Motions:

R1: THS demeny voting.
Info text: Demeny Voting: The provision of a political voice for children by allowing parents of guardians to vote on their behalf; i.e. each parent of 4 children will get an additional 2 votes.

R2: TH, as the EU, would issue a directive to ban emission vehicles.
Info text: A directive is a legal act of the European Union, which requires member states to achieve a particular result without dictating the means of achieving that result. It can be distinguished from regulations which are self-executing and do not require any implementing measures. Directives normally leave member states with a certain amount of leeway as to the exact rules to be adopted.
Info text 2: Emission vehicles refers to motorised land transportation that produces CO2 (cars, lorries, motorcycles).

R3: THS the policy of taking away the children of Mafia families.
Info text: When Judge Roberto Di Bella returned to Reggio Calabria in 2011 – the home of one of the most powerful criminal networks in the world – he noticed that the minors standing before him in court were the children of the mafiosi he had put away years earlier.
The judge adopted a new approach: since 2012, about 30 “at risk” minors have been removed from their ‘Ndrangheta families by the juvenile court over which Di Bella presides. In some cases, they have been placed with families in northern Italy, and in others, have been put in youth homes or in the care of anti-mafia organisations.
In all cases at least one parent had a previous conviction.

R4: THBT feminists should produce pornography aimed (though not necessarily exclusively) at heterosexual men.

NF: Assuming technology exists, THW allow individuals to remove memories of their choice.

F: THB that major media outlets should seek to recruit individuals who openly support Donald Trump.
