Minerval Arts

Introduction

This is an invitation to practice minerval arts with me or anyone you can find who is willing to participate. Minerval arts is a friendly battle of minds and ideas with an ultimate goal of increasing awareness for the practitioners and observers. If everyone practiced and appreciated minerval arts we would have our best chance at peace on Earth because we would have our best chance at optimally informed decision making.

Expectations

We will attempt our negotiations for the encounter in a public way which is accessible to everyone on the internet. You will assign to me a popular position in the mainstream media and I will defend it. I will be given at least 3 weeks to prepare for my defense of the popular position. I will offer different formats and venues for the encounter. You can offer different formats and venues for the encounter. We will not begin the encounter until we have confirmed our agreement.

Example

Gavin creates a public tweet which mentions GrimGriz and contains a link to this blog post. GrimGriz responds to the tweet suggesting that Gavin defends a popular position in the mainstream like:

  • the election of Joe Biden as President of the United States was fair and there was no cheating in elections

Gavin then suggests a format and a venue:

  • Within 3 weeks of participants acceptance of this format and venue, Gavin will create an unlisted video on YouTube which will not exceed 10 minutes.
  • Gavin will share a link to that video on the original tweet thread.
  • GrimGriz will create an unlisted response video on YouTube which will not exceed 10 minutes.
  • GrimGriz will reply to Gavin’s video link on twitter with his own video link.
  • Gavin and GrimGriz will take turns and each participant can take up to 3 weeks to respond.
  • Each participant must be willing to produce at least 10 videos.
  • The last video produced by each participant must attempt to point out at least one thing the other person did well and at least one thing the other person could do better.

GrimGriz can either accept the format and the venue or begin a process of negotiating the format and venue.
