There should be universal, free childcare.

First round is acceptance.

By universal, I mean available to a large majority of children, with the main emphasis on preschool children.

By free I mean paid for by the state through taxes.


That's just not possible. Some LEDC's such as Ghana or India states cannot afford to pay for childcare but actually have more important things to attend to such as clean water and irradicating poverty. Even in MEDC's it is hard to do this as it can dramatically effect economy and therefore will effect other aspects of daily life.
Debate Round No. 1


First round was acceptance, so please ignore my opponent's arguments.

I hate KSI and here is why:

I thought about debating this with some idiot who likes him, but I can't be bothered.

First, there is no such thing as free childcare. Any product or service outside of the home costs money. Why should people who had nothing to do with bringing that child into this world pay for its upkeep. That is called being a responsible adult to take care of your own.I would have more respect if someone walked the neighborhood knockinhg on doors asking for handouts than voting in scoundrel politicians that will use government force ( law ) to make your neighbor pay for your lifestyle.If you are not mature enough to pay your own way, then keep your legs together and not visit your mistakes on the rest of us.
