Motions:

R2: This house supports the use of extra-legal and illegal methods to provide wider access to knowledge (e.g. sci-hub, hacking Jstor, unauthorised distribution of files and copies)

R3: This house, as a progressive individual, would not consume the works of artists who have committed or been accused of serious crimes.

R4: This house prefers a higher education system with a large variation in education quality over one in which there is a low variation in education quality.

Info slide: Some nations have far more variety in the quality of their higher education system than others. Nations like the United Kingdom and the United States have a high variety in quality: some universities confer degrees considered among the best in the world, whilst many others are of significantly lower quality. On the other hand, countries like the Netherlands and Australia have very few to no excellent degrees, but the education at all universities is of a good quality.

SF: This house believes the state should lace our water supply with a chemical that homogenises people’s intelligence to the intelligence level of an average university graduate.

Pro/Am-final: This house prefers a world without alcohol.

F: This house supports the increasing secularisation in the world.
