The Death Penalty should be abolished

googlemabob

I thank whoever accepts this challenge in advance; it's my first time debating on this website!

The Con will need to prove that the Death Penalty is beneficial to the United States' well-being. To clarify, by well-being I mean 'the state of being happy, healthy, or prosperous' (1).

There should be no curbs on Artistic freedom

sachusanil

There should be curbs on Artistic freedom. Before start arguing about artistic freedom, one should know what really what art means. Art applies to all aspects of life.
