally accepted political thesis) e.g. why shouldn't Iran have nuclear weapons despite X
- A question advancing the merits of a particular policy and asking why the policy is not generally supported despite benefits to Z subsection of the population
- A question which blatantly and fundamentally (with evidence) documents a point against a generally accepted political thesis. e.g. (This is an absolutely extreme example which I in no way support but advancing it to test a point) Did X genocide occur despite Y evidence to the contrary? Or is X actually a genocide despite Y?
- A question which advances a theory that could also be the answer. E.g. Why doesn't X occur despite Y (implying X should occur)
- Questions which are extremely lengthy due to exploration of a political thesis? e.g. Why is "example"-ism considered Y despite ABCDEFG reasons (prompting debate)
- Questions relating to hypocrisy of a position, why is Y against X despite Y doing X?
