New Debate: Topic

We often hear America described as: “the great Experiment in Freedom”.

Some would say that that “experiment” is now in serious danger of failing. That we’ve failed to know the difference between “freedom” and “license”. (The “envelope” is always getting pushed further.)

Do we have any basis for knowing the difference between the two, so that “The Experiment” can avoid chaos and the military dictatorship resulting?

I propose a new and needed National Forum, a debate to be scheduled in high schools and colleges and (wouldn’t it be great) for candidates to national public office.

RESOLVED: “The American Experiment in Freedom is in danger.”
a) Having no bounds to “Freedom” will produce the greatest society of human beings every imagined. b) Having no bound to “Freedom” will lead to a totalitarian state in which most freedoms we honor will be abolished.
