    The decision is for the Proposition: Ian Kim

    Reason for Decision:

    Good job!

    Proposition made it clear the framework/evaluation for this debate should be made on utilitarian grounds, where we look to provide happiness for the largest amount of people. At best, it seemed like the Opposition said that the banning might not work, which the Proposition responded to citing evidence, and extending the argument, and making it clear a utilitarian perspective is best. Therefore, I came away from the debate thinking the highest chance of providing happiness is with the Proposition.

    Overall, I thought it was a good debate, and there was a fair amount of clash and responsiveness from both. Good job! https://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/images/smilies/smile.gif
