Debate with Legend of Korra's Zaheer

Mon Aug 11, 2014, 8:02 PM

Open discussion time!  This discussion prompt comes from the Legend of Korra.

Zaheer of the Red Lotus gives you the opportunity to sit down to tea with him and engage him in a civilized philosophical debate.  Your job is to make your case for why anarchy and trying to destroy the world are both bad ideas.  Obviously, he will try to convert you to Red Lotus thinking.

1. Keep it civil.  As long as you do, so will Zaheer.  No name calling, and try to avoid using purely emotional arguments.
2. You may use any source you deem relevant to support your arguments.  This includes in-universe material, extra-canonical material and real world material.  It would be to your benefit to be absolutely certain that any point you draw from an outside source is accurate.  For instance, don't claim that Guru Laghima said something in particular unless you're absolutely certain he did.
3. Just engage Zaheer in the debate, not others.  You may draw from others' arguments, but you may not turn this around and start debating them.  So if someone starts using religious philosophy or material you don't necessarily agree with, deal with it.  Basically, do not hijack others' comment threads.
4. Keep the fourth wall intact.  Don't say, "Well, Mike and Bryan said this, so you're wrong."  We're working off the assumption that these guys are not villains just because Mike and Bryan designated them as such.  Besides, as is the case in real life, Zaheer may not take Bryke's word just because they are sovereign over that universe.  He has to have other reason to consider it.

Tag a quality deviant, You're it! Quality doesn't mean that you to have a lot of followers, or a boat load of messages. To me Quality just means that you're nice to other people, and now you deserve to be happy in turn. So hey if you get this message, it means someone is telling you that they love you as you are, and they don't care how much followers you have. Please send this to #? deviants who you think deserve it. Even if you break the chain, it's okay nothing will happen. But it’s just Right to let someone know that you love them! (In a purely platonic way of course :) )

Best Pony... Derpy.
Best class pet... Liz the Chameleon. :D

The class pet is a hamster. Liz is SO much more than a mere pet. She's literally the only other creature besides the Bus* that the Friz will trust with the lives of her students.

*Tardises are living, sentient beings. Coral with souls.

So if the bus is the Tardis, then is Liz K-9? :giggle:
