I accept the challenge. Round 5 will be conclusions, no new info can be brought up, only that which has been brought up in the debate thus far. Definitions will not be argued in the debate, all definitions will be commonly accepted meanings.

In order to win this debate I have to prove that debtors prison is unfair, despite Cons reasons that it is fair.

(Debtors prison is the incarceration of people based on unpaid debt)

My opponent has not been online in a week. I won't spend any more of the time I don't have to type up arguments against an absent debater. Award conduct points, for no arguments are presented, thus no convincing arguments should be posted.
