The notion that Stalin caused the death of millions of people

Capitalistslave
Emilrose

My position: I will be arguing that Stalin is not responsible for the deaths of millions of people who died in the Ukrainian famine, or "holodomor" as other people call it. 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...

I firmly believe that marijuana should not be legalized. It is nothing less than a drug. Legalizing it increases the likelihood that it will be used. Marijuana is not good for the body or for society. Legalization would endanger the economy, and it would be foolish to do so....

The Bible is a harmful book that evokes unnatural feelings that constrain human intellect and reasoning. The Bible is dangerously addictive if believed. The Bible's affect is even more damaging when put into the hands of a child, or a senior citizen. My intention for this debate is to prove how damaging the Bible is towards the human mind, and to the world.Round 1-AcceptanceRound 2-Case...

Abortion

Forever23

According to http://www.numberofabortions.com/ There have been over 90,000 Abortions today across the entire world. The majority of people might choose the pro side to this, abortion should exist. And I have noticed the main argument for this is "The baby is not considered alive and/or human unit birth." An Abortion typically occurs between the 13th and the 20th weeks of fetal development. By the 13th week of fetal development, the baby has already developed its organs and body parts meaning t...

Is Taiwan an independent country from the PRC ? and if it is should the world/UN recognize it?

jason122690
Zidane

From the beginning of the Chinese Civil War, Taiwan had never been controlled by the PRC (The Communist China,) when the Nationalists were defeated by the Communists, they retreated to Taiwan and established a stable democracy there. The US even recognized Taiwan as a country until the 1970s. They withdrew their recognition because they wanted to have a more stable relationship so they could defeat the Soviets, which basically killed the international recognition of Taiwan. Taiwan has a differen...
