Do the ends justify the means?

themightyindividual

A man should foresee the consequences of his actions and base his actions accordingly. The other way around would be ridiculous. The ends (the end result) must justify the means (the way of getting to that result) because if not, what does? Take this example: A man is transported to a jungle island with nothing but a knife, a backpack, his clothes, and a Zippo lighter. He is automatically faced with a problem: how to survive. In order to survive on this island, he chooses a system of rational...

SeanNation

Hi everyone, this is my first debate on debate.org. Have patience! With that stated, here I go! Whether you think it's a choice or not, whether you approve of homosexuality or not, homosexuality exists. Gay people exist. Gay couples and relationships exist. You can choose to ignore them, but they will continue to have sex and partnerships. If you believe it is a choice, then as long as humans retain free will, there will always be people who choose to be gay, even in the most intolerant of...

I will be running for the negative side of the "right to be forgotten" on Internet searches ought to be a civil right. Many of us had once in our life have been outraged for our right to know in the public eyes. Whether it be from a blocked website or maybe even Area 51. We all question things in our world, but do we know what they are trying to keep from us? The "right to be forgotten" on the Internet sometimes constrains us from viewing things we want to know more about. Right to be forgott...

celebration of the modern context of Halloween

I feel that the modern context in which we celebrate Halloween is absolutely wrong. This is because we celebrate evil and not the goodness which is the old way. Why should we teach the children of the 21st century to be satanic and evil? Surely our society already promotes bad things through computer games and television? Enough is enough....

Ishika
debate1234567890

Yes children of today should definitely be allowed to watch unmonitored television . I would lije qoute an example before beginning with my argument. It was afternoon and I was watching television. My mom walked and say what I was watching and finding it inappropriate for me to watch she told me to change the channel then got busy with some work. I switched it on again. Is this monitoring sufficient ofcourse not. Hence what is required is monitoring our values and morals and bringing them up in...
