Vegetarianism is the only ethical choice in the 21st century.

I think that vegetarianism is the only moral choice in the 21st century because eating meat is becoming a huge problem now. First, to produce all that meat, large areas of land have to be used to grow the animals, when they can actually be used for something more important, like planting trees to save the nature or other stuff. Also, lots of people are becoming overweight, and that can be a large problem of the 21st century. There will be twice as many people in hospital, and that can be disastr...

Communism v. Capitalism

First I would like to point out the flaws in capitalism. Capitalism is great in the short to mid term. Sadly in the long run it will lead to what Karl Marx called "The Dictatorship Of The Bourgeois" a society where the rich control everything and the working class has nothing. In the communist society that Marx envisioned was a egalitarian utopia where all men/woman/other are equal. You worked for society and society worked for you....

Paper Money Should Be Eliminated

The first round should be a brief overview of your view on the target statement. The second round should contain an organized and sequential list of supporting arguments. The third round should contain rebuttals to your opponent's arguments. The final round should be dedicated to your conclusion and thoughts on each debater's content and performance. I think this should be a fun and original debate. I'm interested to see how it goes! Overview: The economy is capable of relying on a syst...

Economic Freedom ought to be valued over economic equality

SpiffyTexan

As the nobel prize winner in economic science FA Hayek stated, "Even the striving for equality by means of a directed economy can result only in an officially enforced inequality - an authoritarian determination of the status of each individual in the new hierarchical order." It is because I agree with Nobel prize winner in economic science F.A. Hayek that I must affirm the resolution resolved: that In the realm of economics, freedom ought to be valued over equity. Before we jump right in I wou...

Should prostitution be legalized in the United States

theseus23
gelmy1

This debate will deal if prostitution should be legalized across the United States. Taking aside, whether it should be left up to the individual states or whether it be a federal law etc. I argue that prostitution, a person soliciting him or herself to another for services that are sexually is no more immoral than one soliciting any other services, be it yard work, plumbing, or a painter. It is a consumer's money for a producer's time and service. I also argue that whether one believes...
