About Me:I'm currently studying to become a psychiatrist. Right now I'm getting general education done at Citrus College, but then will transfer to California Polytechnical Institution Pomona Winter 2018 to finish a degree in psychology. From there, I'll move onto Medical School and get a degree in psychiatry. I come from a family of five, am generally respectful of other people, and can be pretty serious. I'm very interested in government, economic systems, history, psychology, sociology, and gender studies. I'm pretty much a social science nerd since all of what I said fall under the social sciences.
Activities:I enjoy games, both electronic(video) games and board games. I like to read, I enjoy bike riding, I like to debate(hence why I'm here) and I enjoy cartoons and anime.
Beliefs:For religious beliefs, I'm agnostic. I believe that the only thing that can be known with certainty is one's own existence. Everything else, I believe are beliefs since they depend on our own senses. So, in a sense, my other beliefs is that I'm a human who lives on a planet called earth. Eh, I'm not going to state all of my beliefs here, basically everything that everyone who's mentally sound agrees upon, I believe, since that is also what my senses are telling me. For political beliefs, I'm a Libertarian Socialist. This is not an oxy-moron. For a run-down on what Libertarian Socialism is, here is the wikipedia page for it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Libertarian_socialism
Books:I'll fill this one out later, there are too many to choose from.
Movies:There are more than just the below, but to name a few: Star Wars Lord of the Rings Hunt for the Red October The Pianist The Book Thief I'll add more later.
Music:I'll listen to just about anything, except country.
Quotes:All of the below are Noam Chomsky quotes:
"Education is a system of imposed ignorance."
"If we don't believe in freedom of expression for people we despise, we don't believe in it at all."
"It is the fundamental duty of the citizen to resist and to restrain the violence of the state."
The below is from Joseph Dejacque:
"Official or legal authority, by whatever name one decorates it, is always false and harmful. Only natural or anarchic authority is true and beneficial. "

This one is from John Stuart Mill:
"The form of association, however, which if mankind continue to improve, must be expected in the end to predominate, is not that which can exist between a capitalist as chief, and work-people without a voice in the management, but the association of the labourers themselves on terms of equality, collectively owning the capital with which they carry on their operations, and working under managers elected and removable by themselves."
Sports Teams:I don't like any sports.
TV Shows:Cartoons: My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic(yes, I'm a brony), Gravity Falls, Rick and Morty, Star vs the Forces of Evil, Invader Zim, Futurama, American Dad and many more Anime: Psycho-Pass, Rorouni Kenshin, Death Note, When they cry, and many more. Non-cartoon, non-anime: Star Trek, CSI there's probably more that I can't name right now

The notion that Stalin caused the death of millions of people

Emilrose

My position: I will be arguing that Stalin is not responsible for the deaths of millions of people who died in the Ukrainian famine, or "holodomor" as other people call it. My position will be that a famine happened. I will even be arguing that Stalin attempted to combat the problem of the famine.The holodomor was supposedly a case where millions of people died and people who believe Stalin was behind it, believe he purposely put in reforms that would lead to worsening the famine with the intent...

Anthropogenic climate change and increased CO2 levels are beneficial to humans and plant life

Capitalistslave
byaka2013

I will be arguing for the above. My opponent will argue that climate change is not beneficial to humans and plant life. This is not a debate on whether anthropogenic climate change occurs. We will assume it does in this debate. If you don't believe in anthropogenic climate change, you're still welcome to do this debate with me, if you just assume it does exist. You would be arguing that if anthropogenic climate change exists, it is not beneficial to humans and plant life.Common definitions for t...

The united states' defense budget should be decreased by at least $200 billion

Please don't accept if you're going to forfeitThe past two times I tried this debate, the contender forfeited. I suspect this might have been the case because they found that they couldn't refute my points perhaps, since they were online during the time it was their turn to post. So, please, don't accept if you're going to forfeit. Take a look at what I argued previously for this debate: http://www.debate.org/debates/The-united-states-defense-budget-should-be-decreased-by-at-least-200-billion/2/...
