Blind obedience is a threat to morality

SaintHavoc
LB628

The act of blindly obeying a superior officer or refusing to question the actions demanded of one's self by a person of higher authority is a trait that threatens the inherent intelligence and morality that is within all human beings. A perfect example of the point I'm trying to make is the massacre in My Lai, Vietnam.

The only way property can be independent of the s...

Hello and thanks for reading the first debate I've hosted on the internet! To begin, I'll outline some framework. If my opponent doesn't present a convincing argument, I must automatically win the round, as I am negating the resolution and they must support it with solid evidence. I'll turn the time over to my opponent to present his or her first argument. I urge you to vote based solely upon the arguments presented here. Thank you!...
