Public healthcare, refers to the safety net provided by the government to ensure the well-being of the health of citizens. They are aimed to establish a harmonious, just and healthy society. According to the World Health Organization public healthcare refers to organized measures to prevent diseases and the public healthcare is aimed for the whole population, but NOT individual needs. As smokers are the "individuals", this motion should definitely stand. Before going onto my substantials, I...

Mathematical ambiguity when accepting 0.99...=1

OneOfNone
SimLeek

This is my very first debate here, and in it I will attempt to show that, while for practicality 1 = 0.99..., theoretically this does not always quite yield true. I shall present an argument in favor of this, and will be open to criticism. The Argument: 1 = 0.99... Where f(1) is well defined: f(1)=f(0.99...) must hold. Let f(x) be the digital root of x. f(0)=0 f(0.9)=f(0+9)=f(9)=9 f(123.64)=f(1+2+3+4+6)=f(16)=f(7)=7 f(99)=f(9+9)=f(18)=f(1+8)=f(9)=9 (This is how a digital root is fo...

Should trolls be temporarily banned from Debate.org?

lol101

This debate is reserved for Tough. If anyone else accepts, they lose. I'm for the idea that trolls should be temporarily banned from this site. I will be setting up my own criteria for "temporarily banning" them. Temporary ban for trolling: 5 days. Since "troll" is a slang term, we will be using the Urban Dictionary for terms like this. Troll-"One who posts a deliberately provocative message to a newsgroup or message board with the intention of causing maximum disruption and argument...
