Inaction in the face of injustice makes an individual morally culpable.

Danielle
That1User

Congratulations to That1User on making it to the final round of bsh1's Unique Topics tournament! I appreciate your patience in the delayed challenge, and I look forward to a very thought provoking discussion. As far as I can tell, the resolution is self-explanatory and the definitions are standard. I would like to disqualify the use of semantics. For example, a person being inactive due to physical or mental handicap is not sufficient. I expect my opponent and the audie...

How does ViceRegent rationaly know truth from fiction

Dirty-Morgs
FaustThe21st

IF YOU ARE UNABLE OR UNWILLING TO READ THIS WHOLE POST AND THEN RESPOND TO THE SINGLE QUESTION IT ASKS, GO AWAY. I FIND IT HILARIOUS THAT VICEREGENT KEEPS VOMITING WORDS AND YET HAS NOT ANSWERED MY Q. ViceRegent loves to live under the delusion that he is the guardian of rationality. But how can he hold this title when he cannot even articulate a rational way to know truth from fiction. If he cannot do this, he is literally ignorant and the i...

Logic should be taught at a younger age

J2mags
robin.murphy1999

I believe that Logic should be taught at a much younger age to improve critical thinking, arguments, and to open the door to different career choices such as programming and mathematics. A more educated populous is also good because people become more open minded and open to differing viewpoints. America seems to be lacking in these areas as shown by our world ranking for education and loss of more advanced jobs such as programmers and doctors. Our current polarization when it comes to social is...

Save One Life? Or Save Three Lives?

mostlogical
PowerPikachu21

Should you rescue three people if it means one person will die? Or should you choose to rescue one person if it means three people will die? Here is a scenario, you are on a boat with no ladders, four people are going to drown unless you throw a life buoy, but you only have one life buoy! Should you throw it to one person, and let three drown? Or throw it to the group of three on the other side of the boat so that only one person drowns? I will argue that the life buoy should be thrown tow...
