Euthanasia

Danielle
lannan13

Euthanasia refers to the practice of intentionally ending a life in order to relieve pain and suffering. While it is an issue of law for certain, I labeled this debate into the Philosophical category. Euthanasia, sometimes called "mercy killing" or referred to as assisted suicide has both ethical and legal ramifications. I will be arguing on behalf of the law embracing euthanasia as a viable legal option for...

Libertarianism

Cold-Mind

Accept only if you really are libertarian.Scenario is following: I don't know what libertarianism is (I may check up about it during the debate); My opponent is libertarian, and he is trying to convice me to become one too. I will be trying to refute my opponent's arguments, furthermore, I may try to convice my opponent that he should not be libertarian.Voting: If neither debater surrenders, debate will remain tied (no one will vote)....

NSA Surveillance

Danielle
YYW

I dislike instigating debates from the Con position, but I wasn't entirely sure how to frame the resolution. My opponent, should he accept, has agreed to debate this issue from either side. I will be standing in opposition to the extent of NSA Surveillance. A brief overview: The NSA has the capability to collect massive amounts of data on traffic over switched phone networks and the internet. Recently they gained the ability to capture and store data en masse, and retain...

Philosophy and the humanities are underrated in education.

Danielle
RoyLatham

I would like to thank my esteemed opponent in advance for accepting this debate. I look forward to what I hope will be a very thought provoking and insightful discussion :) For all intents and purposes, I believe the resolution is pretty straight-forward. By underrated, I will be arguing that increasing the focus in humanities and/or philosophy in education, particularly higher education, would be beneficial to society. I will contend that there is an increasing problematic...

The United States military should be reduced in half.

Danielle
wrichcirw

Greetings and thank you in advance to my opponent for accepting this debate. It is my contention that the U.S. military should be substantially reduced in size and scope. This includes the number of personnel, goals, and overall military spending. The military shall refer to every branch of the armed forces. Although I am an anarchist, I will be arguing from the perspective that the U.S. military should exist and be federally funded through taxes to avoid any tangents about...

Homosexual couples can raise kids just as well as heterosexual couples.

Danielle
MouthWash

This debate is based on my opponent's assertion that homosexual couples cannot raise children as well as heterosexual couples. Hopefully he accepts the challenge to defend this assertion - otherwise we have no reason to consider it remotely credible. After all, considering he has so many sources claiming to validate his position, it shouldn't be difficult for him to defend his beliefs in a formal debate. There should be no semantics used in this discussion; I think it's obvious which position...
