Virt and I will be doing another live debate tonight, around 11:30pm. A link will be posted here about 10 minutes before we start if anyone wants to join. For anyone who wants to see the debate but can't watch it live, you'll be able to see and vote on it in a debate here on DART. This is the second such debate we will have done here on the site.

The topic we are debating is: "Bystanders have a moral obligation to act in the face of injustice." Virt will be taking the Pro position and I will be taking the Con position.

Because I'm fascinated by this topic as it's a psychopath vs a narcissist with a hero-complex debate, it will be fascinating to me and that's the only reason I'll show up.

Warning, I am heavily Pro on this. I'm the type who just can't look away from abuse if I'm in proximity of it but to articulate arguments for that is difficult so the coward mentality will win probably in this debate.

Personally, I am Pro on this topic, but I'm taking the Con side. Personally, I think the Con side is harder, but that may be because I can only see merit in the Pro position.

The fact you are pro makes me sick. For the love of God if I am wrestling a guy with a gun who is on a shooting spree, do not come to my aid, just get the hell away and call the cops.

Really? Most likely most of the people that will come to your aid will be people that can actually help. The "flight" people will be gone running and crying. I personally have the protector personality. This personality also shapes who i am. I train, i know how to shot six targets in 2 seconds, reload in a second, and shot six more and repeat, i''ve been in many Muay Thai fights... traditional rules (i can snap a bat with my kick)... and, you would want me to run away and call the cops that will show up when you're dead? You've clearly never met a protector before. 

And if your worry is that someone running in would mess up your, whatever you're doing... most protectors read these situations better than others. Things slow down and their thought process doesn't get jumbled up by the adrenaline. Now... if it's one of this "flight" people that think it's a good idea to come help... when they consciously try not to step on ants when they're walking... then i would agree with you for them to stay out of the way.

I just don't want some idiot to get himself killed, I'm there to save people not myself. You have a good point though

I see what you mean... it's sorta in line with the idiot that will get in the way and kill both of us. I guess you really can't stop an idiot from rushing in... but, i suspect, i don't think there are any studies on this... most people that will come to your aid know how to handle situations like that.
