Question description

To determine if an argument is valid, we must analyze the relationship of the
supporting evidence to the argument. Does the evidence clearly support the
argument? Consider any evidence which supports the case below.

1.  Review the commentary below about illegal drug use:

A case has been made that drug use in itself is not a problem – the real
problem is an economic and social one and drug abuse is only a symptom of
underlying conditions such as unemployment, racial inequality, and the erosion
of family values.  This argument states that drug abuse will diminish when these
problems are resolved.  Is this a valid argument?

2.  Support a specific point of view in your main post in the class
discussion section of your online course.

  • Make an argument stating whether you agree or disagree.
  • Is this argument based on your ethical decisions or moral decisions?
