very interesting discourse and a good take on the topic. the debate between the two just made me wonder if people would REALLY speak like that to one another in a general conversation? it sounded more like a formal debate you might hear on the radio.
the use of only dialogue meant you had to keep repeating the names of the speakers, perhaps adding some description of the tow characters and using said, replied commented etc would break up the dialogue and make it more realistic....
just some suggestions...
others may disagree of course

Great job with this dialogue. Adding action is another way to show the speaker without using tags. (he said, he asked, etc.)
It is also a way to develop your characters, so the reader can relate to them more.
Well done! Keep it up.
