SUBSCRIBE for more speakers ► http://is.gd/OxfordUnion Varun Sivaram opens the case for the proposition with an intriguing question: "Why is America the best country in the world?" Sivaram takes a wry look at this question, and recounts that America leads the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of people who believe angels are real, and defence spending -- where America spends more than the next 26 countries combined. However, Sivaram elucidates what patriotism isn't -- "It's not extreme, blindfolded or disparaging", but rather "an affinity for, and identification with, one's country". Moreover, he advocates how patriotism is a transcendent extension of our inter...

  • Anne Marie Waters, Islam Is Not A Peaceful Religion, Oxford Union

    Published on 3 Jul 2013 Anne-Marie Waters gives her argument against Islam being a peaceful religion. Anne-Marie Waters, council member of the National Secular Society, begins the case for the opposition by denying that she and her fellow opposition speakers cause fear of Islam and blames instead "the actions of Islam itself". She lists "9/11, 7/7, Mali, Somalia, gender discrimination, forced marriages, polygamy, amputation", and many more. To the opposition's claim that these acts belong to an "extreme fringe" which has misunderstood the words of the Qur'an, she described the executions for blasphemy and apostasy in Saudi Arabia, and asks "has there ever been a more spectacular misunderstanding?" Waters concludes by arguing that it is the moderate Muslims who must "dance around meaning...

  • Oxford, the Oldest University City in the United Kingdom

    Oxford is the oldest university city in the United Kingdom, some 50 miles to the west of the capital London in its own county of Oxfordshire, on the rivers Thames and Cherwell. Together with Cambridge, Oxford has long represented the English academic establishment and élite, a haven of tradition and endeavour. Oxford's famous "Dreaming Spires" refer to the medieval churches and colleges that dominate the bustling modern town in all their Gothic splendour. Picturesque architecture and a vibrant modern life set in the rolling countryside of Oxfordshire make this a great destination. Oxford was first occupied in Saxon times, and was initially known as "Oxanforda". The settlement began with the foundations of St Frideswide's nunnery in the 8th century, and was first mentioned in written recor...

Miss World 2013 speaks at the prestigious Oxford University and defends the Miss World event from detractors who say it demeans women. Full Story: Some of the sharpest minds in student academics turned out at the prestigious Oxford University to hear a speech from Miss World 2013 and contestants for this year's competition on Tuesday. Megan Young was crowned Miss World 2013 when she represented the country of her mother's birth the Philippines. But it was less about her looks today when she spoke before a crowd of students at the Oxford Union and defended the Miss World event from detractors who say it demeans women. Before she spoke to the crowd, Young and this year's contestants were given a tour of the University's centuries-old buildings, where some of the world's most celebrated scientists, writers and academic minds have studied. Young implied that she was feeling a few nerves before the speech. "I'm a bit nervous of course we're in the Oxford University and we'll be with the Oxford Union so for me to just step into this campus and be in this area where very famous have been it's an honour and I'm just very excited and nervous at the same time." Young was joined at the debate by competitors for the Miss World 2014 title. One of those to join her was Miss England, Carina Tyrrell, who is a final year medicine student at Oxford's traditional academic rivals, Cambridge University. Tyrrell defended the competition from criticism that women are judged more on their looks rather than their brains. "You are surrounded by women who represent their countries. These are role models, they are role models to young women and role models to society." Tyrrell also said that she was looking forward to debating against Oxford University students. "There is a little bit, yes. I'm hoping to make Cambridge proud and stand my ground, certainly," she said. Once the tour was finished Young and the Miss World contestants made their way to the Oxford Union, where they were also joined by the 1953 winner Denise Perrier. The likes of Miss South Africa and Miss United States then delivered speeches before a busy Union. "Miss World allows women the chance to represent their countries. It allows us the chance to lead. Miss World is not a celebrity, she is an ambassador. She tells women all around the world again that it's okay to have an opinion. She makes changes happen. She identifies problems and she finds solutions. She changes the world," said Miss United States, Elizabeth Safrit. The contestants then fielded questions from students and Megan Young got emotional as she recalled what the hardest part of being Miss World has been. "And what... it hurts really, it really does hurt and sometimes you just can't help but cry. I'm sorry I'm getting really emotional because you know I've been through so many countries and it's just so difficult seeing them in this position and you know people are saying you're Miss World you should save the world, and to be honest, we can't really save the world as a whole, we're doing it part by part. We're not Superman. We're human too," said Young. With the debate at an end the Miss World contestants and students left the Union. "I was a bit disappointed that it didn't have more of a debate, wasn't formed throughout the evening, perhaps, on the kind of moral issues behind having what's still fundamentally a beauty pageant. And having women from such privileged backgrounds being supposedly representative of their countries," said Oxford University student, Kate Welsh. "All of us here just came to prove that it's a lot more than just pretty faces behind us. Whether it's a story or here for a reason, for a personal reason," said Miss Puerto Rico. Miss World 2014 takes place on December 14 at the ExCeL Arena in London, where Megan Young will be on hand to crown the latest woman to win the historic prize.

