Well...I've been waiting patiently, hoping to hear word from my opponent about their forfeit (to put it in perspective, it's a standard 3 days per argument setup, and I've waited until there is just an hour left for me to post), as they seemed initially very excited to debate this topic. But I've received no such contact...and they have not been online for 6 days now. I do hope they return soon, as the debate is still possible. Plenty of rounds left. I hope, wherever they are, they are fairing well.

In any case, extend my arguments.

Part 1:
Part 2:

Here are both parts. There was a portion in my first video that I accidentally left in (I stuttered and restarted my video, which I forgot to cut out) that I removed, so please ignore that video, and use the links in this post.

Again, I apologize for this inconvenience.

Part 1:

I'm still uploading the second half. Again, I apologize this is taking so long. This video is almost 20 minutes long, and each part is taking about 15 minutes to upload it seems.

My video is currently uploading, but my internet is slow. If for some reason it isn't ready by the time I need to post my argument, I will post the manuscript of it, and link to the video in the comments, when it finally finishes.

that reminds me of a joke :
Q : what's the difference between a socialist and a communist?
A : a communist carries a rifle

1st round acceptance, 4 rounds argument is alright with me. I'll go second. BoP is shared anyway, so it doesn't matter who goes first.

Also, if you could change "Socialism" to "Communism", I'd appreciate that. The two are very similar, but not the exact same thing, so it'd make things more clear.

that is to say if we do 5 rounds of videos, I will have to start (I don't mind) but I will also have to produce and publish my first argument before the debate is formally accepted.

it appears we'll have to do either 4 videos each or we can use round 1 for arguments and I will start w/ a video (before debate begins).

okay, so we'll do a 5 round debate. would you like to start or finish? I am apathetic. So we'll do 10 vidoes, 5 from each person? basically in the format of a debate.org debate. the theme will be broadly socialism vs capitalism. I will take the anarcho-capitalist position. I'll revise this topic and we can use this debate.

I say that because I'd personally like a 5 round debate. I like longer debates. 2 rounds just doesn't seem enough to me.

Reasons for voting decision: Con made a valid (a bit long, but still very good) R2 Pro F.F.'d Pro also had BOP. CON wins. (Just to be safe, next time put the video in R3, as some voters can be ridiculously picky.
