THW use the "thinning" over randomly picking people
In the year 2150, Earth is drained of resources and is severely overpopulated. The only option is to decrease the population drastically. Countries have signed a multilateral mandate to eliminate 5 per cent of their population every year in whatever way they want. "The Thinning" is a standardized test that people who graduate from high school have to take, in which the lowest performing students are culled.

THW remove the god from the bubble
You are an astronaut who discovered a man living in a bubble on the moon. You find out that because of the bubble, he became an immortal god and his actions control and change the course of the universe. However, he does not believe you and for this debate, he never will. You have the option of removing him from the bubble, which makes him mortal, and sending him back to earth on your ship. However, because of limited resources, doing so means that you will be stuck in the bubble and will be the god instead.

For the purposes of this debate, there exists an afterlife accessible to all living organisms in the world. The living world is not aware of this afterlife existing. Whenever organisms die, they are given a choice to either reincarnate into any new living organism in whatever time zone they wish, but they will forget all memories from the past (and the afterlife) as if it were a new life altogether. Alternatively, they may decide to stay in the afterlife as a floating soul, being able to observe the living universe at any point of time they wish to observe. This choice is irreversible. To clarify, you do not remember dying should you choose to reincarnate, nor do you remember the choice you make in the afterlife should you choose to reincarnate
