Its better to read the originals in book form in my opinion. The texts often come with references. Thats not to say you shouldn’t read the texts online–just to take the bigger picture into account when you make decisions. Alternatively, you can only view some philosophy and debate videos online.

Texts to Read:
1) Logical Fallacies
2) Intro to Philosophy Text
3) Individual and the Political Order
4) Speeches
5) Persuasion/Rhetoric Text
6) Critical thinking/Writing text
7) History of ideas text(s)
