Well, If I may, I just want to quickly say thank you to The Vagabond for setting up these series of debates and also of course thank you to the judges
as well for taking on the monumentous task of managing both the senior and the junior debate tournaments at the same time. Also, good luck to my
opponent, abe froman. I'm hoping we can both create a fun, fascinating, well thought out and of course enlightening debate for all. I thank you and
Now, the chosen topic of debate today is ""The Powers That Be" are conspiring to eliminate the majority of Earth's human population.”
statement which in my mind is without a doubt correct and without a doubt occurring in today's world, although that being so it's something I shall
most definitely come to (hopefully) prove to you all soon enough, firstly though, let's examine exactly
what our topic means
and my opponent in this debate in the hope of fully understanding our chosen topic on the whole a bit better and so we can avoid any kind of confusion
in the future.
What I'm referring to in particular here is of course the subjective nature of the phrase, "The Powers that be" (from now on in this debate, it
will be referred to by me as TPTB) and what it could/does mean. Well, please let me enlighten, TPTB
: The powers that be (phrase) refers to any
one group that holds an element of power over a certain entity. Hence the name, The Powers.. That Be.
Yes, but I hear some ask, "well, what does THAT
mean??" Well, TPTB, upon the definition above of holding power over a certain entity could
strictly refer to anyone who holds X
amount of power in such a way. Commonly used however by Conspiracy Theorists (myself included) to refer to
any one government, or a power even higher than that perhaps. (as they are the ones in power over the rest of the populace in regards to said
This is not what we're here to debate though, the fact that de-population on any scale IS
occurring (which it most certainly is), I'm here to
prove (and for my opponent to dispute) that the majority of persons on earth today are
being prepared to be "eliminated" thanks to some sort
of higher power source such as the NWO, one whom has more power than simply controlling one governing body effecting a small scale of citizens in the
whole grand scheme of things. Reason being, they are the ones who can affect the majority
rather than the few as they are those in said higher
position, not a simple head/leader of a state. So to summarise, the higher the power figure, the more influence they can hold, the more they can
affect the population in anyway deemed necessary...Not the fact that de-population can and does occur
So, now to fully adhere to our chosen debate of ""The Powers That Be
" are conspiring to eliminate the majority of Earth's human
population.” , I ask myself, my opponent and all those reading now, who is this "power" that's supposedly in charge of this world and why would
they want to de-popularise earth?
Well, before continuing, let's take a look at the situation of earth today in somewhat of a logical manner shall we, and please do excuse me for
perhaps sounding rather grim here, but, sure one can look at the world with a view of undying love, a view that everything is fine and a view that
everyone is absolutely equal for example, and those of us who could even think of suggesting de-population are those who have no place in society and
are to be frowned upon. etc. etc.
Well that's very much so wrong and I certainly do disagree; I'm not simply going to pretend everything is indeed fine as it most certainly is not.
The world we live in in its current state quite frankly is ridiculous. and sure, some may cry murder when the question "do we need de-population?"
arises but is it such a far out there question? I mean, is it more humane to keep someone alive when they are suffering from endless tremendous pain,
or is the humane thing to do ridding them of their pain? The first is clearly the obvious answer. Now, Is it humane to let things carry on the way
they are and watch as the citizens of earth literally breed themselves into oblivion? Personally, I think not and to think otherwise means you're
living in ignorance.
I say to those who oppose de-population, take emotion or personal beliefs and preferences out of the equation and what do you have? I'll tell you,
you have one simple answer, an answer which comes about because it's the only logical explanation to a problem with one issue. The issue is
Overpopulation and the answer is de-population. It's that simple.
Now, I ask, the many reading this debate, what is
the current population?
Well, once again, please do let me enlighten here. The answer is (unfortunately) approximately (at this exact moment of writing) around 6,884,722,500
citizens. Today alone we have around a net growth of approximately 170,000. We're even said to hit around 10 and a half billion by 2050! Now, can
you, my opponent, really tell me, the readers and the judges that this is a good thing? Can you really tell us all that nothing about this should be
Bearing the current population in mind, let's have a look at around how many people we have suffering from a lack of food and water, and please also
bear in mind this is a statistic coming from a world that's going to be by far
better off now, than in a mere 40 years time. The answer is
approximately 1,029,472,500 malnourished individuals alone, not forgetting we also have around 1,446,205,000 citizens with no access to safe
drinking water. So, again my opponent, can you really tell the readers that the world in its current state, with so many people suffering, is indeed a
good thing? Surely the solution would be to cut shorter the population meaning more food and water for everyone? after all, As of right now we're
waaay too over stretched and the situation is only
going to get much
worse as facts show.
We're even running on a system right where we have around 121,923,800 births this year so far and only 53,276,300 deaths. Scary statistics I think
you'll agree. Unfortunately for my opponents position though, that sadly is not all.
Take a look at our current needs..Currently we have around 15,000 plus days till the complete demise of oil! (roughly translated to mean Approximately
41 years) and we have around 60,000 plus days till the end of gas (roughly translated to mean approximately 164 years) and finally we have around
151,000 plus days till the end of coal. (roughly translated to mean around 413 years[/url]. Again very scary statistics indeed, especially since these
statistics are catered for a massively small world compared to where we will be in the future if things remain the same. A world where less energy
must be shared through more hands.
So it's very VERY safe to say that as of right now, the world here we live is needs a a massive overhaul. I mean look at all those poor individuals
starving, thirsty or living without a home. The world simply isn't big enough for the masses and again, it must be stressed, we're getting much
bigger, all the time. Some sort of action SHOULD
be done to ensure that we have the fairest world for all individuals, not just those fortunate
enough to live/be born in some of the most rich or advanced locations on earth.
Sure, De-population isn't and may never be a wanted or favoured idea, especially by the many, but that doesn't mean it's not the best or fairest
one. It simply guarantees a safer and fairer world for all, but because emotion sets in, we simply give into our own demise. Well, that's what most
individuals do today, but, not those ruling the world it would seem. I propose that de-population is indeed occurring and it's all around us for you
In fact, speaking of such a thing, It's actually blatantly obvious when anyone looks into it. Those very people who are said to be in charge even
seemingly admit it themselves! Take a look at this link for example:
(*2*) Please click here..
“In order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day. It is a horrible thing to say, but it is just as bad not to
“A total population of 250-300 million people, a 95% decline from present levels, would be
You see, it's painstakingly obvious for all to see.
I say to those in power, namely the New World Order, that de-popularising the earth isn't simply something that IS being done, it's something that
MUST be done to ensure a world that's capable of supporting an advanced species such as our own. That being so, In this debate, I plan to fully show
why the act of de-popularising the world is indeed occurring, how it's occurring and I shall also show where it's occurring from the source of the
very own Powers That Be.
I thank you...
Do you think the world right now is overpopulated?
What would you suggest be done to tackle the future problems we're facing such as energy, food and water crisis’s caused by the rise of
Do you care about those who are without food or clean water?
Do you personally believe in the existence of the N
"The Powers that be": Who do you personally believe is that power in the grand scheme of things?
I eagerly await your OP.
