Today we had the campers share their views and debate a couple hypothetical statements. Here are the statements, along with the campers' responses.
Statement 1: Protection of human rights justifies the use of military force.
Brooke Barmy: "If it comes to that where we have to hurt another country to protect our human rights, I think it is fair that we do use miltary force. Just so our people do not get hurt and we are not abused."
Tecno Tiger: "I agree with Brooke, human rights are for everyone, if there not given then people will have to use force to get human rights/ protect them, if everything else fails."
Itokuzu Shimada: "If something like genocide is occuring, if necessary, we should use military force."
Malarthi Behemoth: "Nothing justifies military force, right to peace is a human right, therefore you cannot violate a right to protect it. If you have to use force because there's no other option, use enough force to make sure the situation never occurs again."
Keleus Ferguson: "Not all human rights movements have to be with war force sometimes they can be solved by discussions and protest."
This was the next statement debated:
