Reasons for voting decision: Conduct was even and fair. Spelling and grammar was equally wrong on both sides. No points for sources because there were no sources. Pro made more convincing arguments in a) trade b) government c) purpose. Here is how those break down. A) Con argued trade is a cycle that never ends, thus the meaninglessness of it. Pro responded that some goods concretely end trade at certain points and make some richer, thus trade has a reason for existing. Stepping back to Con's wishes destroys society was never responded to so it holds. B) Con mentioned government just rips away all meaning from trade in goods. Pro called it communism, but failed to mention how that effected humans as a whole. Draw on that one. C) Con only questioned the purpose of existence, but never substantiated why being a speck in space shows no meaning. Pro responded that survival is that meaning, filling Con's logic void. Pro wins that. So ending tally is 2-1-0 for Pro. I VOTE PRO. Good Debate.
