That governments have an obligation to provide housing for their people

Governments don't have an obligation to provide housing (governments shouldn't exist), but people have an obligation to reference, and thus in that respect ensure that people have access to free housing.

Mariel33: To have free housing, in the absence of the traditional structures, people wouldn't need to give up their identity. Being referenced wouldn't mean the outright discontinuance of social behaviours, however it would mean a heavy balancing act.

To build on the previous post, people are obliged to reference because if they don't, not doing so contradicts their not doing so - and contradiction above all things deserves to be stamped out.

Forfeiture of the Con side. This means that the "pro" wins by default.

Regretfully there was no opponent to debate, but I still liked making my arguments.
