In this argument I will defend the neccessity of human evils particularly a few big ones. Such as, Lust, hate, Violence, greed, and cruelty. No proof of your arguments is needed unless a statistical statement is made. My opponents will pick their own virtues to defend.

I thank my opponent for another opportunity to debate him!

I'm not quite sure where my opponent intends to go with this round just yet; It would also appear that my opponent must go first in this debate. Thus I'll simply use this round for acceptance, and for laying out the virtues I will defend.
It seems most logical to defend the direct opposites of what my opponent intends to defend; thus I will argue that chastity, love, pacifism, generosity, kindness, and the polar opposites of whatever else my opponent decides to argue are more preferable to their vice counterpart.

I am also excited at the prospect of having a purely logical debate (with the noted exception of empirically based arguments).

Good luck to my opponent, and with that I hand the debate back over to them!

Reasons for voting decision: Pro apparently thought that slothfulness was a virtue, considering his forfeits...too bad, it cost him the debate and a victory for him...
