Our greatest taboo should be permitted for investigation and debate

MassDebater69

This debate will be about whether or not there is significant justification for free speech and inquiry pertaining to a particular historical event. Of the various taboos present in Western and European society, discussion of the Holocaust is often regarded as the most significant. It being part of the curriculum for nearly every school in America and abroad, it is no wonder why this event has such a major impact on us, particularly when we hear details of the oppression that occurred during...

The bible is immoral.

mega-antitheist

I take the position that the bible is not a source of morality because people pick and choose what passages are moral and immoral.

Palestine should be a sovereign nation

brodude12

Palestine's land was taken with questionable legality, and so they have Palestine has a right to be a sovereign nation, as it once was. The fact that it is not is a travesty, as it is only the fear of Israel's nuclear power that prevents the international community from accepting Palestine's sovereignty. The Gaza strip conflict would be completely halted by a declaration of the creation of Palestine as a nation, as the inhabitants of the strip are only looking to regain rights lost sixty years a...
