I read a debate that took my interest. This theory makes sense to me and I would like to debate with someone who opposes this theory.

1st round - Acceptance and the presentation of your argument.

2nd round - Refuting any information or thoughts given in your opponent's argument and presenting further information or thoughts in support of your own.

3rd round - Final thoughts and conclusions.

I will start.

The theory is as follows....

- The more freedom people have, the less rules there are...

- The less rules there are, the less efficiency there can be in organizing a system of order...

- Without an efficient system of order in place, the result will be an increase in chaos...

- An increase in Chaos, results in an increase of the formation of problems.

The rational and logical conclusion is....

More freedom = More chaos = More problems

Or compressed... More freedom = More problems

I accept your challenge to debate with you. Good luck!
My presentation will prove that the theory is wrong, by proving that chaos would only happen from more freedoms if someone abuses it, and it is easy to do stuff you do not have the freedom to do anyway.

My opponent says... "My presentation will prove that the theory is wrong, by proving that chaos would only happen from more freedoms if someone abuses it, and it is easy to do stuff you do not have the freedom to do anyway."

I refute this claim, due to the fact that given if given such freedom, the definition of "abusing" that freedom would be different for different people.

Freedom = A difference in opinion towards the definition of "abusing" freedom.

A difference in the definition of "abusing" freedom = A difference amongst people

A difference amongst people = problems

The theory "More freedom = More problems" still stands solid.

I don't understand why people accept a 3 round debate and then forfeit the round in which he would give an argument I can refute. I can't refute an argument that is presented in the 3rd round. These kind of actions determine a debate to be bunk.

My argument still stands as it did in the first round.
