Benshapiro

Con

It is my burden of proof to show that this is not not a debate.

Debate definition:

"a formal discussion on a particular topic in which opposing arguments are put forward.

If my opponent proposes an argument, this supports this debate not not being a debate and my resolution is upheld.

If my opponent doesn't propose an argument, he will lose for failing to rebut my argument for why this debate is not not a debate.

These are my formal arguments in support of the resolution.

Thank you and over to pro.
Envisage

Pro

Thanks Con.

I can win this contest by asking the voters to read my opponent's opening round to see if Con actually made any positive arguments for if I do not provide arguments as to whether or not this is a debate (the second horn of his dilemma). If he didn't then voters should vote Pro for Con not upholding his burden of proof (which he placed on himself in his opening statement).

Therefore, my round is a word of advice to voters, rather than an argument. I advise voters to vote for Pro in accordance with the principles of being a good voter IF you can't see a positive argument given by Con according to Con's self-imposed BoP.

Thank you for enjoying this contest.

Reasons for voting decision: Con failed to meet their BOP. And failed to explain why presenting an opposing argument would negate that it was a debate.
