About "Government Responsibility"
This case rests on an extremely simple premise. A government exists solely for its citizens. If you want to win the round, win that premise. The syllogism used to prove this case is outlined close to the end of the case.
“My argument is extremely simple: An obligation is a necessity. Necessities fall under government’s responsibilities. Governments are only responsible for their own people. If my opponent can prove any of these points wrong, then his side of the resolution is true. However, if all 3 of these points stand by the end of the round, go ahead and vote negative.”
This is all it comes down to. This is philosophical, moral, logical debate at its finest. No evidence needed, just pure logic.
If you’re extremely good at analysis, off-the-cuff rhetoric, and speaking, this case will rock your world.
If you prefer research, go a different route. But for those interested in morals as well as honing your debate strategic analysis skills, this case is what you need.
