This is what will happen in the debate:

Round 1- State your stance
Round 2: Opening statements
Round 3: Rebuttals to opening statements
Round 4: Closing statements and second rebuttals

This debate is about a language that every on earth will know and I am against this!

It is a good idea to have a language on Earth that everyone knows.

Language is the system of words and signs that people use to express thoughts and feelings toward each other [1]. It is part of a culture and part of who you are. Some people speak English while others speak Russian. There many languages and to substitute that with only one language takes away a HUGE piece of your culture and your uniqueness.

Come to think of it, it is probably impossible to make 1 new language that everyone will know. It’s not because of the words, grammar, pronunciation, etc., but because of the people who will actually speak the language. Seriously, who will actually give up their own language just for a new one? Leaving your own distinct language would leave so much history and culture behind.

Let’s just say that somehow the language is accepted and eventually becomes the language that everyone knows. With the new language, many jobs can be lost. Businesses and websites that focus on one language (ex. Spanish) and teach it will shut down. Why you ask? Well, because Spanish is a dead language now like all the others so no one speaks it. Remember there is only one language that everyone knows. Language teachers that focus on one language will also lose their jobs. Also every single interpreter would lose their job. This actually would be major ingredient in the increasing unemployment rate.

Since my opponent has forfeited the previous round, I don't have any rebuttals. I would be happy if the opponent stated something.
