Should Shakespeare be taught in School

Georgia
LR4N6FTW4EVA

Shakespear should not be banned in schools as it teaches us about ENglish History, Our english culture and Shakespear even if it was a disguse made words up that today are in the english dictionary. English language was first coined by William Shakespeare which should be a good enough reason in itself. I think it's really important, we should be learning about anything that is so well known in the world, especially Shakespeare. I have found that all the analysing texts in English at my sch...

The Whole World Should Vote On The US President

mintchocs
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...

The Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip was Justified (3rd attempt)

Watchman81
Peleus

Okay, I'll try this debate one more time! Maybe the third time's the charm. My position is that Israel's decision to launch military attacks in the Gaza Strips against the terrorist group Hamas is justified. Israel's goal is to achieve a viable peace and to stop the rocket fire. The only way for this to happen is for Israel to destroy as much of Hamas' members and their rockets as possible. It is clearly apparent that Hamas does NOT desire peace with Israel. This is why they continue to la...

That the Employee Free Choice Act of 2009 serves the best interests of the American people.

"As we enter the new millennium, the question is not whether we should fully reject or wholeheartedly embrace globalization. Instead the question is whether the disparate benefits and impacts of globalization can be reordered so that our trade agreements and labor law policies no longer serve to primarily benefit corporations at the expense of workers and communities in the U.S. and around the globe." It is because the Employee Free Choice Act can answer the question that Kate Bronfenbrenner...

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...

Resolved: the public option would control costs effectively

Revolution
kkdub

During This debate, I will be arguing that the public insurance option would control the cost of health insurance effectively. My argument is that the public option would control costs because the insurance companies would have to match the prices offered by the government. The insurance companies would not be run out of business because the public option would have to be spontaneous. No funding would be received from the government, and the organization would have to make a profit to stay...

Anderson "The Spider" Silva is the best pound for pound fighter in the world.

atuck9

I argue that Anderson "The Spider" Silva has proven himself to be the best pound for pound mixed martial arts fighter in the world. Anderson Silva has recently proven himself to be the most capable mixed martial arts fighter regardless of weight class. For key terms, I define mixed martial arts as any participation in sanctioned events that incorporates the most basic mixed martial arts sanctions that must be present to permit a legally licensed mixed martial arts event in most states in the...

Fast food chains and junk food should be banned from school cafeterias.

Cpt.Price
Narwal19

Fast food chains should be banned from school cafeterias. Why? Children are getting obese every day from regularly eating fast food at school. No laws are being made to enforce it. This low-quality food is casing many illnesses, from cardiovascular disorders to ADHD, making children perform worse in school and their life. Some parents don't care enough about their child and don't decide to give them home lunches. Many children enjoy the food and don't think about the long-term effects of t...

Space exploration is a waste of time and money

chuck_norris
vcheng

A lot of people may say that space exploration should be abolished because it is a waste of money, but think of how much we have advanced in our knowledge of space. This has to be known because some of the planets and moons we have discovered are suitable for us to live on when we move from Earth, so it is essential that man knows about space and we constantly have to keep updating and developing our knowledge. "I don't think the human race will survive the next thousand years, unless we spread...
