Motions:

R1: THBT sex education classes in schools should teach techniques for sexual gratification (including, but not limited to, anal sex, oral sex, mutual gratification and masturbation)
R2: Infoslide: Corpus Seperatum was a suggested UN plan for Jerusalem. According to the plan, the city would be placed under demilitarized international regime controlled by the UN, and offer free access to both Israelis and Palestinians

Motion: THBT Israel should adopt the Corpus Seperatum plan

R3: Infoslide: Carrie Lam is the Chief Executive of Hong Kong, elected by an Election Committee. Carrie Lam oversees the HKSAR Government. Prior to her role as the Chief Executive, Carrie Lam worked for Hong Kong’s civil service since the 1980s. She has received some backing from Beijing, since she assumed the role of Chief Executive on issues including Anti-Extradition Bill and the recent National Security Bill, which was met with mass protests.

Motion: THBT Carrie Lam should resign

R4: THBT the US should require the NRA to pay reparations to victims of gun violence

R5: Infoslide: For the purposes of this debate, a savior sibling is a child who is born primarily for the purpose of providing an organ or cell transplant to a sibling who is affected with a fatal disease

Motion: THW ban the creation of saviour siblings

QF: Infoslide: You are a middleclass, young adult with a family and a stable job. You recently found out the world you live in is an augmented reality called the Matrix, controlled by AI which has revolted against humans. The world outside is dominated by the hostile AI, but its power external to the Matrix is limited by the physical reality (e.g. it needs to physically find a person in order to locate them, and needs to physically catch them to harm them). You are offered a red pill that will take you out of the Matrix into the real world, and a blue pill that will make you forget the realization all together and return to your virtual life as though nothing happened. Either choice is irreversible, and you only get one pill which can’t be shared with others

Motion: THW take the blue pill over the red pill

SF: THBT India should join ASEAN

Pro-Am F: Infoslide: Silicon Valley Culture refers to a workplace culture which encourages the reduction of corporate regulatory structures and hierarchies within a company and the maximisation of individual employees’ freedom in their working habits. It does not refer to solely firms in Silicon Valley or the tech industry.

Motion: THR the rise of Silicon Valley culture

F: Infoslide: “Dangerous spaces” refer to formal spaces in university campuses where all university protocol governing speech does not apply, so long as the speech produced is not disseminated to individuals outside such spaces

Motion: THBT universities should establish “dangerous spaces”
