Getting the Last Word in a debate is crucial, as it is the only proof of
your argumentative success.
Getting the last word means that you win the debate. It also shows your
moral superiority, and willingness to stand your ground. This should
convince your opponent that you are correct, and will certainly impress your
fellow list members.

It is particularly important to get the last word where you are in some
doubts as to the merits of your case. The last word will serve as a
clinching argument that will make up for any deficiencies in your logic.
Achieving the last word *now* also brings the advantage that you may
subsequently point to your success in this debate as the clinching argument
in future debates. However, if you did not win the last discussion, we still
recommend claiming incessantly that you did.
