The Motions:

R1: THS civil rights activists using disruptive or violent civil disobedience as a tool of protest (e.g. the Stansted 15, Gilets Jaunes/Antifa movements)

R2: THBT major film studios should substantially increase the number of lead roles for female villains in their blockbuster films

R3: Infoslide: A Unity Ticket in the US presidential elections is a third-party campaign whereby 1 Republican and 1 Democrat become running mates (seeking the roles of President and Vice-President together) and contest the election for the White House against the respective nominees of the Democrat and Republican parties. In the past, John McCain (Republican) said he regretted not picking Joe Lieberman, the Democratic senator, to form a Unity Ticket run for the White House. Recently, there have been calls for Joe Biden (Dem) and Mitt Romney (Rep) to form a Unity Ticket for the 2020 presidential elections.

THS a Unity Ticket by prominent members of the Republican and Democratic parties in the 2020 US presidential elections

R4: Infoslide: Filial responsibility laws impose obligations on individuals to provide a minimum standard of care for their parents, usually when those parents are elderly or otherwise infirmed. This care can include both financial and emotional support.

THW implement filial responsibility laws

R5: Infoslide: “Uncontacted Peoples” are communities that exist largely in isolation from global civilization. Contact is often discouraged because of their poor immunity to common diseases (among other reasons), although safe contact is possible with appropriate precautions.

THBT states should actively attempt to make contact with Uncontacted Peoples and provide them with modern medicine and technology

QF: Infoslide: A primate city is a city in which the majority of the cultural, social, and economic capital in a country is centred. They are often the most populous cities in a given country. Examples include London, Bangkok, Kinshasa, and Lagos.

THBT developing countries should actively discourage the creation of primate cities

SF: Infoslide: For the purposes of this debate, “Radical Freedom” is the view that every person has the power to alter their fundamental beliefs, desires, and attitudes. This is often contrasted with the view that our fundamental beliefs/desires/attitudes are fixed elements of who we are.

TH prefers a world with a widespread belief in Radical Freedom

Pro-Am F: THR the trend of centring self-destructive/antisocial characters as protagonists in media (e.g. Bojack Horseman, Rick and Morty, Crazy Ex-Girlfriend, Sherlock, Mad Men…)

F: Infoslide: “Non-overlapping magisteria” is the belief that science and religion describe fundamentally distinct aspects of human experience, and thus represent two different and equally valid modes of inquiry. According to this belief, scientific inquiry cannot, and should not, encroach on the territory of religious knowledge and experience.

THBT the scientific community should reject the view that science and religion are non-overlapping magisteria
