"The Bubba Scenario"
Debate Rounds (3)
The movie brought up the idea of a weapon which profiles and identifies potential threats in the blink of an eye and eliminates those threats with high-tech weaponry just as fast.
After seeing this, I wondered whether this had ever been discussed on Debate.org. So, I did some searching and I uncovered this:
The author dubbed it "The Bubba Scenario," obviously after himself. I would like to debate this "Bubba Scenario" with any debater who is willing to accept this challenge.
First round is for acceptance. Burden of proof is shared. Conceding the improbability of one or more aspects of the Bubba Scenario will not result in an automatic loss for me, as I admit some parts of it may be far fetched.
I await a challenger who is willing to debate the Bubba Scenario.
Anyhow, I shall begin.
1. Laser Weapons:
According to this link, this new weapon, though short-ranged, can shoot down a target in less than five-millionths of a second.
Also, there's this link:
According to this link, it is shockingly inexpensive to use the weapon repeatedly.
Conclusion: If the range of these weapons is increased exponentially, which is bound to happen, and many of these weapons are manufactured and deployed, these laser weapons will undoubtedly change the very face of warfare.
2. Our Government's Willingness to Violate the Constitution
Here's my proof:
3. The Federal Government's Ability to Track Us and What we Do
Well, for starters, our government already "mines" our online data.
Also, there is what is called "Facial Recognition Software"
Conclusion: Our Government (and eventually other governments) has access to laser technology (even if it's currently in its earliest stages), our government can track us, and our government has greatly increased its "national security" programs since the September 11 Attacks.
I await my opponent's response.
An NDD is a nuclear detonation device, which obviously entails a lot of control over society.
As far, the government has not used them as threats.
I concede every point mentioned, regarding weaponry technology.
However, this does not mean that the government will use these technologies for population control.
Many dystopian stories or fiction detail some variation of the aforementioned scenario.
Ergo, I believe that the Bubba Scenario was inspired by a far-fetched dystopian story that for whatever reason rooted itself in Bubba's brain.
As far, the government has not used them as threats."
I thank my opponent for clearing this up.
"I concede every point mentioned, regarding weaponry technology."
"However, this does not mean that the government will use these technologies for population control."
The following article sums up the constitutional violations of the Patriot Act.
With the knowledge that our Government does not keep its own constitution, perhaps we should question our faith in the Federal Government's goodwill.
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn"t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed down for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children"s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free. -Ronald Reagan-
I rest my case.
