Rhydian Morgan is one of the rare debate instructors that can and will teach you about using the Marxist arguments in debate. Here and today you can watch him give the opposite lecture on the Free market, I still need to watch it and will give you more info about it. I know its great as any other Rhydian's lecture.

Ideas on how to refute other arguments from Alfred Snider, University of Vermont. The amount of University professors that you can see and listen to at the WDI is probably the highest. Watch this and come back for more.

Rhydian Morgan is still in the USA at the World debate institute. This time he is giving a lecture on points of information. Watch it here!
