Thicket.io: a tool for a post-truth world (visualize research and debates)
Thicket is a platform for rigorous thinking. Users can map out political ideas, discover relevant research, and debate policy claims with others. Thicket puts your beliefs about policy in context, connecting them to relevant academic research and to opposing arguments. Thicket is aimed at students, researchers, journalists, and everyone interested in politics and public policy. The intro video is the best place to start.

Then you can check out some debates that have been created: Immigration, Universal Basic Income, Public vs Private Currencies.

Have you seen arguman.org? It shows a different way to display debates, which I find intuitive and easy to read.
