Olympic Spirit is Dead

I pose the argument that the olympic spirit is dead, I am for this. The definition of the olympic spirt can be broadly interpreted, so ill use this website as a baseline for what I interpret the olympic spirit to be. http://www.olympicspirit.org/mission.php eg. unifying the world through competetive athletecisim, in which the athletes observe the ideals of fairplay and sportsmanship. I think that modern day olympics has evolved to become an event which wears these ideals as a badge wh...

Overall Parliament gained power at the expense of the monarchy during the Tudor era.

Apologies for the long topic title, and to clear things up, This Is exactly what I would like to debate. I pose that, during the reigns of Henry IIIV and Elizabeth I, parliament did not gain power at the expense of the monarchy. And that while parliament did gain power, the crowns power rose in in equal measure during this period (The Tudor period). My opponent may argue for any alternative to this, such as parliament gained power at the expense of the monarchy or vise versa. Anyone Is...

I believe that abortion should not be legal one bit I don't believe that murder is right at all, but if abortion is legal why don't they legalize killing people. God has a plan for everyone and when you have a abortion you are going against God......... You think you can prove me wrong try...

Professor David Nutt recently recommended that Ecstasy should be downgraded from a class A to a class B drug. I am FOR this. And I shall allow my opponent to start the argument. I am not arguing that ecstasy should be legalised and that its not harmful....

Smoking Packet Pictures

Perhaps my fellow countrymen and women (UK) if you by chance are a smoker like myself or if you by chance stumble across a new pack of Cigs in your travels, you will see that the government has decided oh so wisely to pass another law against us, and put pictures on the back of packs to remind us of the hellish trouble we will get in if we continue smoking, as if we didn't know already, and are passing another law that cigarettes must be served under the counter to stop i quote "impulsive" buyin...

Smoking ban

Nik

Basically, quite a hot topic in Europe, the (sort of) recently imposed indoor smoking ban (in England anyway) In my opinion is completely ridiculous, and should be changed. Let me outline a few reasons why: 1.It should be up to the establishment to decide on whether or not to allow smoking inside their premises, so that they can decide for themselves whether or not a smoking ban within their premises would be appropriate, for example allot of restaurants would probably choose to impose a smok...

Religion should not be imposed on children, to allow them to choose for themselves

Nik
numa

I am not saying religion should be banned!!, but that children should not be indoctrinated from a young age to believe and accept the religion their parents choose them to. Surely it is in everyones interest that we give our children the right to choose their beliefs for themselves?...

London is the best capital city in the world.

Nik

By best city in the world, I do not mean, most economically important. I view london the best city in the world from a cultural standpoint. If you live in london you begin to realise that what ever you want, london has to offer. The blend of victorian housing and ultra modern sky scrapers and office towers, means London has an image that is unique. The cultural diversity, though not liked by all londoners, creates a charm, that I think is also unique to this fantastic city! Please challenge my i...
