True Communism as defined by Marx's theory can ever exist

mbryan90

By definition of the Marx theory - Communism can simply never exist. The Marx theory portrays a Communist utopia which can never work in society. It is ludicrous to believe that full Communism has/or will ever exist....

Resolved: Just governments ought to require that employers pay a living wage.

ColeTrain
Zaradi

I am against the government implementing a living wage ordinance. Please accept this debate only if you will take it seriously. Further, anyone who wishes to debate must understand that a living wage will replace the minimum wage for full time workers. Due to requests to do so, I will now provide definitions as to what each important word in the resolution means.Just: ...

Should America cut it's defense budget?

funnycn

Please be respectful and kind. Thank you for debating.We have a 17 trillion dollar debt and that debt is going to be passed on to future generations. We cannot let this continue. 56 percent of our discretionary budget goes to defense spending, not including homeland security. Our military budget is 626 billion dollars according to the President's FY2014 budget. China's is only 166 billion US dollars. Meanwhile, our students are falling behind in education, our health system needs fixi...

Extremist Islamic groups such as Isis and the Taliban are the response to unfair westernisation.

Tommy.leadbetter
Emilrose

The whole Islamic threat that is picked up by the media, is the fault of our own nations. We created the problem, whether on purpose or not, and it was because of our greed-not our misplaced good intentions. We condemn these men and portray them as evil, when they are no worse than our own governments. They resort to such violent means because they feel they have no other means, such as a modern army....

Is the United States covering up Moon Nazis?

IDontBelieve
Paleophyte

For years we have been brainwashed into thinking that we successfully went to the moon, but I believe that there's something more to this. A cover-up. What exactly, might you ask? MOON NAZIS!!!!!! Anyone who has any common sense at all can see the holes in NASA's stories and findings. I believe they are scared of what they found. They don't want the world to know of this. They tried to cover it up, but they left clues. Have you ever looked closely at the NASA logo? If you turn it upside down, in...

The obese should not be entitled to disability benefits.

Beagle_hugs

If you saw a physically handicapped person begging for food on the streets you'd help them out with a few quid (bucks) wouldn't you? You might also think it is disgraceful that disabled people are reduced to begging on the streets of a modern civilized country and decide to give money to a charity that helps handicapped people. You might even lobby the government to allocate disabled people more financial support from the public purse. And I would admire you if you did try and assist disabled...
