Topic: "Kim Jong Il is the greatest thinker in human history"
My position: Pro

Most people are not familiar with Kim Jong Ils thought. He is the greatest thinker because he united military first policy and ideology with struggle of people for independence.

My argument:
Kim Jong Il is the greatest thinker because:
1) He used military first policy
2) He argued for independence of all people
3) He argued for Socialism
4) He argued for ideological struggle being important in building Socialism
5) He argued that production and economy need to be built to support military
6) He proved in practice that his system is able to resist sanctions, pressure and all challenges.

Some of Kim Jong Ils quotes:

"As the history of revolutionary wars shows, a revolutionary army which is in firm politico-ideological readiness, though armed with inferior weapons, can fight and defeat an enemy equipped with the latest arms."

"Whether one has a correct outlook on the revolution or not is revealed particularly at a time of severe trials. People reveal their true nature in adverse circumstances."

"There are big and small parties, big and small countries, and economically developed and underdeveloped peoples in the world, but all parties, all countries and peoples are equal and independent. No one should encroach upon the sovereignty of others and no one should tolerate encroachment on one`s sovereignty."

"Today, the peoples of newly-emerging countries are struggling against the US and other imperialists' policy of aggression and plunder, in defense of their national sovereignty and natural resources, and in order to put an end to the old economic order by which few capitalist powers have exploited and plundered at will the majority of the countries and people's throughout the world, and to establish a new fair world economic order."

"Man is a social being with independence, creativity and consciousness."

"The manoeuvres of the US imperialists for 'globalization' and 'integration' are aimed
at turning the world into what they call a 'free' and 'democratic' world styled after the United States, and thus bringing all countries and nations under their domination and subordination."

“Our Party's Songun-based revolutionary leadership, Songun-based politics, is a revolutionary mode of leadership and socialist mode of politics that gives top priority to military affairs, and defends the country, the revolution and socialism and dynamically pushes ahead with overall socialist construction by dint of the revolutionary mettle and combat capabilities of the People's Army.”

"My argument:

5) He argued that production and economy need to be built to support military
6) He proved in practice that his system is able to resist sanctions, pressure and all challenges."

My argument:

Kim Jong II can't be the greatest thinker. That would mean no one surpasses or reaches that level of thinking.

I use the military first.
I argue for independence of all people.
I argue for Socialism.
I argue for ideological struggle being important in building Socialism.
I argue that production and economy need to be built to support military.
I prove in practice that this system is able to resist sanctions, pressure and all challenges.

In light of these facts, this person cannot be the greatest as myself as well as anybody else has a way to prove , practice, exercise and argue at the same level.
