If you think, IT'S THE END OF THE WORLD, then YOU are what's wrong with society!!!

Smooosh
Discipulus_Didicit

I'm arguing that our society is crumbling simply because we believe our world is ending. The super volcano isn't ready to blow its top, there's no rogue planet careening toward earth. We are the makers of our own apocalypse. Mass hysteria, is a greater danger to us than natural global catastrophes. ...

Long Island should be its own individual American State.

JENYS

Instead of having to listen to any of New York's governors and laws, how about listening to its own governor and laws? That way, if New York creates its own law that becomes problematic, Long Island won't be affected at all like it is now, and besides, I live in Long Island, located east of NYC and south of Connecticut. For example, if New York wants to ban pets from all hotels, Long Island may allow pets in hotels, but it's up to each hotel owner. Also, if New York wants everybody to take Spani...

Our past doesn't define us

McMount
HeavenlyPanda

First round is for acceptance. My argument is that no matter what we have done in the past, it does not define our present selves. Con must argue that our past explicitly defines who we are at the present moment. Past: What we have done in the years passed Present self: The decisions you make now or have made in recent weeks or months And let's be clear: this debate is not about causality. It's not about the fact that your previous experiences and actions affect the decisions you make...

Do students have a right to choose their subject teachers?

DebatingTZK
Romeo2332

Sorry if there is any inconvenience, my entry is in SIngapore context. Thank you. I do not agree with this statement. If students are allowed to choose their own subject teachers, a few of the teachers would be greatly favoured. But different students have different views and will pick different subject teachers, in the long term causing disharmony between classmates because of their assigned teacher. Good friends may get into arguments about what teacher to choose and this is not what we want...

Internet is boon to our society

Romeo2332

"The Internet is so big, so powerful and pointless that for some people it is a complete substitute for life." A very pleasant morning to one and all. With these words of Stephen Hawking I ROMEO2332 stands before you to speak in favour of motion. The Internet has become a crucial tool in modern life. It is estimated that over 1 billion people have regular access to the internet. The modern economy, and most modern businesses now have a heavy reliance on it. The internet itself is a huge profit...

The Moon would make a great God. Why not?

zeromeansnothing

Allow me to make the case for the Moon as being a potentially 'great God'.The moon has always fascinated man. The moon is globally visible and 'accessible'.The moon connects the past the present and the future.The moon influences our habitat and it speaks to us in a myriad of ways.There is only one moon on this earth and it has a topography that suggests a benign facial image.We have been to the moon and we could send our ashes to it when we are dec...
