Why We Have Good Reasoning


People might argue that the producers of KUWTK are encouraging bad relationships not good ones because the Kardashians egocentric personalities and confrontational behavior can be offputting

We would argue that the qualities of the individual do not affect the moral quality of the relationship.

Ex. Kim supports Kylie regardless of whether or not she is an ego-centric and a talentless individual
- We've explained the truth of our premises by showing how KUWTK demonstrates good relationships through ethical theories
- If our support is true, our premises lead logically to our conclusion
- many examples of KUWTK that support our premises
