What’s the Res - Season 2, Episode 12: LD Paradigm - Rule of Law

August 28, 2019

Why do we follow laws? What moral imperative do we have to obey laws, just or unjust? These questions and more are the subject of this episode, where Josh discusses the development of the principle of Rule of Law across western civilization, and then how it as applies to Lincoln-Douglas debate! This paradigm has a lot of applications, but it is usually deployed in the Novice LD resolution at the beginning of each competitive season - "Resolved: Civil disobedience in a democracy is morally justified." Check it out, and let us know what you think!
