Time: Two weeks.
Topic: Western culture, women.
Comment: "Women are the reason the west has such high unemployment".
if constructive debate is allowed to progress, better ideas will ultimately supplant worse ideas.

That is incredibly precise... and sadly, so possible!

In some ways it's not entirely wrong, if you were to cut the work force in half by removing all the women unemployment would not really be an issue. This of course has it's own issues, but hey unemployment isn't one of them.

True, because we count them as part of the work force, so they are counted in unemployment rates.

If we were to say they are not part of the work force, then they would not count towards unemployment rates, in the same way that we don't count children in unemployment rates, because they are not part of the workforce.

But again, it's a superficial solution to one problem that creates 4 or 5 other big problems thus it would be a horrible solution.
