Quebec Separatism

comport
Buyhers86

I feel that as a self-proclaimed minority, Quebec is taking advantage of the rest of the Canadian provinces, they use our federal government's money, they are given all the same health benefits, and they are in most cases admired by English-speaking Canadians. Maritimers often journey out to the great city of Montreal, to vacation and embrace the French culture. Meanwhile the Francophone are loathing the Anglophones, and wishing they could be rid of us, and rely on themselves rather then the Can...

Facebook imposes

fbdebate
bossyburrito

Facebook imposes on you to reveal your true identity, are you aware of this? Article 1 of their ‘TOS' explicitly states, "You will not provide any false personal information on Facebook, or create an account for anyone other than yourself without permission." A statement in ‘direct conflict' with remaining anonymous on the internet for guaranteed privacy. Article 2 states, "You will keep your contact information accurate and up-to-date.". Almost sounds like a direct order doesn't it? H...

Should China extend real name policy to internet access?

idk_who_u_r
M4sterDeb8er

In my opinion, I strongly agree that China should extend real name policy to internet access because it is the only way to make the internet healthier, more-cultured and safer. The policy could prevent people from exposing corruption online if they fear retribution from officials. As the government said that such a system is needed to prevent people from making malicious and anonymous accusations online and that many other countries have already had such rules. Therefore, China should extend the...

Children by most societies. are being prioritized when it comes to protection. when children are being brought to day cares parents want to know the reputation of the place. when you adopt a child you are being checked if you are qualified in having the child. And when a child is being abused most people in the right mind will have the great urge to help the child. Biological parents when bringing offspring affect the child during the pregnancy phase, thus can be abused and be disordered in...
