Thanks for the debate topic, I look forward to debating you. I will take the view-point that television should not be eradicated and that books should not be cheaper.
P.S. I assume you are talking about America in this debate

Argument 1- Eradication of television would lead to misinfmored citizens
TV is Americas main source of news[1] and denying them of that would lead to less informed citizens. While books are good sources of information you can't rely on them for up to date information (because they take so long to write)[2] like you can with live TV

Argument 2- You can't just make books cheaper
America is a capitalism[3] and you can't just forcefully flucuate prices. There would be no way to "make books cheaper." Thats up to the market

Are you debating only against TV or general technology?

some prefer books, some prefer tv... there is no good debate here. TV is to new to be able to tell the actual benifits and negatives and the benifits of books are completely over rated. This debate is just a matter of preffrence.
