I would like to briefly thank my friend for posting this argument, and to state that to negate this resolution, one simply has to refute one of its two parts, those parts being that Morals are universal, and Morals come from one's society. In this topic, it is important to define morals right out of the gate, as it is such a pivotal point in this debate.

This guiding philosophy is not shared from even person to person, and therefore can not be taught from society as a whole, and therefore I urge a strong negation to the resolution.
