Is the act of civil disobedience in democracies sometimes necessary?

RickiNodriguez
Wylted

In life sometimes what a body of people say is wrong. Should we accept that? We've adopted a holiday in American to celebrate Dr. King who stood up against the government itself and died for what he believed. Now that would be considered civil disobedience....

Persons Convicted of Pedophilic Crimes Should be Treated and Not Incarcerated in All Instances

swagner713
LoLazsm

1. Treating selective offenders for pedophilic acts instead of incarcerating them in all instances allows more offenders the opportunity to reduce or prevent the expression of pedophilic behavior. 2. Giving pedophiles a greater opportunity to reduce or prevent their behavior decreases the likelihood of re-offending. 3. Persons convicted of pedophilic crimes should be sent to involuntary civil commitment hospitals rather than being incarcerated. 4. Civil commitment hospitals can provide incess...

Race is unnecessary in society.

Thinkblot
kasmic

Welcome to this debate. This is my first debate, so excuse me if I do anything incorrectly. This debate will discuss whether race is necessary in society or not. race- each of the major divisions of humankind, having distinct physical characteristics. Please note that race is different from culture, as culture is a social group, and race is purely a physical classification. The main question here is, "Is race necessary for our society to function? Why or why not?" ROUND 1- Present...

Proposed changes to the prison system

gordonjames
DarthVitiosus

The prison system is in need of reform. We should each suggest changes in the way we deal with crime that we think would improve life for society as a whole. This may also include ideas about voting rights, immigration and citizenship. - include thoughts on Capital punishment, work gangs, sentencing recommendations, parole and support after release. If you don't want to take this debate, I'll open it to the public, but I really liked your debate question. 1. Round 1 is for presentation o...

Its wrong that our civilization lies to the children about Santa Claus

Lukas8
RobertMcclureSmith

I don't want to sound like a crazy fanatic, who"s trying everything to prove that Santa doesn't exist, but we all know that he doesn't and I'm going to debate peacefully about it. The first round is only to accept the debate. The debate, may go a bit off topic. And CON is supposed to say a nice argument, why do we still have to lie to our children about Santa Claus (like tradition"). In mine opinion its quite wrong to lie to our children, every generation, on and on, and on, and on,on" Why ca...

Men should work and women should stay home and look after the children

jess8888
Sciencegeek

Women and men should work and get paid and women shouldn't have to stay at home to look after the children. Both genders offer different skills which are valuable to society. Just as those skills can be utilised in a home setting, they can also be used in a boardroom. Over the years, women have fought for equality and the right to work. It isn't fair that a man should have to work and make the money while the woman stays at home. If men and women work, it also increases the income in that hou...

'White' flight stems from subliminal guilt and a desire to have an unjust advantage

mentalist
gomergcc

The scenario of 'white' flight that is manifested in the United States stems from the subliminal guilt of non-melaninated peoples regarding the past and present systems of racial and economic bias and discrimination developed,propagated and maintained by the evaders and their ancestors. The scenario also emanates from a desire of those evaders to procure and maintain an unjust and inequitable advantage in areas such as housing, schooling, etc.. Shared Bop Con will have to show that 'white' flig...

Gun Right, Again I Know, Extreme vs Withdrawn

dbushwacker
Voiceless

Hey ladies and gents :). Now I know what you're thinking," Man, not another gun debate," but today myself and my friend Voiceless will be arguing from an Extreme ( argued on behalf of myself) and an Anti ( argued on behalf of Voiceless ) firearm point of view. We hope not only to argue on the behalf of our fellow debaters, but also to come to a fair and equally recognizable compromise between the two parties. Comments are greatly encouraged along with circumstantial evidence for both sides to us...
