Well, it's pretty clear that both the debate topic at hand AND my opponent's sole argument are both rather incoherent. However, here's what I can gather: I affirm that the world is a dangerous place because of those who do evil (and) or those who witness evil and do nothing about it. Because CON has not provided a single argument (other than stating that they disagree with the resolution), I simply must provide 1 contention proving either aspect of the resolution FTW.

1. Those who do evil - say commit crimes - make the world a dangerous place. This is because they infringe upon the rights of others with malicious intentions. These crimes can cause serious harm to an individual, and/or society at large.

2. Those who do nothing to ward off and/or defend those who suffer at the hands of others have neglected their responsibility as citizens, or even fellow human beings. The logic behind this theory is that those who witness crimes or evil acts, and do nothing to prevent the harm caused by those acts, enacts a rift between the individual and society at large. Laws exist to protect fundamental rights deemed important by society (or a collaborative government effort). Allowing others to break the laws and violate the rights of others in dangerous as it can cause serious harm to both an individual and/or society at large.

In conclusion, even if you disagree with this short rebuttal and my contention(s) thus far, the fact that I have provided them + some sort of coherent explanation means I have out-debated my opponent in this round. Vote PRO.

Notes for CON- I need reasons! Don't just tell me... tell me why. Also, lose the caps, they don't do anything. Exclamation points are better than caps! Lots of spelling mistakes... run your speech through the spell checker at the bottom of the page if nothing else.

Notes for PRO- Great job, not that it was a tough debate anyway. Good reasons.

Notes on the debate as a whole- I hate one round debates! There's no rebuttal! PRO can't tell me why CON is wrong! As long as CON responds to all of PRO's arguments (which didn't exist) CON wins because I have no reason to vote for PRO.
