If anyone is interested in debating me here are some choice of resolutions, I'll take either side:

1. Resolved: The US should start space colonization and increase space exploration

2. Resolved: Harms of terrorism against the US outweigh any potential benefits

3. Resolved: US hegemony is more desirable than undesirable

On the terrorism topic, do you mean the harms of terrorism to the U.S. outweigh the benefits of terrorism to the U.S. or do you mean that the harms of terrorism (targeted at the U.S.) outweigh the benefits of terrorism to the potential terrorist?

harms from terrorism outweigh the benefits (positive implications) of terrorism [in both statements the object is the US]. did that clarify it or no?

Essentially, terrorism does more harm than good to the US? That doesn't sound very controversial.

yeah pretty much. If anyone does challenge me on that topic, the arguments will be more controversial than the actual resolution.

How exactly are you going to argue that position?

I assume he means that "a world with the U.S. is the sole hegemon is more desirable than a world where it is not."

Basically that unipolarity (having only one global superpower) is good.
