This debate is part of the DDO Noob Tier Tournament. Please don't message me anymore for requests

BoP is on me to demonstrate that Adolf Hitler is worthy of a posthumous Nobel Peace Prize. Quick and easy debate!

4,000 Words, 72 hours.

Round 1: Acceptance & Rules
Round 2: Arguments & Rebuttals
Round 3: Arguments & Rebuttal
Round 4: Closing Rebuttals (no new arguments/brand new rebuttals)

No semantics.

Good Luck!

Raymond, I am sorry for wasting your time, but I am going to drop this debate. I have overloaded myself with debates and this resolution is too hard given my time constraints. I have a half-done argument but it's simply not feasible for me to do another 2 1/2 rounds of it.

I'm really sorry, I wish you best of luck in the finals. Please vote Con.

It's no problem, though I would enjoy debating you sometime in the future, not necessarily this topic.
Anyway, let's just post to finish the debate.
Best of luck on your other debates!

I would like to accept this debate. I think I could make a very good argument against this. Please consider my candidacy.

This will be a hard one to vote on... I suspect a lot of pro's case will be based on some really bad candidates, to include people who have done nothing at all, and actual terrorists.

I don't know why one would want to put themselves through Men Kampf, but I reckon we are almost equal on our knowledge of the man, perhaps you more so.

However, the argument you present would cause you to share a BoP, which automatically makes it a weaker argument. All one has to do is refute the claim that Adolf Hitler is worthy of a Nobel Peace Prize, to win the debate, and Pro has the full BoP for that.

I also have the highest ELO of those who want to debate it. I haven't debated too much recently, but this would be a good comeback for me. :)

@TrueScotsman:

I've read that book, plus Mein Kampf and the Leuchter report, three times. :P pick me, I'll be arguing that Adolf Eichmann is more worthy than Adolf Hitler.

I've read the Rise and Fall of the Third Reich: A History of Nazi Germany, twice! Which is to say, that I love this topic and would be a better debate than these young ones. :P

Pick me!!!

Reasons for voting decision: Concession... Interestingly, the peace prize has gone to men who are arguably worse than Hitler (certainly no better), such as Yasser Arafat in an attempt to encourage him to be less of a terrorist (anyone want to bet how many suicide bombings the prize money funded?)
