3pm TODAY: The Great Debate 2016 : Socialism v Capitalism
7 April, 2016
Herbert Wilson theatre in the Doug McDonell building, University of Melbourne
In the most exciting debate in living memory at Melbourne University, the comrades of the Socialist Alternative will be taking on the decadent capitalist pigs of the Melbourne University Freedom Society (MUFS) on the topic "That capitalism is better than socialism."
Affirming the motion and extolling the virtues of the free market will be the Melbourne University Freedom Society, represented by the following shills for the bourgeoisie:
John Hajek: Melbourne University Freedom Society President, Campus Coordinator for Generation Liberty at the Institute of Public Affairs, and well-known votary of Scrooge McDuck
Simon Breheny: Director of the Institute of Public Affairs' Legal Rights Project and former federal president of the Young Liberals.
Negating the motion and advocating a planned economy will be the Socialist Alternative, represented by:
Con Karavias: Former environment and social justice officer for the Monash Student Association
Hersha Hadkol: President of Students for Palestine
There's no excuse not to come along on Thursday, April 7 at 3:00pm in the Doug McDonell building if you're at all interested in capitalism and socialism. Everyone is welcome. See you there!
