LP at Chiltern Way Academy

who were close runners up!
Orange Bunny won this week because they used great REASONING and STORYTELLING skills. They gave a really relevant analogy to illustrate their point (the example of the milk) and told the story that built towards to their final opinion. We also thought the question of quality vs quantity showed good curiosity. The full entry is posted below.

Safety and freedom are both important. You could live in complete safety for a long time, or live in freedom for a good time. If you had no freedom but lots of safety, you would live for a long time with a low quality of life. If you had no safety but lots of freedom, you might not live that long, but you would live with a high quality of life. We could imagine the freedom-safety situation in buying some milk. If you had ultimate safety but no freedom, then the milk would be safe to drink, but you might not have the freedom to buy it. If you had ultimate freedom but no safety, you would be free to buy the milk, but it might not be safe to drink. In this situation, you must make the choice for yourself whether you will take your freedom and buy the milk, or take your safety and go without. In this same way, people must choose for themselves whether they will take their freedom or their safety, and the answer will differ majorly between two people. The best way to answer this would be to find an effective balance between the two, but I personally think that freedom is more important, going back to my quality of life point, this is just like if someone were to say ‘quality not quantity’, but you might prefer quantity.
