Interested participants

Wikipedia is mainly focused on facts, it is a source of registered and documented facts, sometimes it might mention myths and it might mention briefly debates and arguments.

I propose the development of Wikidebate, which should be an international library of argued subjects and it should include not just facts but also opinions, statements and other.

As an example, an article on Wikidebate could have the title "Abortion" and the content could be split into "For" and "Against", each holding facts, opinions, arguments, extracts from books and conclusions.
