Round 1
Pro
#1
You're up.
Con
#2
Whatever topic you choose of course, it'll fit whichever side it falls on for you in tandem with the position preset .
  • Obviously, for the topic I choose, I will be con and Mall, pro. 
  • All the resolution entails is that I choose a topic alone. Consequently, once I have done so, I have won the debate. 
  • The topic I choose is: "THBT: North Korea is currently the best country in the world." 

Round 2
Pro
#3
Why is this country you say is the best?

What makes a country the best?


Con
#4
Why is this country you say is the best?
  • Mall is pro, so he is arguing that  North Korea is the world's greatest country. Here he misunderstands his own rules. 
  • Pro holds the burden of proof in this debate, and has not made a single argument. Consider this round a forfeit from him.

Round 3
Pro
#5
I'm sorry,my mistake, no problem. Why do you say it's the worst?
Con
#6
  • Pro has to prove that North Korea is the best country in the world, con does not have to show it is the worst. Consider this a full forfeit from pro as he has not even attempted to uphold his burden of proof. The resolution defaults to con.
  • While con does not bear the burden of proof, pro has given me nothing to even respond to, so North Korea is not the best country in the world because it ranks 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."
