Case: A World Where Everyone Can Revive their Most Loved One.
- How will they revive their most loved one?
My opponent has specified, but it is not within the description of the debate. This makes it hard for me and unfair for both of us. Apparently, the button is given to the most loved one, by special magic. Assuming the size of the button is a regular keyboard button size. It will be easy to lose, meaning that a person cannot be revived if you lose the button.
Moreover, if it is with the loved one and they die in a destructive accident, the button will be destroyed and the power of it will be assumed to have lost.
Problems with this world:
- Not Everyone is the Most Loved.
Pro thinks that you can change your most loved very easily, which is false. We cannot forcibly change love or command or demand it to go one way. He simply states that if you want someone to live, you better start making them the most loved or they will die permanently. Once again, PRO’s demands are factually impossible.
Pro ignores the fact that we have defined the button as disappearing after one month. Since he hasn’t commented on it, I will continue with that fact.
PRO also states that the people who nobody loves deserve to die a true death, which is morally flawed as nobody deserves to die even if they are a social outcast.
Once again, not everybody is most love, the PERMANENCE OF DEATH IS STILL IN THIS WORLD.
- Murders can go unfound
CON drops this point. PRO has specified about the button placement.
- Murders are painful
Pro assumes that upon revival they will be fully healed. He has never specified this and is only assuming. The definition of “revive” is to return to life. Nothing in this states that every single one of their wounds will be healed, it merely states that they will be alive again. Meaning they will still have to endure the pain.
Any murder victim will be in extreme pain. He never refutes this and simply blows it off saying that most murders are not done by professionals which does not prove a single thing.
Let me make this clear, having your life taken away from you is both traumatic and painful. Being shot by a gun is hardly comfortable at all. Being stabbed in the stomach or being shanked aren’t the most comfortable experiences.
Most murders are not instantaneous if they are not done well. Consider the fact that most murders are not done by professionals like PRO has so gallantly brought up. Therefore they will not be clean and will leave the person screaming in agony. Imagine being a victim, being stabbed in the stomach in extreme pain, and then hearing that your murderer will be sentenced to a short prison stay.
Pro claims that most murders are done by emotion which backs up my point. If the murder was spited by anger, they will try to harm the person as much as possible.
I have not even covered the traumatics of being murdered. From the pain you will have experienced, you will have mental problems for your entire life, and while you are suffering, And your murderer will probably be chuckling as they got such a short sentence.
Even if there is an ability to be revived, there are tons of cases where there aren’t. These cases will be the determining factor of whether murder should be converted to a misdemeanor or stay as a felony.
Murder is painful, even simply reviving someone won’t cure the toils of pain they have been through and the traumatic experiences they have trudged through. Giving a person a short sentence for this much pain caused to their victim’s lives is cruel and laughable in the current justice system. Murdering someone is also a huge health detriment. Reviving only means to bring back to life, not heal all their wounds. If someone was shot in a place with extreme pain, they would probably choose not to live as the pain they will be experiencing is too great when they revived. Still yet causing a true death.
In conclusion, I have fulfilled my burden of proof. Murder should still be a felony, for the likely causes of true death, the amount of pain and toil the victim will go through, even if they are still revived.
- Not everyone can be revived. Permanence of death in this world still exists in many cases.
- Murder is painful. Murder if not done instantaneously is painful. Most murders aren’t instantaneous, and leave their victim in pain.
- Murder causes mental trauma. Having your life taken away from you will definitely spite mental problems you will have to suffer for for your entire life.
- Reviving isn’t perfect. You don’t get transferred back to normal. You will simply only have your life back. You will still be in extreme pain.
