Round 5: This House Believes That in times of crisis that threaten the existence of a community (e.g., famine, war, plague, natural disaster, etc), capable individuals from the community have a moral obligation to dedicate their time directly towards ending the crisis instead of pursuing nonessential activities (e.g., playing sports, making non-propagandist/apolitical art, going on vacation to the beach, pursuing education irrelevant to the crisis, etc.
