Pro

Making products causes people to buy things that they don't necessarily need, Causing materials and energy to be wasted as well as the customer's money
kyleniel

Con

People have a right to produce and sell consumer goods and services.

I agree that people have a right to produce and sell goods, However continual production is in some ways unnecessary. Some products are made because they can be made rather than people wanting the product (known as technology push) this can lead to products being wasted. Other products are produced using continuous production such as cars, And with some companies able to produce 8000 cars a day. Do we really need 8000 more cars every day? It just seems unnecessary to continually make products.

Con

Just because it's unnecessary doesn't mean we shouldn't be allowed to do it.

Pro

People can do it and they should be allowed to, But as the statement says it seems wrong to do so ethically as the majority of factories pollute the air which is harmful to people. In my opinion it is morally wrong to do make something which is unnecessary when it causes damage to others or the environment as it could easily be avoided.

Con

There's a binary with many things, And morality is one of them. Either something is wrong and needs to be illegalized or it's fine and dandy.

Reasons for voting decision: I agree with Con but think they did a terrible job refuting Pro. First of all, in their last round they casually spew out the fact that moral relitavism doesn?t exist and it?s a binary thing. I?m not saying I disagree, per se, but that?s a very hefty argument to put forth without any backup. Also, the entire premise of the rest of Con?s argument is flawed. Sure, people have the right to generally produce and sell any products, but that doesn?t mean there can be NO government intervention. What about people who make cigarettes or painkillers or crystal meth or machine guns or nuclear warheads?
