"Con has continued the interpretation of this debate as being a personal one. The judges will need to determine, does the resolution apply to an individual or the greater good."
This is a prime example of not understanding the words that we use. Is not what's in my best interest personal?
The individual or the greater good. What is the greater good and why is the distinction or demarcation being made?
This topic and the opposing side's position wasn't thought all the way through. It's turning out to be very paradoxical.
"Con must show that giving Trump a pardon would not be in the best interest of the country."
Am I a part of the country or not ? So why isn't when I show that somebody else's pardon is not doing anything for me, you shift who or what exactly the country is or represents? See I know this position is just causing you to shoot yourself in the foot.
The country suppose the represent the people. I must not be a part of the people. According to you it's like I'm not a person.
You said "country". That would include me wouldn't it? Now you move the goalpost and trying to make a demarcation like it's others except me or specific higher up folks instead of downtrodden niches that you know have problems for days regardless of what happens. Maybe you don't know. You should know that everybody has unique problems and it's not a one size fits all solution.
Don't be so hasty with the words "best interest" for the " country" because I'll make you identify who and what you're referring to.
" " A country is "a nation with its own government, occupying a particular territory." "
A county is nation of WHAT? PEOPLE.
PEOPLE MAKE UP A NATION. DO WE ALL GET THIS?
PEOPLE ARE MULTIPLE INDIVIDUALS OF PERSONS. DO WE GET THAT?
Stop being indirect with terms like "nation"...."territory"......"government".
You're talking about people. So because you weren't clear in stating verbatim it CAN'T MEAN ALL PEOPLE, I'll step in and say it is. Logically speaking each INDIVIDUAL person in the land of a nation or country is still that .
"There is nothing remotely infferable that the reference to a country could mean an individual needs. To be clear, to Con, the answer is clear. The word country does not mean an individual, and could never be inferred as such."
Then to whom or what is the term "country" referring to?
You were too vague with the term . Most of if not all your talking points was about political figures and the effects of them in particular. I don't recall one point you made outlining the benefit of every household, community, town, city, state, the youth or seniors. I'm more clear breaking down what this would mean when it comes to people then you. Particularly getting down to the essence of "in the best interest".
When we say in the best interest of the country, are we not referring to all people? Are we referring to people at all? Is country referring to the land, soil, grass and ants?
Ok what does the best interest of the grounds have to do with us? If it doesn't include people, you can let the ants and grass debate this topic.
"Con has not refuted any of Pro's reasons. I have refuted 2x the same argument from Con, that being a twisting of definitions of a country to the iindividual"
I refuted them a million times over with one single knockout punch. Nothing you said went to my best interest. If you fail to argue how this can help me , how in the world of countries that exist on it...can it help a single country? A country that is FULL OF INDIVIDUALS, individual persons that will respond such as I making a case about their unique issues probably the same or similar.
Do you see where you got stuck in your position?
"Let me make this clear. I agree with Con that the pardon of Trump would not benefit Con personally."
Oh yes, concede. Remember, it's not just me. Others that are in similar circumstances across the country will take the same stance. So you really should of buckled down specifically the groups of people in "the country" you were identifying.
You should of quantified your point when you say " the greater good". Who is that? How many is that?
I nail you down with those details.
"That is not the issue. Con's unwillingness to address the logic used on why Biden should pardon Trump is disappointing, and cowardly"
It is the issue unless you can prove I'm not another individual of the country. You said I was to prove how somebody pardoning somebody else would not be in the best interest of the country.
Maybe you should of said everybody but who I'm debating, in the best interest of the rest of us .
In this topic, you really should of been more careful with words. Just taking me out of it, we don't know every person's situation in the country to make a one size fits all benefit to the country claiming that something is in the best interest of all .
I don't know what is in the best of you, him, her, they because the unique problem necessitates a unique solution.
The truth is, this topic is stemming from a perspective lense that you haven't made clear of who actually you have in mind when using the term "country".
I exposed the clarity ambiguity fallacy from the opposing side.
