The person who mentioned, “ It all depends on your age and socioeconomic status before one left. The lady talks about cost, we know from own lives there is no such thing as free lunch.” is getting himself in a slippery slope argument. I tried to get your point, however, the arguments that you throw contradict to each other. In other words, you are for as well as against the motion. You have seem like to be intellectually updated regarding to the matter of immigration. What is your clear cut point? Are you for or against the motion? On the same token, please elaborate the difference between immigration and migration. <br /><br />Hey people, I believe the audience of the debate includes non-Amharic speakers too. Please don’t abuse yourself by squeezing your brain with the language that the debate has been performed. If Amharic is your case, why would not you print your replies in Amharic???<br /><br />Semex ze’ Nefas Silk<br />

I like this debate but I wonder why given you are all Ethiopians you had to speak in English. Also the debate is rather contrived. It just lacks authenticity. We Ethiopians in Diaspora are not one homogeneous group. It all depends on your age and socioeconomic status before one left. The lady talks about cost, we know from own lives there is no such thing as free lunch. OF course people are aware of the costs. So to conclude that one is disappointed, it all depends on one's expectations. The issue is how one ,irrespective of one's nationality, one should manage one's expectations. I guess the fact that we have not been colonized means when we come here we find it difficult to communicate but that cannot be the cost of immigration. This lady talks about happiness but that is a subjective thing which depends on your friends and environment. I guess if you live in a consumer society like USA you are bombarded with adverts reminding the stuff you do not have, then it is bound to affect your happiness. I guess if you have lived a sheltered life in Ethiopia where you have not been given the opportunity to acquire life skills it is a shock to your system when you come to USA. These people need to read research literature on the effect of migration on first generation migrants who have settled well before Ethiopians. I like the argument it is just more input based on research would have been illuminating. PLEASE SPEAK IN AMHARIC.

It is a good start lady and gentleman but why you don’t use Amharic language most people who can gain from this conversation are may not understand the level of language you are using. This is my thought if the target audiences are average people. Bout good job we need this kind of conversation on all aspect of life.<br />Abebe <br />

Ethiopia haters win in America, brain washed by toxic Diasporas and Ethiopia enemies.

Dear 1a206e8b, <br />This is the first debate of its kind and there are a lot of lessons we learnt from having it... but instead of calling it sub standard, it would help us if you took the time to give us pointers on how to make it better. Please feel free to provide feedback and suggestions for the follow up debates. Use ada.please@gmail.com.<br />Thank you.
