In this opening round Each debator will have one opening statement each followed by only 3 alternating replies and finally one closing statement.There will be no rebutal in this round.
As a guideline you will have 18 hrs to reply.However,I do understand that time differences and work play a role so I won't default anyone as long as the debate is moving forward.

1. You need to state the word limits (i'm going with 250 words for opening, right now)
2. You also need to state whether democracy refers to a) Direct Democracy, b) so-called Representative Democracy or c) both cases.
Without these defintions the deabte is nebulous and will be defined in my opening statement, which is totally to my advantage. FYI my argument covers "representative democracies".
Please reply ASAP for the benefit of Drunk and I.
