Thanks .

Something being the best particularly in this case is subjective. The best country, the best pizza, the best man.

So what would make the statement true or correct as a country being the best?

Whoever says that it is according to them apparently.

  • While holding the burden of proof pro has made no arguments for the resolution consequently giving the voter no reason to even consider his position., childishly sating that everything is subjective, as if this convinces anyone. This can be considered a forfeited round, and while the resolution defaults to con, I can make my case simple.
  • The role of the state/country is to safeguard the rights and liberties as well as to develop the quality of life of the people that constitute it. This is because without the people, the state cannot functionally exist, and without basic functions such as these, an end of human flourishing cannot be met. North Korea is therefore one of the worst countries in the world ranking 177th in GDP per capita which measures the average prosperity of every individual citizen. It is also among a collection of only 16 countries that "have the worst aggregate scores for political rights and civil liberties." North Korea is thus a volatile area for human rights.
  • North Korea is also "one of the most repressive authoritarian states in the world," making the region a volatile area for the human rights of innocent people and nearly half of their population is malnourished, due to its lack of development.
