Philosophical Questions for debate/discussion:
Question #1: Do people really want to hear the truth, or lies?
Question #2: Do people only wish to hear positive opinions?
This brings about the obvious question, do people really believe that life is roses, daisies, dandelions, and what the schools are teaching now?
The public school systems in the United States are teaching the following:
“Every person is a winner”
The schools give out awards to the team that loses in America, is this a good thing? For example, if there is a basketball tournament, even the losing team will get an award (often times).
