The Chinese Cultural Revolution Positively Impacted China's Well-Being

The Chinese Cultural Revolution positively impacted China despite some belief. Mao Zedong took a great step forward to revolutionize China, and its society. He said, "China will be free of inequality, poverty and foreign domination." which he succeeded to achieve. Peasants were guaranteed income and education. In fact, the literacy rate before the Chinese Cultural Revolution was a mere 15-25% also lacking national curricular goals; but after 1949 under Mao's new leadership, China's literacy rate...

Should Gay Marriage Be Legal In America

KCole
MagicAintReal

I am a Christian, and I strongly believe and know that gay marriages are wrong. The Bible talks in several different places that it is wrong. Christianity is what America was built on, so why abandon it now and listen to pop culture that's telling us that gay marriages is okay? forbid gay marriages...

Round one is for acceptance only. I don't care about proper formatting, I only wish for my opponent to argue his/her point as best as possible. As Pro, I will attempt to explain why LGBTQ equality is not as important as people make it out to be. Good luck!...

when talking about the civil war people often go back and forth between whether it was about slavery, or about states' rights. the reality, is that it was about about both, and some choose to emphasize one or the other aspect of it. but the war was only there, cause the north drew a line in the sand about what was acceptable despite states' rights, and they said slavery wasn't, and the south drew a line in the sand and said it was per states' rights. slavery was an impetus. that means the whole...

Bubble Gum Should Be Allowed in Schools

MrJosh

I think bubble gum should be allowed in schools. As you can see, according to http://www.scientificamerican.com/podcast/episode/gum-chewing-may-improve-concentrati-13-03-26/ ,Gum may improve concentration in class. It states that two groups of twenty people had to listen to an audio track for half an hour. The groups that chewed gum recited the numbers with better accuracy and better speed. This is my first argument to show that bubble gum should be allowed in schools....
