Do you believe in government regulation?
Debate Rounds (2)
I believe most people know by now that the war on drugs is an enormous failure, started by Ronald Reagan in the 80's. Its the prohibition all over again right?
Furthermore the amount of black men in jail in the united states is unrelenting, breaking families up and institutionalizing these men is irrational.
they come out of jail unable to get a job... anyway ill let the opposer state their case. thanks for your time.
To be against all forms of government regulation is essentially to have no government, as any government would need at least some regulations.
So, there can be no higher power with regulations in place as that would just be a government. So, I propose the following problems.
Who would make them?
Who would enforce them?
Who would decide if these laws are ethical/moral or not?
Who would run them?
How would people be punished?
Who would get the power to decide such things?
Who would run the military?
Who would be able to declare war?
Who would be able to declare a state of emergency if our country is attacked?
I'm not requiring you to answer these questions. My point is, how could a country function without even a basic, small government with some regulations.
I retract my position in that my opponent has helped me understand some useful things about government.
Okay maybe government should not be abolished totally. I am for small government that looks after those bare necessities
that were mentioned.
Thanks for the ideas, take care.
