Traditionally, there are four positions within this philosophical line of thinking:Hard determinism- Belief that "for every event there exist conditions that could cause no other event" and free will does not exist.Combatibilism- Belief that free will is compatible with determinism and both existHard incombatilism- neither free will nor determinism existsLibertarianism- Belief that free will exists and determinism does not.

Should minimum wage be raised?

I feel like it shouldn't be raised. If you have minimum skills, education, and provide a minimum contribution to the workplace, why should you be paid more?...

subdeo

I will argue that guns should be allowed to be owned by the public at large. My opponent will take the position that guns should be banned from being owned by the public. Round one is acceptance only, round two is arguments only, and rounds three and four are for arguments and rebuttals. Good luck, opponent!...

Books or Movies?

k.hadija

I would pick movies over books, i think that books include the deeper meaning and emotion of some scenes, that can't be expressed in a movie. Books are also more descriptive and movies don't always include everything that happens in the book because they don't have enough screen-time. Reading books can also expand your vocabulary and intelligence....

There is no logical or proveable conclusion to the origins of the universe through religion.

MakeDebatingGreatAgain
NoahIsRight

I would like to debate that religion provides no logical or provable stance to the origins of mankind or the universe. I believe that the best explanation comes from science, because it is based on proven facts and sound, logical reasoning. Con will take the side that religion does offer a reasonable explanation to the origins of mankind. Con may choose from any well known religion, such as Christianity, Judaism, Hinduism, etc. As long as the ideas stem form...

Americans need to break free from the 2 party corporate trap.

Anonymous_Jim
Michaelbjenkins

The Republican and Democrat parties in America are controlled by corporate elites who pay off politicians and control political decisions through unfair wealth distribution and rigging of electoral processes by suppressing voices that go against their war agenda. We must embrace third parties and open debates so that we don't go too far down this path of unethical behavior and lack of compassion for humanity and the general environment. Imagine the country we could build if we didn't spend as mu...

Is the Electoral College a Good Way to Have an Election?

byaka2013
TheMarketLibertarian

The Electoral College means that your vote doesn't matter and the 1% buys the vote. States are unfairly represented and swing states really only matter. Popular vote has been divergent of electoral 5 times now, so when will it end? We need a fair system, not this disaster. I am calling for direct popular voting, removing this whole system of 55 for CA, etc. This is not democracy- this is oligarchy....
