People have the right to be euthanized.

Danielle
Jerry947

Jerry947 has claimed that "people have no right to get themselves killed [by euthanasia]." In this debate, I hope to convince him and the audience that he is incorrect. Should he accept this debate, I will begin my arguments in Round 2. Thanks....

The English Language Doesn't Have OFFICIAL Rules

Owlblocks
missmozart

The English language does not, nor can have, official rules. This is because the English language is a commonly agreed upon way of speaking that evolved over time and still evolves. Some might say that Oxford, or some other authority has the authority to determine the language's rules, and while these are generally accepted from an academic standpoint, the English language is a template upon which we build our own, personal interpretation. If Oxford had invented the language, they would have aut...

Marijuana Legislation should not pass.

Medical marijuana as well as recreational use of marijuana should not be legalized in the United States. I do not live elsewhere so i wont include any other countries. Medical marijuana may have certain benefits, but they are not benefits that out do any other type of medication allotted. Marijuana is a drug. It fogs up your brain and changes your perceptional views of reality; as well as your five sense. Cocaine is also a drug. Cocaine has some benefits. It wakes you up. So should cocaine be...

Not only are we mice going for the same trap, but we won't do anything about it. Sure it isn't a easy thing to do, but it needs to be done. Ban Alcohol....

Australia Day should be changed.

I strongly believe that Australia Day should be moved. On the 26th of January we all celebrate the day that was once called the "First Landing" or "Foundation Day" when now it is reflected as the day of "mourning" by Aboriginal people. The main reason this statement has been argued over for many, many years is because of the suffering and pain that endured on Australia day. The history of our beautiful country is still remembered and treasured by all of us because we are proud of who we are and...

Several schools can...
