In this link near the bottom it shows Drake (the person who created Yolo) apologized for creating this trend because people used too much.

So first off, burden of proof is on you to show that trends are going to keep getting more and more stupid as the years progress. You absolutely failed to do this by giving a flawed example that does nothing to fulfill your burden of proof.


Now let’s look at the definition of trend.


Trend - “a general direction in which something is developing or changing.” [1]


As history progresses so have society, science, and philosophy. For example, once upon a time slavery in the United States was regarded as normal and now it is seen as quite heinous. This is an example of trend, because we see how slavery progressed into freedom though time. My opponent would have to argue that progresses like these would be “generally regarded to as stupid.”


In addition, pop culture trends like what my opponent referenced cannot be generally stupid for they never would have become a popular trend if it truly were stupid. The general population must have thought “YOLO” was appropriate and therefore used it.


Overall though, my opponent must argue that humanity’s recent intellectual progress and our progresses of the future are stupid.


That truly is a burden of proof which is impossible to fulfill.


So first off, burden of proof is on you to show that trends are going to keep getting more and more stupid as
