Slavery can be justified

ChosenWolff
KhalifV

First round is acceptance. I will attempt to prove that "slavery can be justified". Slavery will be defined as the "Act of owning slaves". A slave will be defined as a " a person who is excessively dependent upon or controlled by something". I am taking this unpopular position to test an unpopular argument. This debate doesn't reflect my views. It is done for the purpose of discussion and higher understanding. R4 will be a "no round" unless I decide to extend it.

For this debate we will assume that Occam's Razor is a sound theory. My opponent should start immediately. As for the explanation as what is Occam's Razor I present the following: 1. 'we may assume the superiority ceteris paribus [all things bei...

the 'unlimited paradox' - the unlimited as an idea is proven to be a false

Paradigm

the 'unlimited paradox' - the unlimited is proven to be a false idea weakest point. the unlimited paradox states that an immovable object cannot exist at the same time as an unstoppable force. the fact that it cannot exist at the same time, shows that the unlimited truly doesn't exist. better point. an immovable rock cannot be created that can be lifted by an unstoppable force....
