3E1 Debate 1: Money is not the most important thing in life

Pre-debate vote: For- 21; Against- 8; Undecided- 5

Post-debate vote: For- 11; Against-18; Undecided- 3

A clear victory for the opposition, which says much for their persuasiveness, since intuition would normally force us to agree with the motion.

Proposition: other factors are more important (like love, family, success, etc), people don’t always choose subjects to study based on what will earn the most money- often they choose out of interest, ultimately health is the most important thing, character is also important. Marslow’s hierarchy of needs- shows that there are many more needs that people have beyond just making ends meet (I was especially impressed with the fact that this was brought in!)

Opposition: living in modern society, money is most important; many make choices in education so they can make most money when they graduate. Success is defined by money. The fact that crime exists at all shows how high people place money as their priority. Financial security is  much more important than happiness.

  1. I would say money is important but certainly not the most important thing in life. Without health, you can’t enjoy wealth at all. If so, then what is the use of money in this case. Can money bring back your beloved who has left you for heaven. Certainly not! Money may bring us happiness but not ultimate and permanent happiness.

  2. Money is not the most important thing on the world. Money are just note, paper, or some metallic stuff, how can we buy happiness with the thing as common as money. Money may satisfy our daily need or necessaries, but not our social wants. Wealth people are not always the happiest, when you are rich it is hard to tell who is your real friend. Thus, money can’t buy happiness.

    1. money is not the most important thing bcoz if we concentrate on money and we dont have or get it then we feel depressed and useless. so we should focus on other non-worldly things.

  3. Money is important for fulfilling our physical needs and wants, but money cannot do much to fulfill our emotional and/or spiritual needs.

  4. my dear firstly u tell me how will u earn money…? only by knowledge we can earn money thats y knowledge is most important things

    1. Now tell me, how can we achieve the knowledge? If we want to achieve more knowledge then we must depend on money. So it is prooved that MONEY is the most important thing in life.

  5. if money is not the most important things. it means no there is no poor in the world. but it is the most important thing that’s why many people want to be a ricth in their r3eal life.

  6. Yes!money is not the most important thing in our life.As people have gain knowledge they have used it as the medium to earn money

  7. Earning money is not, and never has been, the only way to be successful. The greatest success in life is achieved by overcoming obstacles, facing fears and dealing with difficulties. Each small achievement in personal development should be seen as a step towards success.hence,i strongly conclude that MONEY is not the most important thing in life….

  8. MONEY IS IMPORTANT THING IN LIFE BECAUSE EVERYTHING WE NEED AND WANT STARTS WITH THE MONEY. FOR US TO HAVE EVERYTHING AND GO PLACES WE HAVE TO HAVE MONEY SO THAT WE COULD ACHIEVE OUR GOALS

  9. MONEY IS NOT EVERYTHING,JESUS CHRIST SAID A MAN LIFE CONSISETH NOT IN THE ABUNDANCE OF THINGS WHICH HE POSSES.

  10. money is important in our lives in certain extent.we cannot buy happiness,love,humanity and relations through money

  11. money is not important in our daily life but for our daily need it is important money is just like ice which can melt with in no second

  12. money is not important in our daily life but for our daily need it is important money is just like ice which can melt with in no second

  13. we can buy anything by money in the world but we can’t buy knowledge.beloved.etc with money.Money is such thing with damage our life

  14. well take it like this, some people say that money does not buy happiness? i for one would rather sit in my Ferrari and cry then on om bicycle. i would much rather be lonely in my mansion then be in a group sleeping in the street. just saying, everyone does thing to gain more money. the doctors doesn’t give 2 shits about you if you don’t pay them, lawyers will not help serve Justice if not paid either. the list goes on and on and on. so i say money is the most important thing in life, for without it you are nothing and no one. a beggar will not find love as no human will say hey that beggar looks amazing ima ask him/her on a date. nooooo! also without money you simply can’t afford health. if you are poor and you get a deadly illness eg. you will pass on because you will not be able to afford the proper healthcare, hence money buys health as well. enough said, im sure you know what i am saying.

  15. I think money is important now a days but not the most imprtant than love,rltn,etc..
    We can not buy our spiritual needs by money..
    have an example.
    If u r a rich man u’ ll have a danger of a man who want to get ur money ..for this he can do anything so hvng money u cant be calm…
