Objectivity
picsbad

This is for Rosalie's beginner tournament, the affirmative will be advocating for a Minarchist state which is defined as: Minarchism (also known as minimal statism) is a political philosophy and a form of libertarianism. It is variously defined by sources. In the strictest sense, it holds that states ought to exist (as opposed to anarchy), that their only legitimate function is the protection of individuals from aggression, theft, breach of contract, and fraud, and that the only legitimate g...

TUF

The Resolution: The USFG Should Accept Syrian Refugees. Summary: With the threat of ISIS in the middle east, and the civil war in Syria, a number of refugees have sought nations like the US to call their new home.

'Terrorism' tends to refer to violent acts by non-state actors. In a world where states tend to have the monopoly on violence, the overwhelming majority of violence is actually state-sponsored. If you agree that violence is the problem, it follows that a great focus on terrorism is a red herring. This was exemplified before the First World War, when there was a great moral panic about terrorism, before states butchered hundreds of thousands of people. Discuss!...

This is because it seems to me that depriving people of rights, Liberty, property, freedom, the ability to work in many professional careers, and the right to be secure in their...

Samakubba
NothingSpecial99

Gay marriage? Abortion? Most issues in our society have been solved due to the Judicial branch's Supreme Court . Their decisions have created our society as it is today. Their decisions have always targeted the freedom of all Americans. In fact, their decisions have kept separation between church and state. The Supreme Court is always taking leaps in history as it changes our society, therefore it is the best branch....
