DementedAmnesiac

Pro

"Morality is the differentiation of intentions, decisions and actions between those that are distinguished as proper and those that are improper." I argue that the distinction between proper and improper behaviour is man made, and no action is inherently right or wrong, and therefore moral high ground does not exist.
TheMarketLibertarian

Con

The way I read that, the resolution is that no intention, action, or decision is inhereintly preferable to any other, and I assume my opponent will be arguing that it is fabricated and irrational, and therefore we should not believe it.

The initiation of force is never moral. The initiation of force is the act of one man initiating force against another, as opposed to retaliatory force. Force includes such acts as murder, theft, threats, and fraud. It is acting against another person without their consent.

I suggest no one cares much why you take such an erroneous position.

It kinda was obvious from the start that you were arguing for moral nihilism lol.
