About "National Security (OPP)"
National Security is one of the most intuitive moral justifications for preemptive warfare. Because most judges readily accept the notion that governments are morally obligated to the safety of the country, national security makes a simple, easy, and effective value.
However, if you strip away the appealing rhetoric, most national security cases possess ample opportunity for the negative to deconstruct the foundational arguments and raise questions about the value and its efficacy in measuring preemptive warfare. In this brief you’ll find an abundance of arguments, applications, and evidence to run against any national security case.
