Argument  Decision making  Informing  Choosing a position in a widely debated issue Occupations that usually have arguments over important issues:  Businessman  Politics  Policy maker Examples: “Guns don’t kill people, people kill people” “Animals should have rights” “Education means getting a job” Toulmin Method 1. Prepare a claim (have evidence, examples) 2. Have grounds (provide evidence/data) 3. Provide a warrant (an explanation of logic, authority, cause/effect) 4. Give a backing (additional examples) 5. Make a counterclaim (counterargument/Opposition/Opposing viewpoint) 6. Disagree with the counterclaim (Refutation/rebut) Examples: Guns kill people vs. People kill people “Compromise” – restrict gun uses Arguing Against The Abuse Of Animals In Entertainment Businesses Introduction: What makes us enjoy a sporting event or a movie, specifically the ones that revolve around animals? Is it the amazing stunts that they may perform? Or are the animals just there because it is demanded by someone, spectator or sponsor? It is very easy for people to take for granted of the life of an animal, especially when it has an important role in doing something. The animals may even end up becoming a “slave” to the people they are suppose to work for and it would not matter to whoever owns them. Background: People may be drawn towards the concept of a movie or a sporting event, particularly the ones that include animals. However, what they may or may not know is the perspective of the animals. When using animals to entertain people, they are usually given the wrong amount, or even the wrong kind of treatment. Examples Of Animal Abuse In Entertainment Businesses  Bullfighting  Elephant shows  Sled dog racing  Cockfighting  Animals dying/being mistreated in a movie/live performance o Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl o The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey o Life of Pi  Several circus acts – pressuring animals to do dangerous stunts o Lions jumping through a flaming ring o Bears balancing on a tightrope Opposing Viewpoints Entertainment may not be the only reason that people do these things, but:  It is cultural/artistic  It will make the animals “stars”
