Resolved: Access to drinking water ought to be valued as a human right instead of as a commodity.

Pro is for water being a human right.
Con is for water being a commodity.

Rules:
1. First round acceptance.
2. This will be an LD debate. All forms of LD cases are acceptable.
3. Cases may be posted through a google document link. ONLY CASES, not refutations.
4. In the event of a forfeit, all seven points must go to the victor.

Round structure:
1. Acceptance
2. Pro posts case, con posts case and refutes pro
3. Pro defends and refutes. Con defends and refutes
4. Pro defends and refutes. Con may not post any sort of argument or clarification in this round, to keep it structured as close to an LD debate as possible. However, pictures of lolcats are acceptable in this round for the con.

I await an opponent.

I've only seen one other case like mine, so you won't have to worry that much about going against one, but it's sooooooo epic!

It was a forfeit, it was a draw because I didn't have my case. That's totally different than a forfeit.

Since Zaradi specifically asked for the tie- I will give it it. But for future reference, be willing to lose a debate that you forfeit.

Dude, you're not supposed to vote on this.... or if anything, vote a tie.

Unfortunately I won't get it for a week or two. It would be fun to debate in a few weeks, but by then it'd be pointless.

Very nice. I actually wrote one of those. It's a solid idea. Dammit, now I really want to debate against it! -.-

TheBrorator
Yeah, it's pretty much a pragmatism case. It was interesting to write and was hesitant running it, but never lost a round with it!

Now I'm really interested in seeing your case. Is it like a pragmatism case?
Posted by TheBrorator 5 years ago
TheBrorator
Well, I can't debate without it, so I don't know what to do. I'd have cross-applies pretty much all of my contentions and observations to your case. My case is legit revolved around attacking a case like yours. But I don't have it. ARG!
