Marriage equality is a fundamental right that very human deserves. Imagine going through life without having the right to marry because it makes some unhappy. They will say the bible says so, but that is false....

The notion that Stalin caused the death of millions of people

Capitalistslave
Emilrose

My position will be that a famine happened. I will even be arguing that Stalin attempted to combat the problem of the famine.The holodomor was supposedly a case where millions of people died and people who believe Stalin was behind it, believe he purposely pu...

Illegal Immigration Is Bad For Americans

DeletedEmails
benbspiller

Illegal immigration is not only ILLEGAL in it's definition, but is also extremely regressive for Americans in terms of it's effect on both the economy and government benefits systems otherwise known collectively as welfare. In 2015, there was an estimated 11 million illegal immigrants living in the United States. Of that amount, around 8 million immigrants made up around 5% of the total national civilian workforce (those working, were unemployed but able to work and those looking for work). The...

[1] Theft is defined as: The removal property without consent of the owner with the intention of depriving the owner of it permanently.

Should flying the Confederate flag be looked down upon?

JimShady
platoandaristotle

Hello, I have enjoyed my hiatus from DDO and am ready to get back into it. I've been arguing with my family for a while now about the Confederate Flag and the Confederacy in general. My family lives in the South, and they have an emotional tie to the place, especially my mom, and they feel that the Confederate flag is a good representation of their values. Since they believe slavery is wrong, I whole-heartedly disagree. We are getting nowhere in this debate, so I will try it out on DDO. I...

confederate statues should not be in places of honor the civil war was about slavery, plain and simple. if you look at the reasons stated for the war, it always went back to slavery. only in the abstract was it about states' rights, and there has been a misinformation campaign to retrospectively say that's what it was about. research history and you will see the truth. so do we want statutes of men who led the fight for slavery? maybe in the same way we'd want a statue of hitler, maybe at a m...
