Released: Filed Under: Stoa Lincoln-Douglas
Everyone is unique, and everyone has something unique to offer. America was founded on the idea that out of many we are one (E Plurbus Unum). This case focuses on the many that make up the one. More specifically, America was established under the conviction that people should be able to live and speak and worship and think as they want to. Forcing people to conform goes against that conviction.
This case is built on the premise that a multicultural society is most consistent with the liberty that is the right of every individual.
The criterion of equality serves to make the point that a community in which people and ideas are treated as equals is inherently going to be a multicultural one.
I feel like I say this in every one of my cases, but keep it simple, and don’t lose sight of the big picture. This case is more on the philosophical side, but everyone likes freedom so use that to your advantage.
