About "Common Good"
We’re better together. That’s a Fifth Harmony song. It doesn’t have anything to do with this case, but it summarizes my affirmative philosophy pretty well.
The basic idea of this case is that assimilation best promotes the common good and thus should be valued above multiculturalism. While we should certainly appreciate the diverse backgrounds from which we all come, there are certain values and habits we must share if we are to have a productive society that benefits its members.
Under the criterion of interdependence, we’re arguing that within a culture we are and must be mutually dependent on one another in order to flourish.
As always, keep it simple and do your best to give the judge the big picture. Evidence and applications are your friends here.
