The topic for this debate is "A truly global economy will render national governments obsolete and bring about a single, financially-based, global power structure".

Sublime620 will be arguing the pro position and will open the debate.
jpm1602 will argue the con position.

Each debater will have one opening statement each. This will be followed by 3 alternating replies each. There will then be one closing statement each and no rebuttal.

There are no limits on the length of posts, but you may only use 1 post per turn.

Editing is strictly forbidden. This means any editing, for any reason. Any edited posts will be completely deleted. This prevents cheating. A debate moderator must be contacted to request any necessary edits. Check your spelling and use the preview post function- editing will be minimal.

Opening and closing statements must not contain any images and must have no more than 3 references. Excluding both the opening and closing statements, only two images and no more than 5 references can be included for each post. No post shall contain more than 10 sentences quoted from a reference. Links to multiple pages within a single domain count as 1 reference. There is a maximum of 3 individual links per reference, then further links from that domain count as a new reference. Excess quotes and excess links will be removed.

The Socratic Debate Rule is in effect. Each debater may ask up to 5 questions in each post, except for in closing statements- no questions are permitted in closing statements. These questions should be clearly labeled as "Question 1, Question 2, etc.
When asked a question, a debater must give a straight forward answer in his next post. Explanations and qualifications to an answer are acceptable, but must be preceeded by a direct answer.

Responses should be made within 24 hours, if people are late with their replies, they run the risk of forfeiting their reply and possibly the debate. Limited grace periods may be allowed if I am notified in advance.

Judging will be done by a panel of anonymous judges. After each debate is completed it will be locked and the judges will begin making their decision. One of the debate forum moderators will then make a final post announcing the winner.

I’d like to thank to Vagabond for setting this up and the judges for taking the time to read all this. Also, good luck to my opponent jpm1602.

Opening Statement

"Give me the power to issue a nation's money, and I care not who writes the laws." -Mayer Amschel Rothschild

Straight from the horse’s mouth. A truly global economy is a wet dream for major corporations and world banks. It would be a feeding ground for corruption and greed. Just imagine it: a world bank that controls all of the world’s money. A global federal reserve if you will.

In fact, the process has already begun. We have the World Bank and we have the World Trade Organization (WTO), among others. The WTO is a prime example of how democracy and nations will be undermined. The WTO is wants to heavily regulate everyday things that people use. One example is water.

There would be no need for nations to exist. Currency from nation to nation would be the same. In fact, what you would end up with is a giant mega hybrid of a corporation/bank/government. This giant would heavily regulate everything we use. Hell if they could regulate the air, they would.

This has been the goal of some of the world’s elite families for years. I can produce quote after quote of the Rothschild family admitting this. Unfortunately, it appears as if they are winning the battle.

During this debate I will cover many of the steps we have taken towards a NWO over the years. I will discuss the repercussions of moving towards a NWO. I will quote politicians. They have not been exactly covert about their plans. They seem to discuss it openly, and with pride.

jpm1602 is late and will forfeit one post. Sublime620 may continue with his argument.

If I may, I'd like to forfeit my reply. I am no good at arguing with myself, and would prefer to see my opponent's stance before offering any rebuttals.

JPM1602 is disqualified. For lack of alternates and in the interest of moving the tournament forward, Sublime620 will advance to round 2.

Sorry that I won like that. I'll definitely be there for round 2 though.
