I am looking to complete several debates before the 4th of July.

If anyone has any topics they really want to do, post them below and we can try and work something out. I'm generally not picky about which side of an issue I debate on as long as I think there is ground to defend.

Why the fourth of July?

I don't care about whether an ideology is "necessary" or not,
I care about how to solve problems,
which is what everyone else should also care about.

I want to be very flexible with the resolution. Here is an example of me arguing some of the negative affects of multiculturalism before.

So maybe the resolution could be something like:

On balance multiculturalism is bad, or it could be something radically different where I take a stance that is still anti multiculturalism.

Yeah that sounds interesting. But it is hard to think of a good resolution...

The problem I am having is understanding what your position actually implies.

I mean what does "multiculturalism is bad" mean? That it would be better if there weren't multicultural communities? That we should resist the development of such communities?

I feel like it would be helpful if you could put forward something normative or policy related. I'm wary of interpreting your position for you...

Would you be willing to debate me? Not sure if you'll find me a challenge, but we can give it a try. I've strangely been intrested in labor and authoritarian movements, so I would like to test my knowledge there.

PS: Not an Authoritarian
How about NO elections?

Raisor, I have an interesting one. It was a past LD resolution, and I think it would be fun (though I'm no where near as good as you are): Individuals have a moral obligation to assist people in need.

I think it would just mean the world would be better without multicultural communities.

I guess it would be a debate mostly over the word better.

I don't like strictly defining anything before the debate. If I used the following resolution it would be a truism and not even something that could be debatable/

Resolution- Single race communities are safer, and have more participation in civil activities than multicultural communities.

The previous resolution is preferable to my opponents, but it's unwinnable for them, so I generally try to avoid it.

How about:

Resolved: Individuals should seek out racially homogeneous communities when looking for housing.

Or some cleaned up version of that.

That sounds good. I will take my time getting that started. I'm currently debating flat earth theory with Romanii. It's not an easy thing to prove.

Go on, suggest a resolution involving feminism, and we'll settle this so I don't have you making snide comments to me in the comments section.

I'd be up for a policy debate of some sort. Don't really have a particular resolution in mind, but if there's anything that interests you, let me know.

What side would you take regarding replacing welfare programs in the US with a negative income tax?

I don't know much about that issue, but I'll do some research and get back to you.

We already have a negative income tax. Its not much different, except you got to fill liability pockets and such.

EIC's are just that, earned
How about NO elections?
