This was a debate tournament in the British Parliamentary debate format, the Berkeley IV 2019 was held (or started on) 1/26/2019. I tried to write down all the motions from all the rounds, but if any of them are missing or are wrong, please contact me and I will change them.
Here are the motions:
Round 1: This House Believes That housing activists in San Francisco should advocate for the abolition of zoning regulations rather than increased rent control..
Round 2: For nonviolent infractions (e.g. failure to pay tax or debts, possession of illict substances), THP an individual social credit system over incarceration.
Round 3: This House Believes That liberal media outlets should prioritize sensational reporting (e.g., Daily Kos, Young Turks) over neutral journalism (e.g., CNN, New York Times).
Round 4: This House Believes That environmental activists should reject eco-friendly public-private partnerships and insist on stricter environmental regulations
