Anyone who lived in the 50s, 60s, 70s, 80s, and early 90s will all agree that the internet boom may have contributed alot of good in society, but the negatives outweigh the positives. I believe that a ban, if not a reduction of internet use can help the US in so many ways, it's exhilarating.

1st round will be just an introduction to the topic and a brief summary of opponent and I's stance.


internet- a global network used for sharing information around the world and communication
social media- apps/websites that allow users to share content with exclusive parties and to do networking
Resolution-Would banning internet and social media benefit society?
Pro cannot change stance to reduction of internet, for the resolution accounts for its complete banning.
I believe the pros easily outweigh the cons of internet and social media, and that a ban is unnecessary as well as irrational.
Social media=
If you argue social media should be banned as it would benefit society, then you are creating a paradox. This debate wouldn't happen if there was a ban of internet and social media. is counted as a social networking site as you can communicate with other users, add friends, do messaging etc.
