Smoking Packet Pictures

Nik
leethal

Perhaps my fellow countrymen and women (UK) if you by chance are a smoker like myself or if you by chance stumble across a new pack of Cigs in your travels, you will see that the government has decided oh so wisely to pass another law against us, and put pictures on the back of packs to remind us of the hellish trouble we will get in if we continue smoking, as if we didn't know already, and are passing another law that cigarettes must be served under the counter to stop i quote "impulsive" buyin...

Vigilantism is Justified when govermnment has failed to enforce the law

TheCategorical
Metz

Affirmation V: Societal welfare VC: Will to Power of societal order Thesis: The will to power is an individual's struggle against their surroundings that culminates in personal growth, and the ability to assert power. Vigilantism is justified through this struggle against the crime that has been committed. In Will to Power Nietzsche writes: "My idea is that every specific body strives to become master over all space and to extend its force (its will to power) and to thrust back all that resi...

Nadya Suleman should lose custody of her children!

chihiro
leet4A1

Nadya Suleman has obviously been USING her children for fame and money that she has (and may be receiving in the near future from Britan?).She has no real job,and has been mooching off of anyone that is gullible enough to take pity on her.She spends money beyond her means on plastic surgery and implanting an absurd amount of embryos inside her.She is,without a doubt, using her money more on herself than her children.I find it unfair that someone so self absorbed should be allowed to use her chil...

The Case For/Against Biotechnology/Bioengineering

scienceguy288
Forrest

There is so much wrong with the world at this point in time, disease, environmental destruction, agricultural problems etc. And many of these ills could be combated with the new field of biotechnology or bioengineering. I understand that the field carries with it potential risk, but there is the potential for huge reward. For example, medicine: biotechnology has the potential to cure/alleviate diseases like Hemophilia, Parkinson's, and Huntington's. Also, on the environmental front, t...

The vuvuzelas should be banned from the FIFA World Cup.

Logician
boltz93

In case anyone isn't sure what I'm talking about, check out the Wikipedia page on vuvuzelas here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vuvuzela Anyone watching a World Cup match could easily be mistaken for thinking that the crowd was made up of a swarm of bees, not humans. For people watching the game at home, this underlying buzz is simply annoying and distracting. For people watching the game in the stadium, it drowns out most of the variety of the chants, cheers and boos that make a football game...

Music Battle: Rapper Edition

untitled_entity
GeoLaureate8

So basically in this debate each side will pick a rapper (living or dead, I'd prefer you be original but if you must pick 'Pac or Biggie I guess I'll understand) and debate on why they think their rapper is more superior. This judgment will be made on four different criteria: * Voice: What kind of voice does the rapper have? Does it sound ill or has been put through the abuse of black and mild's and way too many blunts? A rapper's voice is just as important as that of any other singer, so is...

A random atheist is likely a better individual than a random Protestant

TheSunIsFarAway
Kinger

I am new here, and not sure how much time I will have so I am setting the character limit quite low (2,000). I think this will be better for a quicker succession of arguments. I wish to argue that all things being held equal, an atheist individual is likely more moral than a Christian individual. I am defining morality here in a secular sense. I do not want to see statistics on porn or victimless crimes. The definition of morality for this debate will be the net amount of observable good per...

Government should be abolished

Austriananarchist
rkkell

Before getting started, I would like to thank whoever accepts this debate and wish them good luck. That said, I will now begin my argument. In this debate, I hope to defend a radical claim, that government is unnecessary and undesirable. First, I must define what a government is. I define government as a geographical monopoly on the legal initiation of force. I define initiation of force as use of force against an individual who has not yet used force against the aggressor. Initiation of fo...
