Extreme sports should be banned
Debate Rounds (4)
Yes, I agree with Proposition that extreme sports can cause injury or death, but if some people want to risk it, it's their choice. Their family could be worried, but if the people doing the sports are confident enough, they could do extreme sports. Besides, family members should encourage and not discourage them.
Side Proposition came up with their case but they did not explain their solution, I hope I will see that in their next round.
Extreme sports athletes usually die because they are not careful enough and refused to obey safety precautions. Few had died due to the sport, as the percentage of having an accident while during extreme sports is low.
As I said before, I believe in the Freedom of Choice. If an act does not cross the barriers of law, a human has rights to do it. I will offer a solution to the small percentage of deaths while doing extreme sports. My solution is that the government can decrease the amount of people doing extreme sports but not ban it, as they should believe in Freedom of Choice (which many governments believe) and at least allow some people to do extreme sports, so the percentage of the dangers of extreme sport are lowered.
I think I should take this debate as I am more fluid and gave a good solution.
You said that extreme sports athletes don't think of their families, but that is a sweeping statement. Everyone cares about their families, no matter how not filial they are, and they will always remember them.
Proposition did not rebut some of my points and they are:
1)There is a small amount of injuries occurring.
2)The solution I offered, decreasing the amount of people doing extreme sports.
I think they are important and I should take those points.
Now onto the clashes
Clash: Which side gives the best solution to reducing the rate of injuries of extreme sports?
Under Proposition's model, the solution offered was to ban extreme sports. I do not agree as I believe in the Freedom of Choice. No matter how dangerous the sport is, no matter how concerned their families are, the athletes still have the right to do the sport. I think that the government can demote extreme sports but not ban it, as there is still some people who like to do extreme sports.
I think I should take this debate unless Proposition can counter my policy.
Rby forfeited this round.
Since Proposition agreed with everything I said, I should take this debate.
