The plethora, Version 2

LR4N6FTW4EVA
Bnesiba

I will provide a list of topics, choose one, you're CON, I'm PRO. Then in R2 I go and post. Note, I am playing Devil's advocate in some places. 1. Most nonhuman Animal's do not deserve rights. 2. Utilitarianism is superior to Kantianism. 3. Sarah Palin is not as incompetent as she is made out to be. 4. Cannibalism of dead people should be socially acceptable, if not encouraged. 5. Agriculture was a mistake. 6. Anarchy could feasibly work. 7. Functionalism is a flawed theory of mind. 8....

It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people.

I stand for the affirmative in the case of "It is morally permissible to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people". I stand for the resolution and feel that it is morally permissible when only the person being killed, which in a different term to have their life put to an end, has agreed to being used in such a manner to save other lives. The scenario the resolution implies will not work for all situations and should not be used for all situations. Societies should not...

The Whole World Should Vote On The US President

fo-shizzle0855

Only US citizens should vote as they are the ones that are fundamentally subjected to government treatment - all the decisions made by the US president have a direct effect on the American people; the government is supposed to "govern" its people (ie. it should have a direct tie with the people and reflect the general peoples' decisions, as ultimately it serves to "serve" the people). US citizens should be the priority of the US government and president, they should have the sole right and power...

Cloning

gibsonm496
Miyasana

I was recently assigned a persuasion paper for school. My chosen topic is cloning. Before I began my research I knew very little about the topic, only that it was highly controversial. But after only some beginning research I now believe otherwise. Cloning is a process that should be continued. I feel this way because cloning has many health benefits. Such as, cloning can be used to clone failing organs to replace old, or damaged ones. Also, by cloning a child from a single parent hereditary d...

I think that at school, we should be able to wear pajamas. My School district says that p.j's are not allowed. If the School wants us to relax and be comfortable than let us wear pajamas...

Death Penalty

ajbala94
HeedMyFeed

First of all I would like to make my "map points" as to why I am oppose to the death penalty. 1. The cost One my argue by logic that the cost is much higher for life imprisonment because you would have to feed him everyday etc.... for the rest of their lives right. # A 2003 legislative audit in Kansas found that the estimated cost of a death penalty case was 70% more than the cost of a comparable non-death penalty case. Death penalty case costs were counted through to execution (median co...

Bush Lied People Died? Part II

Watchman81
Seerss

Okay, so I tried this debate once, but didn't get a good opponent. Hopefully this one will work better. Here is my opening argument. In this debate, I am arguing that President Bush did NOT lie in order to justify the United State's invasion of Iraq. Whether or not the United State's invasion of Iraq was justifiable or not is irrelevant to this debate. I am arguing against the popular belief that Bush used deception in order to justify the US' invasion of Iraq. The reason we went to war wa...

In this round I will be debating affirmative for the following resolution: "Resolved: Vigilantism is justified when the government has failed to enforce the law." For clarification I offer the following definitions: vigilantism- "The act of a citizen who takes the law into his or her own hands by apprehending and punishing suspected criminals."; when-at any time; government-the political direction and control exercised over the actions of the members, citizens, or inhabitants of communities...
