Prices on abundant food at the mall=careless air pollution=extinction of man=infinite sleep

Selfishness pollutes the atmosphere, To sell fresh air to the highest bidders. . Like, Why would we take money for air when its abundant? (not that we do, But we do it with food)

The only way for a person to get money is by selling products. Sure, Some abundant food is expensive at the mall, But that is a way for employees to get money.

You want to eat and the employees want to eat. It's a win-win. No, The path we are on does not lead to extinction. There are other ways to get food, You can grow plants like tomatoes and mangoes to satisfy your hunger.

You have watched the Lorax way too much, No one will be selling air soon.
Debate Round No. 1

Pro

Air is abundant, So there is no difference. . We are polluting the atmosphere, To sell fresh air to the highest bidders, Cuz we need air like we need food. . The motivation is all wrong, Putting cheap unhealthy stuff in food is a good idea since you need money to eat, And eat you need. We need food before we need clean air

Paying farmers directly, Mall owners won't live as drugs over lords, At least not by making everyone slaves. .

the mentality is what i see as the deepest problem, Cuz we can not change by having to eat food. We work way to much, Cuz" we need food? But how much do we really need to work, And how have we lost sight of it do you think

People SHOULD NOT, Make money on food, We might as well tax people for the air that passes through their lungs

Abundant food means there is enough for everyone. . So just like there is enough fresh air, We won't take money for it, But we could if fresh air was scarce

You are assuming that logic. . As if i think farmers or transporters would work for free, You would have to be the idiot.

No i mean like, If there aren't enough potatoes for everyone, Then they would automaticly have a price

"People SHOULD NOT, Make money on food, We might as well tax people for the air that passes through their lungs" "Abundant food should cost money, That's my claim, It's okay to take money for scarce food. "

I'm sorry, But what you say in your debate doesn't line up with what you say here in comments. At least stay consistent on your stance. You say that nobody should be making a profit off of food and now your back peddling.

" Im not an idiot. . "

Never said you were I was just saying that your logic over the matter astounded me.

"So automatically if people took to much of certain foods then they would become scarce and we would fall back on what we have no, Which is paying for it"

I'm sorry, But the moment resources or food in specific becomes scarce is when all hell breaks loose and fighting for now said resources will begin. For example The Battle of Plassey. The British invaded India for control of its resources and it's trading routes.

In all honesty, I'm dumbfounded by the logic presented by @vi_spex. You haven't cited any sources that back up your claim that "Abundant food should be free at the mall, Cuz the path we are on necessarily leads to extinction"

Food has a price for a reason. People who grow food need to make a profit to continue growing food and to be able to have the necessary equipment needed to keep up with the growing demand for food as the population continues to rise. There is a fallacy within your claim which doesn't help you at all. If we have abundant food how are we going to go extinct? If the supply is as high as you claim then the price will therefore drop and make it more available to those. We shouldn't be anywhere near extinction.

On a side note if food was free then people would fight for the resources since they can't purchase is and claim the food as there own.
