Pro

Rules of debate:
1) No ad hominem, personal attacks, or insults, be civil
2) The total number of rounds minus one should be used for argument, since I am not using round 1 for argument. This is to keep the number of rounds used for argument even between us
3) The first round used for argument should just be your main arguments, no rebuttals in this round. So, if you're second to post your first arguments, it should contain no rebuttals.
4) The last round used for argument should just be rebuttal and/or conclusion. No new argumetns in this round. New facts or information can be brought up, but only in rebuttal to your opponent's arguments.

Definition of terms:
Subjectivism: the doctrine that knowledge pertains to persons individually, as opposed to everyone as a whole, and that there is no external or objective truth. In other words, subjectivism is the philosophical tenet that "our own mental activity is the only unquestionable fact of our experience"[1]
Objectivism: a philosophical system who's tenets are that reality exists independently of consciousness, that human beings have direct contact with reality through sense perception, that one can attain objective knowledge from perception through the process of concept formation and inductive logic, that the proper moral purpose of one's life is the pursuit of one's own happiness that the only social system consistent with this morality is one that displays full respect for individual rights embodied in laissez-faire capitalism, and that the role of art in human life is to transform humans' metaphysical ideas by selective reproduction of reality into a physical form—a work of art—that one can comprehend and to which one can respond emotionally.
