Immigration is mostly a good thing

BubbleBee
Zarroette

I don't see what's wrong with immigration. maybe it's because white people are scared of people of colour? racism should die, and so should people's phobias. the old ways are false and change is beautiful. prove me wrong!...

Should women pay less tax?

TheCave_TheLight
RGarland

For the human race, we are attempting to achieve a utopian society where we have complete gender equality. By imposing an Act where women will be taxed less, women will have a 'head start' with their disposable income and therefore assets. Having more money to spend, women spending on themselves will promote economic growth as production will increase as demand for various products and services will increase as well (this model for economic growth will usually occur in a market capitalism system...

Should the death penalty be illegal?

EliasL
savannah1006

I believe that the death penalty should be illegal in ALL states (and the world for that matter) due to the fact that there is no crime that should be punishable by death. For example, if there is a murder (i.e. Jodi Arias), and the defendant is found guilty, the government has no right to kill him/her due to the fact that this too is murder....

Death Penalty

Ore_Ele
Danielle

Full resolution: The death penalty is an ideal form of punishment for particular criminal cases. My stance on the Death Penalty: While I support rehabilitation in as many cases as possible, there are some cases where the Death Penalty is the best option. I only believe that the DP (Death Penalty) will be of absolutly no value when we have the option of completely (with 100% certainty) brainwashing criminals to esentually make them into "new" people. Now, in order for this debate to really...

Does Charlie Hebdo Magazine deserve the 'courage' award from PEN?

LouisLion
Elord

No. What Charlie Hebdo did was not courageous. It was just plain stupid. I'm all for free speech but there's a fine line between making harmless jokes about people's ethnicity/religion and actually saying things that are offensive. Charlie Hebdo crossed that line. Charlie Hebdo was first attacked for distributing a magazine with a caricature of Muhammad on it. What was the next thing Charlie Hebdo did? THEY DISTRIBUTED ANOTHER COMIC OF MUHAMMAD. The result was Muslims rioting in Niger, kil...

Are Men more descriminated against than Women?

Flower9999
Lee001

Yes, they are. It is a common myth that women have it worse off than men in the world. You expect us to protect you, provide financial support, and pay the bills at the end of the day? If you really wanted equality, you could work hard to achieve it yourself. At my work recently, I have noticed some of my female co-workers getting promoted quite a bit due to them blurting with my boss. This infuriates me, because there is nothing I can do about it, and it is cheating to move up in society that w...

Playing video games could be compared to smoking. "A single cigarette won"t cause lung cancer, but smoking over weeks or months or even years, will increase the risk of lung cancer. According to Brad Bushman, professor of communication and psychology, In the same way constant exposure to violent video games may may have an effect of aggression....

Life and why we are all Tywin Lannister

eccentric_slippers
Bogcha

As a student, I find myself surrounded by people who, not only seek to oppress and bully the people who are open and serious about their sexuality, but also label others as gay etc based on their outward appearances. why? it isn't like that when we grow up, is it? get jobs, start families? are we oppressed throughout our whole lives unless we go with the crowd? if that's the case and I, as well as other young people from all walks of life, am destined for, then why shouldn't I declare myself...
