SPECIAL MUN TOPIC: How do you handle the people who like to argue?

This is a topic that makes people crazy! You may have heard of the secretive order known as the Freemasons? Well, the Freemasons wrote the Constitution… and they agreed that they were gonna have this place (called a “lodge”) where no one could talk about religion or politics… But… I’m sure, just like me, you’ve got some friends that ALWAYS have to talk about God, or Politics, or some philosophical belief that is going to take all of the fun out of the night… So how...

Special MUN Topic:  It’s more than serious in Syria!

The situation in Syria is deteriorating more and more every day. A civil war for control of the Syrian government has continued now for 16 months with no sign of relief any time soon. With a daily death rate approximately 10 times that of the war in Afghanistan many observers feel that intervention is long overdue. Attempts have been made by the United Nations to mitigate the chaos and bloodshed present in Syria but these efforts have had little impact on the current state of the conflict. Kofi Anan, former...
