I will let my opponent point out why he thinks it should not continue and respond to his arguments. I thank my opponent in advance for taking on this controversial topic and wish him good luck....

In this debate, I hope to defend a radical claim, that government is unnecessary and undesirable. First, I must define what a government is.
