Do wars help secure the average person, mind and body both?

HGFLYER

When people feel like they need to begin a war, what are their motives? There could be many reasons why, but some examples could be: < New land to own < Merely conquering < Wanted resources found in the territory they want < To get rid of a certain race, religion, or belief < To save their country from any threats they fear < They hate the opponent < Etc. So, yes, there are more reasons, reasonable or not, for which a country or government would actually want to start a war. But how d...

We Have A Right To Own Guns!

Jakeeee

Do you believe in freedom and your rights as a citizen of the United States of America? The U.S. has 27 amendments that give the citizens certain rights. There is one amendment that is on the path to being taken away. The second amendment states that "A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed." There has been lots of discussion about this right. Do you think that the government should be playin...

Same-Sex Marriage Should Be Legal in the United States

Freeman
Contradiction

For my part of the debate, I'll be arguing that same-sex marriage should be legal in the United States. Accordingly, in this debate I'm going to defend two basic contentions. First, there are no legally tenable reasons to ban same-sex marriage. And secondly, there are good reasons to think th...

Resolved: Hitler vs Justin Bieber

imabench
YYW

After doing thorough research I have failed to find a single debate that addresses the issue of who is more evil, Hitler or Justin Bieber? This is an issue that millions of people ask themselves every day, and it is apalling that this topic has not been debated here on DDO. After making this discovery I realized that as the head troll of the site it is my sworn duty to bring this legendary debate ready to happen into fruition, and I will be...

Abortion

SomeoneWhoIsAlive
IncognitoTurtle

I am going to be arguing that abortion is wrong. Round 1 will be definitions and outline of argument. Abortion: the intentional ending of a pregnancy I will be arguing that: 1. Abortion is in violation of human rights, and goes against the original hippocratic oath. 2. Doctors aren't always right about the physical condition and life expectancy of a baby before birth 3. The medical community is pressuring women to have abortions if there is any complications...
