Establishing a perfect society

Segei

In today's society, the majority of all people are under the reign of the top one percent. While this might be okay in a capitalist society, we really ought to look into establishing communism universally. Instead of a select minority having steak and potatoes every night, every family could be issued a single piece of bread and a water bottle to share. Less people would die of hunger world wide. If all the governments in the world combined into one huge mega-power, fueled of course, by communis...

We send people to prison AS punishment - not FOR punishment

InfluentialImpact

If you poke an animal with a sharp stick through the bars of his cage, you better not EVER let him out.. Instinctively, we know that to be true.. Yet, we poke our prisoners through the bars of their cages.. And, then we let 'em OUT.. I think that's CRAZY. I'd like to debate someone who thinks I'M nuts, and the system is just fine.. The first round is for acceptance, and the last three is where you take your best shot.. PS> I'm a newbie.. Hope I'm getting things right......

Non-citizens/permanent residents should be able to run for president in America.

I believe that if you live in a country as a permanent resident you should still be able to run for president in America. A non-citizen could easily care just as much for a country as someone who was born there. Even if you don't believe that if you believe that democracy then it shouldn't be a problem to let these people run for president. Also, it is part of our human rights to not be discriminated against by country of birth. While there are some human rights considered debatable, the right...

Should Marijuana be Legalized Countrywide?

noateiblum
ellaashley

As many of us well know, alcohol is legal in the US at the age of 21, and marijuana is not. But did you know that alcohol actually can be worse for your body than marijuana? Many people disagree on the controversial issue of whether marijuana should be legal, but I believe that marijuana should be legalized federally for may reasons. I believe that it should be legalized because there is ample evidence proving that marijuana is actually better for your body than alcohol. There is evidence to pro...

should torture be used against terrorists

giantsbane

Many people disagree about whether torture should be used on known terrorists. I believe that torture should be used for various reasons. One reason is torture could prevent lots of "collateral damage", by torturing a terrorist we could find a bomb that would have killed many people if we had not found it. " if we are willing to act in a way that guarantees the misery and death of some considerable number of innocent children, why spare the rod with known terrorists? This shows how if we torture...

ApatheticVV

Gender identity is a widely debated topic that many of us are divided upon. I want to hear the opinions of others and hear the opposite of my opinion. My opinion is that, as basic biology states, there is 2-3 genders (debatable), no more....
