Does the "occupy" protest movement have a clear and common message

awesomeness

Occupy protests lack common/coherent message "Occupy protests need to focus on coherent demands." Student Life Staff Editorial. October 17th, 2011: "The protests have been linked and compared to the tea party movement, due to their similar grassroots nature and extreme ideological stances. However, the tea party does have a centralized message, which the "Occupy" protests lack. The tea party is about reducing taxes and cutting spending to make government smaller. Regardless of whether or not you...

Love after marriage is much better than love before marriage

mahamsiddiqui

What I think is that love after marriage is a better option because out of 100% ,80% "love marriages" failed to keep their relationship smooth. As far as "love after marriage" is concerned,its mostly beneficial because partner expect less and get more where as in love marriages people expect more and get less because of their sky reaching expectations......U.S is having highest divorce ratings....and sadly speaking U.S have majority people having love marriages... http://www.pagalguy.com/for...

Abortion is Immoral --- Tournament Debate, round 1

wiploc

Resolved: Abortion is Immoral. MasterKage is Pro. He believes abortion is immoral, wrong, should not be done. He can make exceptions for rape and incest if he chooses, but the point is that abortion itself is a wrong thing, from the moment of conception.

Abortion should be legal in every case, even late-term

Crevaux

Abortion is a very controversial issue in the United States, as well as in several developed nations of the world. I come forward with a position that is even more controversial. I believe abortion should be legalized. But not only during the first trimester, or limited to rape and incest cases, but rather throughout the pregnancy of a woman, whatever her reason for aborting is. I take an evictionist point of view, according to which the womb of a mother should remain the woman's property...

Resolved: Individuals Have A Moral Obligation To Assist Those In Need

WriterSelbe

Because I always seem to lose when debating on the negative, I figured the best way to go about this would be to get some practice. Feel free to give me pointers and whatnot. The first round is for acceptance. When debating, please site sources and use a Lincoln-Douglas layout with a value, criterion, and necessary definitions. In fact, one should write their initial argument like an actual case....
