The Federal Government should mandate that stocks must pay dividends

NeoConCommunist
Ragnar_Rahl

I assert the following: The Securities and Exchange Commission should mandate that all companies must pay a certain minimum dividend to their shareholders proportional to their earnings, either in cash or in corporate bonds. My reasoning: Almost every major economic downturn in the United States in recent history has been the result of the boom/bust cycle, which in turn is the product of speculation, which drives prices artificially high. Although speculation can fuel growth, if taken...

The death penalty by lethal injection is too lenient a punishment compared to life in prison.

A lot of people are against the death penalty because they feel it is too harsh a punishment. I'm personally against it because I don't feel that it is harsh enough on those truly deserving of punishment. As long as it is done painlessly, the death penalty is over before it begins. Sure, it must be psychologically punishing to know, to the day, when you will die, but this is the only punishment the death penalised prisoner will receive. Once the injection has been made, the criminal slowly fa...

By avoiding foreign entanglements, a country may use all of its...

No closed society can sustain anarchy for prolonged periods of time

NeoConCommunist
merlinator

I would like to open this debate by defining the terms that the debate is based on and explaining my exact position. It is my contention that any closed society based on anarchy cannot continue in that state for any prolonged period of time. First, a few definitions, and then we can proceed to argument. Anarchy: the absence of government (courtesy of merriam-webster online dictionary; I realize that there are other definitions, but this debate is about this specific definition) Gove...

Legalizing prostitution in the United States

NeoConCommunist
masterzanzibar

I would like to introduce my point of view by first discussing the so-called "evils" of prostitution. Prostitution now, as ever, is not an uncommon thing in the world, particularly in the poorer regions of the world. Even the United States, with its amazingly high standard of living, has its share, as by itself the number of scandals involving them and politicians (remember Elliot Spitzer?) proves. Prostitution is an ugly thing - connected to human trafficking, often dominated by tyrannical a...
