Mao Zedong proves communism is politically superior to capitalism

WorldWar2Debator
JimShady

The establishment of the People's Republic of China is heralded to be the very moment communism was established in China, as well as when China burst forth into the 20th century. Long been subject to corrupt dynasties and a short reign of tyranny under the Guomindang, the CCP liberated the people through several policies it implemented, especially those by Chairman Mao. In this debate, I will use evidence of the CCP and Mao, throughout its history from its inception in 1921 to Mao's deat...

Sisterhood of DDO

ShyreWolf
What50

This debate will decide whether or not the group "The Brotherhood" contributes and is fit for DDO. I will argue that the Brotherhood is nothing a group of racists causing trouble on this site. I have nothing against the brotherhood nor am I a part of it. This is simply for the fun of debating [note: this debate is intended for the newer members of the brotherhood. Use this opportunity to prove your usefulness to the organization ;)]...

Brotherhood Reform

JimShady
Masterful

Hello, this is more of an announcement than an actual debate. Many people have been stirred up by the recent rising of the Brotherhood, a DDO organization that promotes community, free speech, and open mindedness. However redeeming these qualities are, it's worthy to note that white supremacy seems to be the foundation, and one of the requirements to join is to have a Neo-Nazi skinhead as a profile picture. I believe the basic principles of the Brotherhood are honorable, but because of its...

Information Transferred over Older Mediums Is Always More Legitimate

holla1755
levi_smiles

The older the medium over which information is transferred, the more legitimate the information is. For example, information received face-to-face from another person is always more legitimate than information received through texting on a smartphone. My thesis for this debate is similar to a quoted claim I made on Twitter on December 28, 2016 (https://twitter.com/paulemok/status/814322169119383552), "'The older the medium that information is transferred, the more legitimate the information o...
