Should a government prioritize the humanitarian needs (pro) over the national interests (con)?

No, a government should not prioritize the humanitarian needs over national interests. A government still has an obligation to uphold its self-interests and more generally the best interests of its citizens, regardless of what melt-downs may be occurring in the outside world....

Women should have the same rights as men.

Jadyn.V
Fernyx

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

BlargArgNarg
theobjectiveobjective

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...

An Outside Intruder Did Not Kill JonBenet Ramsey

warren42

This debate is for BSH's tournament. I will be defending the idea that an outside intruder (anyone other than the parents or brother of the victim) did NOT kill JonBenet Ramsey. As such, I assume the full BOP. I must prove, beyond a REASONABLE doubt, that one of JonBenet's mother, father, and brother was responsible for her death. Standard format....

The Cincinnati Zoo is allowed to shoot the gorilla to preserve a human life.

DebateWonder
SirSocrates

This is referring to the shooting of an endangered gorilla to protect the boy. I believe that the zoo did what was necessary to save the child's life, even though it is tragic that the gorilla died. I thank my opponent for joining this debate, and I will be eager to debate him/her. Rules: 1. No forfeiting. 2. No swear words....

Black Lives Matter, New Black Panthers, et al are more dangerous to the USA than ISIS

pimpmaster
BrendanD19

Black Lives Matter (BLM), New Black Panters, and other leftist black groups and community organizers and "leaders" are more dangerous to the USA than ISIS. I am not looking for a semantic debate of what "et al" stands for. Their are many of these leftist black community organizations that are very dangerous and I attempt to prove that they are more dangerous to the USA than ISIS. Ground rules: ISIS - may be extended to radicalized muslims who are not formally in ISIS but take on a radicalize...
