    Abstract:
    The purpose of this essay is to demonstrate that discussion is distorted in the United States. By “distortion” I mean an inconsistency between the generally understood meaning of the word and the practices that go by it’s name. The meanings of ‘discussion’ range from turn-taking sequences to democratic ideals, as opposed to recitation, conversation, debate, and other forms of interaction.
