Rules:
1st round is acceptance, definitions (Prop only), and what Society N is (Prop only).
In the 5th round you're not allowed to bring up new points.
Failure to abide by these rules counts as automatic win.
Forfeiture is allowed.

Society N:
The community passes around all food, and water, and living space equally to all members of the community, and every law has to be made so that everybody is equal, then is passed to the referendum stage, where the community anonymously votes on the bill, which if majority is reached, will become law. Everybody has to be equal, and all forms of diversity are eliminated to create pure equality. Everybody takes a pill that numbs down on feelings, and everybody gets a spouse (which is completely random), and has exactly two children. All luxuries are had by everybody, and free trade is not allowed, and free speech is banned.

Definitions:
Diversity:
Standing out compared to other people
Equality:
Elimination of diversity
Spouse:
Wife/Husband
Referendum:
Election to vote on a decision, or law

I'm sure that everyone can see that this would be an aweful society to live in. There are some particuallary troubling parts of this-


"all forms of diversity are eliminated to create pure equality."

This means that the society would eleminate ethnic diversity as well. Were talking straght up racial cleasing.


everybody gets a spouse (which is completely random)

Marriages, arranged by the government. Does anyone else see the problem here?


free speech is banned.

I hope you realize that what allows your to spout your authoritarian nonsense in the first place is free speech.


Everybody takes a pill that numbs down on feelings,

I feel like you have taken this society from a dystopian novel.


Back to you Pro.

Its not too mysterious. It means "This house believes that" in this case there should be a dystopian collectivist and authoritarian society.
