zoundmind

Con

I have viewed people as long as I can remember,they are good @ telling others how to live there lives even by force sometimes.
People should live there own lives,the hypocritical way I say!
I Can Prove that people suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Epicism

Pro

Yes I know I could get an easy win by just saying "I'm technically Pro to the resolution therefore my opponent concedes to my case" But I won't do that. I'm arguing against his statements, so this round don't vote for Pro or Con vote for Epicism or zoundmind lol.

First a definition, People: human beings, as distinguished from animals or other beings.

http://dictionary.reference.com...

"I have viewed people as long as I can remember,they are good @ telling others how to live there lives even by force sometimes.
People should live there own lives,the hypocritical way I say!"

1. By saying "people" your saying all of the human race sucks, this clearly isn't true.
2. To say people suck as the resolution means you apply "people suck" as a fact, but then you say "sometimes" which means not always, this conflicts the resolution which states "people suck" which means supposedly we always suck, the resolution should be "People sometimes suck".
3. To say we should be hypocritical your saying we should make fake virtues, moral or religious beliefs, and principles but you fail to state how in anyway we would benefit from "playing pretend" I like to call it.
4. Your opinion is not fact. Not everyone feels as you do.

"I Can Prove that people suck!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

I applaud that you can do so, yet you never did. There was never any proof shown and seeing how this is a one round gig you have no way of proving to us within the debate that "people suck"... Next time either prove it in the first post or make more rounds.

On to my arguments;

1. All of the human race doesn't suck, I know a good amount of very principled generous people much of them on this site as we speak.

2. I offer a site; http://cancerdad.blogspot.com...
And another; http://boxingoctopus.wordpress.com...
And yet more; http://pinkasparag.us...

I thank my opponent for opening this debate, I only hope It helps him structure his next debate better.

Theoretically zoundmind is Pro to the resolution but I'm technically Pro so don't be confused, vote Pro. Or if it makes more sense, vote for Epicism. (He meant Pro but probably hit Con as in Con towards people)

Thank You!

Lol I hate doing it too but in my past debates 75% of my voters were LD and they got all over my case about that so I had to post thoroughly to keep them quite.

I just wanted to post the definition of human to point out that zoundmind refers to all the human race, and not just a few choice people. Thought it to be overdone, yet necessary :P