Varun Sivaram argues for the motion that 'This House is Proud to be Patriotic'. SUBSCRIBE for more speakers ► http://is.gd/OxfordUnion Varun Sivaram opens the case for the proposition with an intriguing question: "Why is America the best country in the world?" Sivaram takes a wry look at this question, and recounts that America leads the world in only three categories: number of incarcerated citizens per capita, number of people who believe angels are real, and defence spending -- where America spends more than the next 26 countries combined. However, Sivaram elucidates what patriotism isn't -- "It's not extreme, blindfolded or disparaging", but rather "an affinity for, and identification with, one's country". Moreover, he advocates how patriotism is a transcendent extension of our interpersonal relations, and that nationalism and jingoism are merely distortions of the term. Filmed on Thursday 14th November 2013 MOTION: This House is Proud To Be Patriotic RESULT: Defeated.

Published on 3 Jul 2013 Anne-Marie Waters gives her argument against Islam being a peaceful religion. Anne-Marie Waters, council member of the National Secular Society, begins the case for the opposition by denying that she and her fellow opposition speakers cause fear of Islam and blames instead "the actions of Islam itself". She lists "9/11, 7/7, Mali, Somalia, gender discrimination, forced marriages, polygamy, amputation", and many more. To the opposition's claim that these acts belong to an "extreme fringe" which has misunderstood the words of the Qur'an, she described the executions for blasphemy and apostasy in Saudi Arabia, and asks "has there ever been a more spectacular misunderstanding?" Waters concludes by arguing that it is the moderate Muslims who must "dance around meanings" and "stretch interpretations" when confronted with the fundamentally violent ideology of the Qur'an. MOTION: THIS HOUSE BELIEVES ISLAM IS A RELIGION OF PEACE. Yes's: 286 No's: 168 Filmed on 28/02/2013 ABOUT ANNE-MARIE WATERS: ANNE-MARIE WATERS is a council member of the National Secular Society and a spokesperson for the One Law For All campaign, which argues Sharia law is incompatible with Western liberalism. She is a prominent journalist and campaigner, and is a member of the Labour Party. ABOUT THE OXFORD UNION SOCIETY: The Union is the world's most prestigious debating society, with an unparalleled reputation for bringing international guests and speakers to Oxford. It has been established for 189 years, aiming to promote debate and discussion not just in Oxford University, but across the globe.

Oxford is the oldest university city in the United Kingdom, some 50 miles to the west of the capital London in its own county of Oxfordshire, on the rivers Thames and Cherwell. Together with Cambridge, Oxford has long represented the English academic establishment and élite, a haven of tradition and endeavour. Oxford's famous "Dreaming Spires" refer to the medieval churches and colleges that dominate the bustling modern town in all their Gothic splendour. Picturesque architecture and a vibrant modern life set in the rolling countryside of Oxfordshire make this a great destination. Oxford was first occupied in Saxon times, and was initially known as "Oxanforda". The settlement began with the foundations of St Frideswide's nunnery in the 8th century, and was first mentioned in written records in the Anglo-Saxon Chronicle for the year 912. By the 10th century Oxford had become an important military frontier town between the kingdoms of Mercia and Wessex and was on several occasions raided by the Danes. The University of Oxford was founded in the 12th century and therefore constitutes the oldest English-speaking university. Oxford, like Cambridge, differs from many other universities in that there is no 'campus' as such, and no central university building. Instead, the University consists of approximately 40 colleges and associated buildings, such as the Exam Schools, the world-famous Bodleian Library, and several world-class museums. Each college has its own individual character, some date from the 13th century, others are merely a few decades old. During World War II, Oxford was spared from the German carpet bombing that levelled many other British cities, making it one of the best-preserved medieval cities in the United Kingdom. QUESTIONS?
