Pro

The first round is all about acceptance.
I would like to ask the opponent (if there is one) to agree on the fact that the audience under the motion is on a global scale, including America, South Korea, the U.K, and many more.
Wylted

Con

Burden of proof is on pro.

Also, I would like to state. I think voting shouldn't be compulsory, because people aren't generally well informed enough to make competent decisions about political candidates.

JimmyMoon forfeited this round.
Wylted

Con

People just aren't well informed about politics. They have no clue what they're voting for. In all likelihood it's probably a good thing democracy has been undermined by the media, banking and other institutions. I was watching this documentary recently and I'm sure the interviews were, cherry picked but several Americans when asked if they knew what the holocaust was and they claimed to have never heard of it.

Why the hell would anyone want those fools voting?
