World or love?

Postby Azura Koboi » Sun Mar 29, 2009 1:13 am

Choose.


I think the question is: Which do you value more? The world, or your one true love? This is a theme explored in many books, and I finally decided to create a debate about it after reading Animorphs #41: The Familiar

Soo... if we're not supposed to discuss our choice, what are we discussing in this debate? Is it even a debate? I'm kinda confused about your objective, I suppose.

Azura Koboi, when you make a Debate thread you have to create a debate. This means you have to explain the question, perhaps give your opinion and, most importantly, let others comment on their choices; otherwise it would only be a poll, not a debate.

I meant... ok, never mind.

Sorry.

You'd have to be really twisted and selfish to choose love. Or hard done by. Besides, unless you want inbred grandchildren...:P

Loop-hole:

The world/everyone.

Because technically your one true love is part of the EVERYONE population.

Um, yeah, but is the world worth living in without love? What's the point then? To me, that's why it was one of those chicken v. egg type up of questions, for the lop hole you pointed out, and the loop hole I pointed out.

What's the point of life/the world without love? I suppose it'd be a bit interesting, to see the populations evolve.

OH WAIT, just read Azura Koboi's more detailed explanation.

Definitely choosing World. Yeah. One individual, for an entire planet with all those people and creatures? Ha. Not gonna happen. I'd rather let there be millions of loves occur around me than have just one of my own. Because I'd be sacrificing familial love, and a passion love and all sorts of love for romantic love, PLUS saying that I am better than the rest of the world. I am wording myself so badly today. But basically, what I am trying to say, is what sharkie said: You'd have to be really twisted and selfish to choose love.

nah she said your 'one true love' which implies person. And I for one don't believe in true love. My one true love could die tommorow and i wouldn't know :P I'm more of a companionship kind of romantic, I don't need perfection. My one true love could be a cheat- does that mean he's still worth it?

Exactly. You'd have to be a horribly selfish person to pick your true love over the whole world. It would suck, but come on, in the end there's really no choice. Plus, wouldn't it kind of suck to be just two people in a mass of dead bodies? How could you even think about loving each other in the midst of such tragedy?

UH, well... 2 things
1) My boyfriend would MAKE me give it to the whole world. He's selfless and weird like that.
2) The WORLD would include everyone, including your love, making this a moot point.

Assuming there isn't the loophole of 'The whole world= including him'. then we get what the debate is supposed to be.

To be completely honest, I know what I'd want to choose. I know that's shameful, but if it's someone I loved so much *sigh*. But, thinking sensibly, it would have to be the world, because humanity's survival is more important than your own happiness. But it would suck.

And if someone picked their love, I wouldn't begrudge them for it. Well, I would in that I would then die. But for the choice, well, they literally loved them more than the whole world. That's not necessarily a bad thing.

Even thought love is something that I want, people might choose common sense like me, and choose the world. I mean come on, would you give up a chance of getting one girl ( or guy for girls) while being able to get more than one girl ( or guy for girls). Peolpe need to use common sense.

Yeah, ColferFan1034 brings up a good point. As heartless as it sounds, there's no reason to assume your love is your ONE true love. There're other people out there.
