Restricting social network services in the Middle East is a desirable policy


Many countries in the Middle East are stopping social network services such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter. These countries are prohibiting communication sites such as the Internet for political or religious reasons. I think it is not a good policy to stop social network services. This is a violation of freedom of expression, one of the universal rights that people will pursue. Also, the reason for prohibiting social network services is to prevent spreading the thoughts of corrupt government...

Should we nuke North Korea


Yes, you may kill millions of North Koreans buy nuking Pyongyang, BUT all of them are brainwashed and any outcome in which North Korea is dissolved with result in a revolt by the people. They are not worth risking military lives for and will never fully believe the truth. It would be better to just end it for the North Korean people....

This house supports the Dakota Access Pipeline.


There is a lot of controversy surrounding DAPL. Most of it surrounds the land the pipeline will be built on. The neighboring Native American reservation is concerned because it borders their water source and an old burial ground. Unfortunately the land has already been destroyed. As such it should be put to good use. !st I bring to you the simple economic benefit. It is very costly to transport oil by rail and diesel as we do know. Building the pipeline will drastically decrease the cost of dome...

ABM is a positive movement in DDO


This will be a short debate on whether or not ABM should be allowed in DDO. I will take the position of Pro. I do believe that ABM should not be banned on DDO, and should be allowed to continue its (rather outrageous) practices. ...

Women should have the same rights as men.


Women should have equal rights as men, as it says in the Constitution that everyone is made equal. Many women around the world can't even go to Wal-Mart without their husband's permission, for pete's sake. They're forced to marry strangers, and at a very young age. This is outrageous and people need to give women the freedoms they rightly deserve....

Europe should stop accepting Syrian refugees


This is my first debate, so I'm kind of confused, anyways. I believe that Europe should stop accepting Syrian refugees. This can be proven through statistics. Last year, Europe accepted about one million refugees, and since then, there have been numerous terrorist attacks, all of which had something to with Islam. The refugees are also about ninety percent able bodied men, which is incredibly suspicious. Besides, when the USA had a civil war, our men didn't run away to other countries, they stoo...

The urgent issue of the modern society. Are you for or against abortion?


Since the legalization of abortion in 1973, over 58 million unborn children have been killed, more than the entire population of Spain. That's 155 babies per hour. About 1 every 24 seconds. God"s plan for them will be ruined forever. Can we remain indifferent to such immense human slaughter? NO. So please let's discuss this question in more details. I personally completely agree with the words of Megan Clancy, who claims: "There are women who are raped and become pregnant; the problem is that th...

Are dress codes sexist


,Dress codes are mainly geared towards girls. Dress codes are unfair to girls""and underestimate boys' maturity. It suggests that school"s priority is to create an ideal learning environment for guys, while ignoring factors that may help girls learn. Boys should learn how to control themselves at a young age. The problem is not of girls dress and sometimes, but rarely, guys. Also, in a time where so many girls dislike the way they look, which is in middle or high school, schools should not e...

Don't you think the Boston Bombing was over hyped?


First of all, I understand and acknowledge that the Boston bombing was a terrible event which never should have occurred. But don't you ever stop and think that a big deal is being made out of something substantially smaller? People were even thinking this could be compared to 9/11. On the same day 42 people die in an earthquake in Iraq. But does that receive even a tenth of what the Boston bombings received. No. This can't be defended....
