Conscription

Aurigae54

In this debate, I will be arguing against conscription. Conscription is mandatory military service, AKA the draft. Conscription violates the 13th Amendment of the Constitution of the United States, which states, "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude, except as a punishment for crime whereof the party shall have been duly convicted, shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation...

Greedo shot first

SirMaximus
Reformist

This is a debate that has existed since 1997: did Han shoot in retaliation to Greedo attempting to shoot him, or did Han suddenly shoot Greedo without Greedo attempting to shoot him?

It didn't improve anything - and you should never change a running system. Secondly, in the original version where Han shot Greedo without warning, Han's character was more wel...

SirMaximus
retrovision

This is a debate about whether or not global warming is real. The premise is that global warming is real, and I am taking the Pro position - that is, I am arguing that global warming is real. I, as Pro, will have the burden of proof in this debate. Since my opponent will be taking the Con position, it is not up to my opponent to prove that global warming is not real. Rather, it is up to me to prove that it is real. I will have the responsibility of making the arguments. My opponent will not h...
