SPinko and I will be debating in the finals of the Summer Tournament. Between these two topics which would you rather see debated:

1) Resolved: Detached Observer Theory justifies a consequentialist approach to applied ethics.

or

2) Resolved: Anarchism is, on balance, an applicable and sustainable social system.

I prefer number two since it presents a more direct challenge to...one of the member's ideology.:)

No idea what #1 is, so 2.
#UnbanTheMadman

"Some will sell their dreams for small desires
Or lose the race to rats
Get caught in ticking traps
And start to dream of somewhere
To relax their restless flight
Somewhere out of a memory of lighted streets on quiet nights..."

In the nicest way possible ^

I had to look through my notes (4 books worth) to try and find this, and i have about 2 lines on it. I have "inverse emotivism: don't take feelings of those into acc. take feelings of the impartial in acc. only" then question: "Intuitively or emotively repugnant? Same faults as emotivism".

If you're going to ask common people to take time out of their day to read your debate,...it only seems sensible, that you decant some of the philosophic jargon. A potential voter shouldn't have to go look up what you're talking about every 2 sentences. :/
