Freedom. Equality. Independence. Family. Faith….just a few of the many “Values” we’re taught from a young age.
Some say that these principles have been under assault for decades, others suppose rather that we’ve collectively turned our eyes away from the moral ideals that our country was built on. Still others may purport any dialogue of concern to be political posturing around election time.
But what if these American Values never existed in the first place?
Brother Antonoff is presenting and Brother McDuff is negating.
By Values, I mean the ideals, customs, and institutions of a society that people in a society find desirable. A value can also generally refer to any quality that an individual finds desirable.
Specifically by American Values, I am referring to certain core beliefs that have been shared by those residing in the United States since its founding.
By never, I mean at no point in time.
And by existed, I mean been found to occur.
Join the Phi Kappa Literary Society this Thursday, January 19th at 7 pm for a debate that is sure to transcend the usual political conversation.
