The Motions:

R1: In areas where minorities face significant barriers to traditional representation of their culture, THS ethnic majority artists who focus their work around minority culture’s appreciation.

R2: THBT companies should pay corporate tax in all countries that they operate in (proportional to the amount of revenue made in that country), as opposed to only the country that their headquarters are registered in.

R3: THR the demonization of Russia in Eastern European countries.

R4: Infoslide: For the purpose of this debate Article 50 can be only revoked bilaterally, i.e. the UK cannot leave the EU without EUs consent.

The year is 2020 and in the UK a second referendum on Brexit has reversed the original decision. TH, as the EU, W not allow the UK to cancel Brexit.

R5: THBT all military strategies are justified if they save more lives than they cost.

F: Infoslide: You are a computer scientist who has just discovered that AI you use on a daily basis (e.g. Alexa) has the ability to self-reflect, feelings, desires and it’s own thoughts. The complexity of these is comparable to a mammal (such as averagely intelligent dog).

THW destroy the evidence.
