sviridovt

Immigration was President Trump's signature issue during the election campaign and he has signed a number of executive orders designed to fulfill his promises. One of his first orders declared that the US would build a wall along the border with Mexico, which already has some 650 miles of fencing. But he needs congressional approval for funding before construction can begin and that is yet to happen. He insists the costs will be recouped from Mexico, despite its leaders saying otherwise. While P...

Do we need feminism?

A lot of people like to say we don't need feminism any more. Women have rights, "what more do we want?" First for all feminism is about gender equality. It is not about female supremacy. You can like boys and be a feminist. I just wanted to make that clear. Now here are reasons we need feminism. A) Sexual harassment in school and the workplace. B) Rape is still not taken seriously enough. According to a study done in 2016, 994 out of 1000 rapists will walk free. You could spend more time in j...

God exists.

Ockham
linate

The resolution is that God exists. Pro will be arguing that God exists, while Con will be arguing that Pro has not established that God exists. By accepting this debate, Pro agrees that they have the burden of proof to establish that it is objectively more likely than not that God exists. The rules for assessing this are the standard rules of logic, including the rules of deductive and inductive inference. For example, a deductive argument must be deductively valid and have premises that we h...

All children should be home-schooled

Turdle
Raumulus

Unfortunately, your statement that 'all Children should be home-schooled for their primary education' is completely unlogical, unreasonable and impractical. There are multiple flaws. The reality is, there are a large number of families who send their children to school plainly because they lack the educational and/or teaching capabilities to teach their own children. Parents in this situation would have two main options; they can either hire a private tutor, which would be very costly or, attemp...

That UBI should be implemented in the western world

ISDA
Turdle

UBI is an undeniably good choice for the western world, as it eliminates extreme poverty and allows more economic freedom. For those who don't know UBI, or Universal Basic Income, it is where the government gives every citizen a base income of around $10,000 that you can spend on anything. The difference between this and normal welfare is that most public welfare goes by the system that you earn the amount of money from the welfare but any amount above and you lose said welfare, acting as a box...
