I've never debated it formally (same with a lot of these) but Rawls is such a popular figure in contemporary political philosophy he deserves recognition.

I've only familiarized myself of the more popular theories through debate, but I'm not as familiar with his works as I wish I was. It'd give me an excuse to look into things more.

Rawls is flawed? Come on. Give me a human endeavor that isn't flawed.

When I've brushed up on it, though, I'll be happy to have a Rawls vs Nozick debate with you.

Rawls v. Nozick... condensed to the 8k limit of DDO. That should be wonderful.

We'll, I mean, have you READ the veil of ignorance? It's a fine theory, but that's all it is: theory. Nothing actually applicable, as it completely ignores natural human bias in the decision calculus.

When I've brushed up on it, though, I'll be happy to have a Rawls vs Nozick debate with you.

I might debate 3d with you; but I don't know when I'd have the time. Let's hope a miraculous vacation is fated for me this summer.

You should probably change the resolution to "Pregnant should women possess the right to abortion up until birth of the child."

They already do have that right.

2b. Persons possess the right of self-ownership

wtf?

I think you ought to re-word the resolution.
