Should originality always be favoured above conformity
Debate Rounds (3)
"Originality or an aspect of created or invented works, from fragments and shards, should always be favoured over blind acceptance."
The above comment is just restating the resolution, rather than actually supporting the resolution. For this reason, the above is not sufficient support.
"My argument focused on the fact that originality, above all resolves in toil and hard work to persist an accurate, yet an out of the ordinary response to create a genuine infrastructure."
The resolution states that originality should always be favored. What if you are going to get jailed for not paying taxes? Obviously, this would not be favored by most humans. This is why most people conform and pay taxes when they are told, instead of being "original" and not paying taxes (not paying taxes is not favorable, because of the hit it would put on infrastructure and social programs). Because I named a situation where originality would not be favored over conformity, the resolution has been negative because it says originality is always favored.
"The argument that you have presented has formed quite an impression on myself, however I would personally like to remind you that conformity does not always fall into practice when dealing with concepts and theories, as well as real life scenarios and decisions. Meaning that though daily obligations that are due need not have a singular method."
The above has no bearing on the resolution.
"Focalizing on that point, I would like to bring up the case of the invention of aviation. The Wright brothers, a bifold of dreamers who believed in another method of transportation. Their persistency and dedication towards a goal that was original and not conforming to previous structures and models that faltered in their own fashion. The result was a primordial yet effective model that proved itself as a worthy invention and beginning in the world of aviation. Based on this evidence I present the statement that originality should always be favoured above conformity."
Naming one situation where originality is better, does not show that originality is always better. That is a non-sequitir. All I needed was one example where not being "original" is favored, in order to show that originality isn't always to be favored over conformity. Since my example has not been refuted, the resolution has been negated.
