I (Pro) will be arguing that violence is a justified response to political oppression, my opponent (Con) will be arguing that violence is not a justified response to political oppression.

Definitions:
I. Violence: behavior involving physical force intended to hurt, damage, or kill someone or something. – google.com
II. Political Oppression: prolonged cruel and unjust treatment or control. – google.com
III. Justified: Having done for or marked by a good or legitimate reason. – google.com

All sources must be cited and values consistent.
Thank you, and I look forward to the forthcoming debate.

Con

Pro had the BOP so we will wait another round.

Just in case:
Violence is not a justified to prevent violence. That only propogates the very thing that is trying to be eradicated.


Vote Con.

Great. I work 35 - 50 hours a week, am a full time student and I am President of the Rotaract Club at my college. Debate.org slipped my mind this weekend. I apologize for not posting in time, furthermore "forfeiting" an opportunity to start this Debate. I should have something for you after my Philosophy homework is done.

Oppresion -> Suffering
Suffering = Good because it gives us a meaning to life.

I'm telling you, this is the A-Strat for the con.

As long as political oppression is not violent, no reason to respond with violence.

OUR SUFFERING IS GOOD BECAUSE THROUGH SUFFERING WE FIND VALUE IN LIFE.

If someone were to run this, I might just die and go to heaven.
Assuming that they ran it well.
