People have the ability to exercise "Free Will".

I am against the notion that Humans possess "Free Will", and in this debate I will focus predominantly on the Philosophical standpoint of the possession of Free Will but will, when necessary, use neuroscientific evidence. My first point is the definition of "Free Will"; I take it as 'the ability to have done differently' - in that if I am able to go back in time, I would be able to make a different choice to the one I had originally made. Now that's cleared up, here are my main arguments:...

Philosopher Kings should rule.

Sophisto
NoCoolNameNate

Due to a troll sabotaging the first debate, this is a redux. Rules: quality sources, not quantity. Anecdotes are forbidden. New rules can be updated in comments. Arguments: Plato had the idea, but he"s not here now. Ph . D"s would be apt to replace dictators and prime ministers. Experts would be forbidden from developing an elitist paradigm. Educated and competent leaders are not only pertinent to global improvement and future survival. Greedy corporations are killing humanity. https://y...

Examples include the Spanish Conquistadors, the Aztecs, Rome, etc... 2. Current Day Events If you want to see if people are selfish or not, then I want to you to look at the Mai...

Inequality is not wrong. Equality is.

U_Manolo
sofiavicente

"All men ... are NOT created equal! Some are born swifter afoot, some with greater beauty, some are born into poverty and others born sick and feeble. Both in birth and upbringing, in sheer scope of ability every human is inherently different; Yes that is why people discriminate against one another, which is why there is struggle, competition and the unfaltering march of progress. Inequality is not wrong, equality is. We fight, we compete, evolution is continuous....
