  Let's just legalize all drugs.

Heroin? Meth? Crack cocaine? Speed?  Should it all be 'buyer beware'?  Why or why not??

  Animals are here for us to use and enjoy.

This covers farming and animal testing for make-up AND for the coronavirus and zoos and pets too!! Is it okay to use them if we're nice about it?? Or is it always wrong to use them for anything??

  Same sex marriage should be treating as any other marriage.

And, you can also go further to argue whether or not marriage should be exclusive to TWO people, or if polyamorous marriages should be allowed.

  Public bathrooms are for people BORN that sex.

Or you could argue the more controversial position: bathrooms shouldn't be gendered at ALL.

  The Government Should Control Access to Guns
Posted by: Snyder - 04-05-2020, 05:42 PM - Forum: My Forum - Replies (5)

When responding, make sure to clarify what KIND of control you advocate for or against!  (e.g. waiting periods, types of guns, age limits, etc.)

  HOW TO ARGUE EXAMPLE: Covid-19 is horrible.
Posted by: Snyder - 04-01-2020, 01:42 PM - Forum: My Forum - Replies (4)

It doesn't have to be a long argument, but it should be an argument for or against the title. 

Each topic is posted as a "thread" with a position as the title. Then you lot can post "replies" to the position, AND, with any luck, people will reply to your reply and then you can reply back and then they'll reply back to that and a DEBATE will ensue!!! I can't wait!!  BUT unlike Reddit and all sorts of other social media platforms, we will argue WITHOUT fallacious reasoning. In particularly, NO ad hominem arguments (criticizing the person instead of their position). Feel free to call out any fallacies!! That's the whole idea!

What isn't an argument??  

example 1: I agree. It really is horrible. Absolutely. I hate it.

example 2: Covid-19 is a virus that started spreading at blah blah blah place and time and all about the facts around the topic without any argument for or against the claim that it's horrible.

  Euthanasia should only be allowed with current informed consent.

Agree or disagree with the statement in the title either as your philosopher or yourself (clarify which it is), and with a good argument for your position! Then, as others comment, you can agree or disagree with their position as well.  Consider this position: "David Goodall killed himself at 104. He was not terminally ill, nor was he in physical pain. But as the Australian scientist and right-to-die advocate told the New York Times, “I no longer want to continue life, and I’m happy to have a chance tomorrow to end it.” And so he traveled to a Swiss clinic to die via physician-assisted suicide."

  Abortion should be legal at any time for any reason.

Also consider this position about "abortion" after birth: "At present parents can choose to keep or destroy their disabled offspring only if the disability happens to be detected during pregnancy. There is no logical basis for restricting parents' choice to these particular disabilities. If disabled newborn infants were not regarded as having a right to life until, say, a week or a month after birth it would allow parents, in consultation with their doctors, to choose on the basis of far greater knowledge of the infant's condition than is possible before birth."

  Canada should invoke the War Measures Act to confine us.

Agree or disagree with the statement in the title either as your philosopher or yourself (clarify which it is), and with a good argument for your position! Then, as others comment, you can agree or disagree with their position as well. 

Consider this argument, "The government in this pandemic is not curbing our liberty, given that liberty must be aligned with reason, in preventing us from perpetuating this pandemic. Your license is being hindered, but there is no natural protection of license. The government does not serve to ensure you can give old people the coronavirus to crack a cold one with ten of the boys, it protects your reason-aligned liberty."
