Cross Examination Negative: The controversial nature of the art is inappropriate for the government to sponsor. 1. Would you guess that many people in America do not agree with many of the decisions our current administration makes? a. 39% of Americans agree with the decision to invade Iraq according to a USA Today poll on May 12. Doesn’t this indicate that many people in America do not agree with many of the decisions our current administration makes? 2. Would agree that many people did not agree with the decision to end slavery in the 1800’s? 3. But the government did choose to end slavery, correct? 4. And in retrospect, wouldn’t most Americans agree that that decision was “good” for American society, even though it was controversial at the time? 5. And in this and every previous administration there have always been Americans who disagree with almost every decision, right? 6. So even though some people disagree with the decisions an administration makes, those decisions are still made? 7. Then wouldn’t that mean someone would always be upset or disagree with every governmental decision made, even though that decision may turn out to be good for society? 8. So then, considering that someone will always be upset by the decisions our government makes, shouldn’t the goal of the government be more to promote what is best for the country without considering the amount of controversy that decision will provoke? Proves: Government should aid art that is best for our country, not art that is the least controversial. The art is too controversial. 1. Would you say that the government is an entity of the people, meant to represent and promote their ideas? 2. Would you say there are many ideas and issues in America? 3. And would you say that a way that people form their opinions on these ideas is through information they receive from other people? 4.
