Best house at Hogwarts (Gryffindor)
Debate Rounds (2)
I must disagree that Gryffindor is the "best" house, and that Slytherin is the greatest house in my opinion.
Since Pro hasn't explained what their idea of best is, I shall go over my idea of best.
My idea of best revolves around what is practical for the outside world,If I imagine none of the events in Harry Potter occured.
Traits of a Gryffindor
Traits of a Slytherin
having the ability to find quick and clever ways to overcome difficulties.
This trait is highly useful in real life, as many of will have difficulites in the future. This is part of human nature, and If Slytherins are experts at this.
Cunning- Many of us think of that this is a negative trait, but it also can be a postive one. Cunningness is what helped us defeat the Nazis, which proves it can also be used for good purposes.
Ambition- Being ambitious is a a good thing. It allows us to strive for our best, and acheive greatness. This is related to bravery, which is a Gryffindor trait.
I'm not going over the other one, as these three resemble all of them.
Overall, I think these traits are more important to mankind, and these traits will make them a better person. Almost all of the traits that Gryffindor's have are very similar, and don't make the person better.
Con never refuted any of my arguments. So I will attempt to refute theirs.
Gryffindor is still the best house because it is good to be brave and it helped them beat Voldermort
Gryffindor wasn't the only house who helped beat Voldermort. The other three houses helped as well. Even Slytherin did.
SLyerthins are evil, and they helped voldermort kill innocent people.
Pro is generalizing the whole house as evil. There were good Slytherins such as Horace Slughorn, Severus Snape, Regulus Black.
Gryffindor also the best at qudditch.
Gryffindor is not the best at qudditch. It prior to Harry Potters arrival, Slytherin had won 7 years in a row. Without Harry Potter, Gryffindor is pretty bad. This is evident in Harry's first year, when he got injured and was unable to play the last game, In which Gryffindor suffered their worst defeat.
