Incredibly, I'm asked to contend that European will be fundamentally unaffected by demographic change for the next 95 years. After a few moments of
fumbling with my jaw on the floor I began to consider the topic in a harsher light:
"Demographic change" is presently undefined. It could mean statistical age changes, racial composition changes or anything, really.
"Fundamental change" is presently undefined. Politicians say stuff like this. What does it mean? No one knows. It's … up for debate.
And the above spans for a whole century.
Since my opponent can not simultaneously argue for an infinite number of positions, for purposes of this debate, I am forced to restrict the scope of
these definitions. I will consider demographic change in terms of racial makeup. Fundamental change will be delineated as European regional
policy change affecting all demographic groups in reaction to a specific shift in racial demographics.
My primary thrust will be that Europe, in general, is liberal enough satisfy the influx of foreigners such that it will never be forced to institute a
massive policy which affects all Europeans in response to demographic change. There are several perspectives which support this view; I will
elaborate upon this further during the debate.
