Having a choice is not the same as being free

McPherson
greatman777

The negation will need to show how having or even making a choice is the same as being free. Democrat or Republican. Target or Walmart or Sears or Fred Meyers. You can have as many choices as are available. Choice could be a fancy word in reality for dilemma. Everyday our lives are distracted by so many choices. Sometimes, or if you're like me, often, it can be hard to choose between competing ideas or goods or whatever. This is not freedom. This is a crisis. By contrast - when I make mu...

Boundaries of this debate: - 1) Do not say that my suggested power is impossible since we are being imaginative and talking in terms of fantasy and not reality. Definitions: - Profitable: yielding advantageous returns or results.[1] Superpower: p...

(An argument in which the speaker deliberately ignores aspects that are unfavorable to their point of view) Burden of proof is shared. The Cosmological Argument Premise...

Shared BoP Is Elitist

Daktoria
Lizard

This debate is about the characteristic of burden of proof in public policy debates. To demonstrate, Con and Pro will pretend to be two people actually participating in a social program. Con will be a "strong" person. Pro will be a "weak" person. Before participation, Pro was skeptical of the social program necessarily being safe and respectful. Pro did not have evidence in advance of experience which proved the social program's unreliability, so was forced to "go with the program"....

We should euthanize all piranhas and vultures.

Evil1
toamatt26

Piranhas and Vultures are very dangerous animals and has been human kinds natural enemy since the beginning of Earth. All though many animals of many different kinds attack us humans all the time, Piranhas and vultures seem to dangerous and useless to be able to live. Scientists should create a deadly chemical to release in the air that only kill vultures. This could take years but the results when it works would be terriffic. As with the piranha problem, we should send bombs to only kill them....
