Has Capitalism failed?

jworl

I propose the motion: Capitalism has failed. I propose to define "Capitalism" as the method of economic organisation that is characterized by the private ownership of capital and land as the means to production. I propose to define "failed", broadly as "not achieving its goal, end, or being unsuccessful in its attempts towards a goal" (This is my first debate so tips welcomed)...

Should children under twelve own a smartphone

Kids should have smartphones! The reason I'm saying that kids should have smartphones is that it fun to learn with technology. They could also communicate with their classmates. And e-mail homework or class work to their teacher. They could also use it for social media to make new friends. So I think that kids should have smartphones....

Studying English(Pro) vs Math(Con)

18Karl

I think studying English is better than Math because Math formulas boggle my head. I am currently in 7th grade. While English essays are long, they are not as bad as writing all those numbers that can stop making sense if you lose concentration or take a break for a while. I do not like algebra....

Religious people are obsessed over God

Atheism_Debater

Yes, they are obsessed over God as they find signs of him in even human work, they thank him for materialistic things that are refined by them only, and they believe in him even if they fail to convince any atheist. I as an atheist have convinced many of no evidence, yet they still chose to believe. What is that if not obsession?...

Natural beauty is more important than having make - up on

Natural beauty is more important than having make up on. I think that we should embrace whatever we are given by god and not modify it. A light touch-up is fine, but not heavy make-up that totally changes your whole image. What is the point of hiding behind a mask the whole time, pretending to be someone else? Be yourself, embrace it and be confident. Beauty is not so much on the outside but on the inside. Besides that, why should we put chemicals on our face? This might put us to a higher risk...

There are a lot of basic benefits of IVF. There's a good amount of people that are unable to conceive a child, and IVF will allow them to do so. Not only does IVF allow couples to have a child, but single women and same sex couples as well. IVF will also provide them with a sperm donor if needed. If a parent or a woman's IVF cycle is unsuccessful, the embryos from other people may be donated and be used to enable the embryo recipients to have a child. People undergo IVF for several reasons; so...
