Reason:

PRO did not make a single spelling mistake. He made no flawed argument or logical fallacy. He did not even use an unreliable source. That's impressive efforts.

CON never rebutted any argument from PRO. He never even answered PRO's questions or challenged his logic. Pretty low-tier debating I would say.

Elsewise, ff.

Reason:

The debate is clearly won by Con due to full forfeit by Pro.

However, in R1, Con presented the argument in meticulous detail that love has greater influence on others than fear, even to the extent of loving one's self. The argument is successfully bolstered by sufficient scholastic sourcing to carry the day, even there were some argument from Pro.
