This and every Monday, the Bweinh!tributors, having convened in secret for hours of reasoned debate and consideration, will issue a brief and binding ruling on an issue of great societal import.

This week’s question — Which form of communication is superior?

Josh delivers the ruling of the Council, joined by Erin, Connie, and MC-B:

Speech represents the absolute height of human achievement, allowing us to understand one another and express ourselves in great depth almost effortlessly.


Tom concurs, joined by Mike, Djere, and MC-B:

Speech is the oldest, the most versatile, and practical across vast distances.


Chloe dissents, joined by David and Steve:

I would write, because I’m in love with the layers of words and the way they interact and mix together like colors. Writing allows me to think about my words and be eloquent and precise in ways that speaking and other forms of communication don’t allow.


David dissents, joined by Steve:

I love expressing myself in writing because every word can be crafted and polished before being presented — not to hide my intentions, but to allow me the time and space to uncover them perfectly.


Job played no part in the determination of this issue.
