I hope for a good debate,
whoever accepts this challenge, please notice that i set the character limit at 8,000... because I would rather have a more 'meaty' debate than a tiny one, please state facts, sources, and reasoning, as well as assertions.

-Thank You

I would like to thank my opponent for making this debate.

I await my opponent's affirmation, definitions, and supporting information for the affirmation.

Affirmation - an affirmation is a statement you are trying to debate for. Usually done in the "I affirm that _Topic___of___debate" format. In this case your affirmation would be I affirm that the civil disobedience displayed in the recent University of California Protests is justified.

Definitions and Explanation: Here is where you should define the words: civil disobedience and justified, and set up a strict standard for the what is civil disobedience and what isn't and what is justifiable and what isn't justifiable. Make it clear where to draw the line between civil disobedience and civil obedience and between justifiable and non-justifiable. These lines should be clearly distinguishable. For example if I was to bring up another protest, I should be able to easily fit them into a category of either justifiable or non-justifiable and civil disobedience or civil obedience based upon your guideline.

Supporting Information - This is where you would include reasons why the University of California protests lives up to your definition of justifiable. The supporting information should utilize your definitions and explanations. You should clearly show why it is justifiable. As the person who created the resolution, you have the burden of proof and thus must prove, (using your definitions and explanations) along with examples factual/logical information why the protests are justifiable. You should also give your opinion on other protests that involved civil disobedience. Should they be considered justified too?

Thanks and good luck on the debate!

All points defaulted to Co. I've been interested in debating civil disobedience so maybe I'll challenge you, john :) Although I have to do some other promised debates first.

Its not as if my opponent even glanced at the debate after he posted it.

I do not need to post a negative case because I am unclear of the argument. Also as was shown my opponent did not even bother responding. Posting a negative case would have been a huge waste of time.

CON should have at least posted a negative case.
