Of course it is better to take risks.

But what makes you think that taking risks is unreasonable? We are Humans -- it is what we do.


"Is it sometimes better to take risks than to follow a more reasonable course of action?"

I assert that whenever we are faced with two choices, it's better to take the more reasonable choice.

Therefore, if we have a choice between taking some particular risk and doing something MORE REASONABLE than taking the risk, we should do the latter.

Sadly my opponent has not graced us with a response.

I again repeat my position that if we're faced with a choice of taking a risk and of doing something more reasonable than taking that risk, by definition it must be better to do the latter.

Vote pro.

Assumes risk is mutually exclusive with reasonable course of action.
Also, you took the wrong side.
