MHRM Literature

The following is an exact copy (typos and all) of a valuable forum post by AVFM forum member Leviathan, which was compiled with the assistance of several other members. Their forum aliases have been preserved at the bottom. This post will be updated when that post is.

This is an amazing list of MHRM literature, and you should use it as a reading list if you want to learn about the movement. Many thanks go to Leviathan for allowing me to repost this!

Debating

When debating in a formal setting, you need to be careful about everything behind your words, including sources and personal motivations. You also need to watch how you present yourself to make the audiences want to choose you over your opponent.

If you have suggestions to improve this article, speak up!

Government Sources

How are the schools doing? What laws are being considered? How many people are unemployed?

Questions like these are best answered from the horse’s mouth. These are sources of raw data on your governments.

United States

  • FOIA – The official source of information on the US executive branch. You can directly request reports on agencies thanks to the Freedom of Information Act. Note you may not get all of the information you want.
  • House Docs – A live source where you can watch bills being considered in the House of Representatives.
  • FedStats – A large repository of federal statistics sorted by topic.
  • NCES Statistics Tools – Use to generate and analyze raw numbers in American schools on a refined level.
  • Data.gov – Another source on executive branch shenanigans.
  • USA.gov – The end-all-be-all gateway to all information on the United States government.

Canada

United Kingdom

Australia

Academic Sources

Peer-reviewed content written by starving smart people.

Evaluation Tools

These resources help you evaluate arguments and the arguments supporting them.

Advice for Debaters

  • Remember: You. Are. Fallible.
  • Don’t play to win. Don’t try to win debates, just try to educate and be educated, while putting on a show for your audience. People will vote the way they will according to some criteria you cannot control, but how you appeal to their sensibilities can make all the difference.
  • Never forget the library. The Internet has made it possible for libraries to fade out in the future, but there is still a mountain of information that has not been digitized and can only be found in books. I didn’t use to believe this, but my history professor yelled at me for like, an hour, when I said that libraries were obsolete.
  • Accept facts, but be wary of interpretations of said facts.
  • Know the distinction between normative and declarative statements.
  • Read this over and over again.
  • Offer stipulative definitions for terms when they help clarify your intended meaning. If you don’t, you and your opponent may end up bickering over semantics or talking past each other.

Anonymous YT Videos – A tutorial for the Impatient

rsz_trollingyoutube

Siddown and shaddup.

Wait, don’t shaddup. You want your voices heard, right?

I am going to teach you all how to record an audio rant and publish it
on YouTube, without showing your face. Some MHRAs have
things to say, but cannot risk others knowing their identity for reasons relating to their career or social circle.

We will make a YouTube-friendly audio recording with a still image to hide your shameful, patriarchal pig mug. No webcam required, just a microphone.

These directions were written using a Windows 7 system. If these
directions do not work for you, tell me your OS and the software you want to use (including version, if you know it), and I may write a new set of directions.

To keep things brief, the tools used and their configurations are decided for you. If you have questions, just ask.

How to make a anonymous YouTube video

First things first, make sure you have a Google Account that is not too intimately tied with your real identity. This is the account you will use to log in to YouTube and upload videos.

1. Download or make an 854×480 image you want to put on your video. Here’s a fallback if you want to promote AVFM in your video.

2. Grab Windows Movie Maker (WMM).

3. Open WMM and drag your image onto the window.

4. Click “Record Narration”

5. Hit “Record”

6. Say your piece, then stop recording. You will be asked to save the file. Go ahead and place the recording wherever. It should be added to the project. You can see it as a brown scope under a video thumbnail (shown below).

7. Click “Project” and then “Fit to Music”. Also click “Widescreen” while you are there. If “Fit to music” is grayed out, try clicking that brown audio scope and hit the “Delete” key. Then, drag the file you saved in the last step back onto your video. Fit to Music should then become clickable.

8. Click the file menu, expand “Save Movie” and click “YouTube”.
