Utilitarianism: the doctrine that an action is right insofar as it promotes happiness, and that the greatest happiness of the greatest number should be the guiding principle of conduct.
Contradict: In traditional logic, a contradiction occurs when a proposition conflicts either with itself or established fact.
Perfection: The video game Halo Reach developed by Bungie studios and released in 2010; the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects.
Impossible: not able to occur, exist, or be done
Intelligently: in a knowledgeable and insightful way; cleverly.
Just clearing out the cobwebs on the ole brain and having a swing at something philosophical. Keep it polite and follow the rules. Failing to submit during a round or straying from the given structure is grounds for forfeiture. May the best win.
- prove there is a contradiction in the terms of what utilitarianism means
- prove that everyone (since its inherently contradictive) who uses the utilitarian stance is somehow unknowingly acting as a hypocrite (not truly believing what they say they do).
- there is a contradiction in the terms of what utilitarianism means
- that he has met everyone who holds the utilitarian stance in the world and (somehow) came to know they're all hypocrites
- PRO has found proof either to some form of universal subjective (which we all ought to follow) or that he knows some form of objective morality. I will leave it to PRO to let us all know which of these he will go with
