The Motions:

R1: Infoslide: ‘Statistical risk assessment’ uses computer algorithms that process past incarceration data to estimate someone’s likeliness to reoffend based on their easily accessible characteristics (e.g.: past incarceration, income, race, religion, age)

This House would prohibit the use of statistical risk assessments when criminal courts are making sentencing decisions.

R2: Infoslide: An antihero is a protagonist in a story who lacks conventional heroic qualities and attributes such as idealism, courage and morality. Although antiheroes may sometimes perform actions that are morally correct, it is not always for the right reasons, often acting primarily out of self-interest or in ways that defy conventional ethical codes. e.g. Harley Quinn, Cat Woman, Deadpool.

This House prefers the antihero as the dominant female archetype in literature and movies.

R3: Infoslide: The company Bridgewater operates on the practice of Radical Transparency. This means that internally every conversation, meeting and report is recorded and available to all employees upon their request. Additionally employees are required to rank each interaction and collaboration with one another, effectively leaving the review of each other. 

This House believes that companies should adopt the practice of Radical Transparency.

R4: Infoslide: Two schools under one roof is a term for schools in Bosnia and Herzegovina based on the ethnic segregation of children. Children from different ethnic groups, attend classes in the same building, but physically separated from each other and taught separate curricula.

This House would immediately abolish Two Schools under One Roof.

R5: Infoslide: Payday loans are short-term unsecured loans given to borrowers in immediate need of cash. The interest rates on these loans can reach several hundred percent per year.

This House would ban payday loans.

SF: This House prefers a world where people do not enter romantic relationships before they turn 18.

F: This House prefers a 2nd term of Donald Trump presidency over a Bernie Sanders presidency.
