Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Stormcloak Rebellion (Con) VS Imperial Legion (Pro)
Debate Rounds (3)
The Stormcload Rebellion is just, for Ulfric Stormcloak is only doing what he believes is right for Skyrim and acting on behalf of the majority of what the Nords of Skyrim are thinking. Skyrim deserves to be free and all folks of Tameriel have the right to worship any God, Goddess, or Daedra they deserve. I give the time over to my opponent after my brief opening. Good luck to you.
On the other side of the field, the Empire may seem to be malevolent at first, as you are given a poor impression of them upon arrival. However, without Ulfric's intervention, they did not require investigations upon Talos supporters, and many leading figures are true nords in behavior, including the High Queen herself and Tulius' second in command. With this reasoning, I find the Empire to be the preferable side in the uncivil war that a self obsessed Jarl with a power fantasy and an excuse.
I will now hide my amulet of Talos and promptly ask the instigator to return with his response.
The Helgen incident is an example of how the Empire's system is failing. Yes, it was the execution of Jarl Ulfric and anyone Stormcloak was to executed for their "treason." However, Jarl Ulfric was suppose to go the Cyrodiil to probably be trailed but General Tulius decided to take matters to his own hands and see to it that Jarl Ulfric was executed personally. Actually, he probably disobeyed the Empire because the Thalmor told him to do so, which tells us that General Tulius probably can't do anything without the Thalmor's consent. Another proof of this example is the fact when the Dragonborn is trying to make a temporary peace treaty between the Empire and the Stormcloaks, General Tulius showed up with a representative of the Thalmor and the Altmer wasn't even suppose to be part of the meeting.
I would also like to point out the fact that the Empire is weakening anyways. Tamerial was united during the Oblivion crisis until the Thalmor saw the chance and seize power of the Empire, basically usurping it. Also, The Black Marsh and Eslwyr successfully seceded from the Empire and the Empire failed to keep them part of them. Then the Argonians of the Black Marsh attacked Morrowind and the Empire was unable to help protect their province, which forced many Dunmer to become refugees, even among Skyrim, and are forced to live in slums. The fact that they are even fighting the Rebellion could be a desperation to keep control or is the will of Thalmor because the nords want to bring Talos worshipping back.
I thank you and my opponent for the time and I am anxious to see his response.
Duncan forfeited this round.
I thank you for your participation and patience in this debate, and may Talos favor the best debater.
