There is a need for old age homes in this generation

prefdave
soumya_a_thomas

In this time and age, where money is the main aim for many people, parents who spend all their money and time to raise a child, are finally rejected by the very same child, and are dumped of at a pleasant looking 'Old Age Home' for the 'good' of their parents. Now for people looking at these homes from the outside, they look like heaven on earth, with anything you can ask for. But the parents who are sent there endure a feeling of pain that cannot be described- the pain of rejection. Why do we h...

Rebuttal to opening arguments and presentation/elaboration on main arguments. 3. Rebuttal to the presentation/elaboration of main arguments. New information can be i...

Our Progress Trap: Should we stop engaging in industry and encourage population control?

Jadeydid
Preston

In the documentary entitled Surviving Progress, great minds come together to assess the developed world's situation in relation to our greatest resource, the earth. I am arguing that the way out of a progress trap is to stop developing technology and industry, which have grown to such a scale as to classify as modern addictions. In many great civilizations in the past, the progress trap has resulted in a tumultuous decline. Consider the issues of sustainability, the growth of modern society, pop...

Our society is at the worst its ever been.

I believe that our society is at the worst it has ever been as the generations go on and on. Society has made girls/women think that there meant to be skinny and have large breasts and if you don't then your not a real woman or girl. Society has made boys/men think that there meant to have abs and be really fit in order to be hot. in our society everyone is supposed to have the same clothes and technology to fit in. Everyone's has to go by the latest trends. I'm not saying that everyone's judg...

THBT denial of rights of an individual can be made only if it infringes upon the rights of another.

UNSTABLE
Mike_10-4

I think that a person's right should be denied only if it infringes upon the rights of another and not when it causes harm to those who exercise the rights themselves.Like smoking should only be banned if it affects others(like passive smokers). But a person should be allowed to smoke if they want in private without affecting others...

Australia doesn't exist.

There's no proof that Australia exists. For all I know it's made up. It's just fake information being shown on the news with a bunch of rehearsed stuff about australian animals that may not even exist. Is this some sort of twisted hoax?...

Men are Discriminated Against in the United States

CordialCongressman
Atheist-Independent

In this debate, I (pro) will argue that men face greater social and legal discrimination in the United States than women. The burden of proof will rest on the pro (myself). I ask that debate on this issue be civil. The first round will be for introductions only, the second round will be only for opening arguments (no rebuttals), and the third and fourth rounds will be a rebuttals and closings, respectively. No new argument may be posted in the third round unless it is to rebut a prior argumen...

Does rape justify having an abortion?

ark97pink
TruthHurts

Please keep the first round solely for acceptance. I have taken the stance that being a victim of rape does not justify having an abortion. I am writing an opinion paper on this topic for a entrance exam for school and I am interested in learning the other side to this argument. I am sure this debate will greatly benefit my paper and I appreciate your time....

Should internet piracy be legalised?

Speakerfrthedead
AlexanderOc

(note: this is not an acceptance round) I think Piracy should be legalised. Here are the reasons why; 1. Free media files. High quality music, movies and other media will be free for use. Consumers use less money on entertainment and can focus that money on neccessary goods like food and water. This means consumer lifestyle in Country X will be improved. 2. Media files such as music and other things are binary information with tiny amounts of mass. Why do we have to pay more just bec...
