YassineB

BackgroundMany people are of the opinion that there is such a thing as a "just war" or a war where a nation's moral fibre remains intact. What this debate is meant to demonstrate is either:1) The cost of moral fibre2) That if we were to ever fight an enemy whose tactical and strategic position was equal to ours, the first casualty of war will be morality....

Woodrow Wilson defending the Treaty of Versailles I want to remind you how the permanency of peace is at the heart of this treaty. This is not merely a treaty of peace with Germany... it is nothing less than world settlement, and at the center of that stands the covenant for the future we call the Covenant of the League of Nations. Without it the treaty can not be worked and without it it is a mere temporary arrangement with Germany. The covenant of the League of Nations is the instrumentality...

Affirmative Action Should be Disallowed

Varrack
TBR

I, Pro, shall be arguing that racial affirmative action should be disallowed. Gender is also a typical consequence of it, but I want to focus this debate on the racial/ethnic aspect of it. I will be arguing that using racial preferences over merit when accepting students into colleges or hiring job applicants is discriminatory and unfair. Round 1: Acceptance Round 2: Pro presents case/Con rebuts Round 3 & 4: Counter rebuttals The burden of proof is upon me. It is Con's job to rebut my ca...

The Life at Conception Act would effectively negate the constitutional right to abortion

philochristos

I've invited philochristos to this debate. I look forward to our exchange. This debate is inspired by another currently-running debate about whether Congress should pass the Life at Conception Act. The debate can be found here: http://www.debate.org/debate/69932/ And the text of the bill can be found here: https://www.congress.gov/bill/113th-congress/house-bill/1091/text I am intrigued by a related question not being discussed in that debate. The proponents of the bill argue that the...
