THW: Pull the lever in the "trolley problem".

PsychicPhysicist
jsmill

The problem is as follows: There are five people on a track, and they are about to be run over by a runaway trolley! However, you are next to a switch which, if you pull, will divert the trolley onto a different track, hitting the one person who is on that track, instead. We are assuming that the only way to save the five people is to pull the lever- you can't yell at them to move off the track, for instance. We're also assuming that the trolley is absolutely guaranteed to hit and kill who...

There is so much information on the topic that rather than reiterate all of it I will make a short summary. Also burden of proof will be 51% on my opponent and 49% on me. Manmade global climate change is the general increase in temperature at rapid rates that is mainly caused by CO2 from industry increases. Carbon dioxide is at 404.48 parts per million and the temperature has increased 1.4 degrees Fahrenheit since 1880. [0]Although 1.4 degrees doesn't sou...

Rap Battle 2!

JimShady
NoCoolNameNate

I'm in the mood for some more rap battling. Same rules...no copy and pasting, and fight hard. I prefer that we do 32 bars, which means eight stanzas of four lines each. But if you have a counter-proposal, let me hear it. First Round is for acceptance, we can start on Round 2....

Video games do not cause violence`

Natsu145
Rhiannon.Essex

Hello there, as you can tell by the title, I am going to be debating on whether or not video games cause violence. I think that video games do not cause any violence what so ever and can even benefit you in some ways. There are no specific rules for this debate except for the fact that round one is acceptance. And with that said, I wish my opponent good luck....

Japanese internment by the U.S. during WW2 was justified

Wylted
Danielle

Danielle please read round one again before accepting. Let me know if anything is unfair to either of us so it can be amended. I hate FDR and I like using this as an example of how horrible of a human being he was, but I have a confession. As bad as his policies were, the policy in question was justified. It was not a result of racism or hysteria, but the most logical course of action given the available information. Democrats, please do a better job defending your s...
