About "The Singer Principle"
This is one of the most aggressive routes you can take under this resolution.
The premise is simple, if we’re able to prevent something bad from happening without creating an equal moral harm, we should take that action. However, this idea has HUGE consequences. One of those consequences is that wealthy nations then have an obligation to provide development assistance to other nations.
This case is pre-value and value-centric. Your resolutional analysis exists as a response to people trying to defeat your value by proving that development assistance doesn’t work. That’s easily destroyed because you’re only talking about the relationship between the two and deciding the obligation based off of that.
The value is hard to argue with. It makes perfect intuitive sense. Research Peter Singer and be prepared to defend his ideas.
