|About Me:||Highly introverted 15-year-old; joined DDO in early 2015. INTJ-A personality.|
|Activities:||I debate in the Asian and British parliamentary formats. I spend my free time writing on various political issues and philosophical themes, simply reading the forums or starting a debate on DDO, attending quiz bowls, and/or listening to music. I also write poetry that typically has the same tone as the mood I am in, which is typically gloomy and introverted.|
|Beliefs:||I am a left-wing libertarian, and firmly believe that the objective of government is to maximize the liberty of individuals. I am very socially liberal, in that I am firmly egalitarian, and support the legalization of drugs, prostitution, and euthanasia, among other things. I also hold major anarchist inclinations, philosophically, in that I believe the burden of proof is on the bearers of political power to justify their authority. Justice requires the recognition of animal rights. Nordic capitalism is probably the best economic system. Ideally, however, I'd support anarcho-syndicalism/socialism.|

Resolution: The US government should ban the private ownership of firearms First round is acceptence, no new arguments in the final round. No kritiks Firearms includes everything: rifles, handguns, automatics, semiautomatics, etc. Private ownership means outside of the government, all normal citizens. A ban would mean that the citizens have to forfeit already owned guns to the government, and are not allowed to acquire guns....
Each side posts links to any songs (one song per round; except Rd. 1). Feel free to comment on your own - or your opponent's - music. Judges provide RFD's based on which music they liked more. All votes should be "tied." Round 1 is for acceptance only....
I would argue no space is an impossibility. Trying to imagine no space is impossible. Because space always surrounds a point of nothingness....
