I have decided that for my next few debates I will stick to mostly philosophical concepts (meta and normative ethics for the most part), unless I see a juicy debate in the challenge period just asking for semantics. Does anyone have any topics to suggest?

When in conflict, community standards are of greater value than individual liberty

"Hard Determinism" v.s. "Metaphysical Libertarianism"

That would be a great debate in my opinion.

knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power."

Perhaps I'd take that after I'm done with my debate where I'm pro for social darwinism.

Social Darwinism ? Herbert Spencer is an idiot he should've just reinforced comtes views, if he was right everybody with minimum wage should die. the most capable and intelligent members of society will survive the very idea of that is a joke that society will evolve from a low to high one everybody with a genetic disease should die is what he's saying.

I'm not actually arguing for it. I'm just arguing against the idea that it is evil. I'm going to take a total meta-ethical spin on the topic.

More like ought to have the right and just any standard definition of right it would be more along the lines of restricting freedom where it is inconsistent with the views of society since it is a movement toward egotistic pleasure at the expense of justice and morality although can we finish our debate first
