Pro

Master is your biggest enemy do you agree..?..because i do not..
yay842

Con

I'm going to assume that Pro is arguing that Master is not your enemy, so I will argue that Master is your enemy.
So I will take the Con side that Master IS your enemy. I will give reasons and explain why in the next two rounds.
Good luck to my opponent, I hope this will be a fun debate, and Godspeed to the both of us. :)
Debate Round No. 1

Con

Here are some reasons/examples why I think "Master" is your enemy.

1. Some masters are mean. This is an example during the period of slavery. When the black people were getting whipped by the slave owners, I'm pretty sure that they hated their master. To the slaves, it may seemed as their master was their enemy.

2. Another example is Obi Wan Kenobi to Anakin Skywalker. What once was his master, Obi Wan Kenobi soon become the enemy of Anakin, later Darth Vader.

3. They say that your Master is your greatest enemy (besides yourself). Your Master, your guider, your mentor, your teacher, he is the one who will raise you to become the one to eventually defeat Master himself.

Extend arguments.
Master is your enemy. This is just my opinion. But the arguments stated in Round 2 are legitimate facts. These are my sources.

And you're arguing Pro for "Master is your enemy," and yet say that you don't agree with this statement in your first round?

i am talking in philosophical ways, a master nearby you will bound you in a knowledge of boundaries where in you can just learn and watch which can led you to be a good working person, but all you should know is you as to who are "YOU" and this only comes within, i also know what is the definition of a master, a person should be at his/her own.
