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

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...

should waitresses/waiters get paid based on how they use their manners vs. group pay?

Flats

I think they should because if they are really well and some one else is horrible and it is a group pay then they are both not getting what they deserve. one person is getting more the other is getting less which is not fair making it to were others will think you can do nothing and get money and everyone would stop working nothing would get done and there would be no more employees no more jobs no more work no more paychecks no more civilized store runs a rise in theft and no way this is ok.......

Should abortion be abolished or permitted by law?

It's one of the most polarising moral issues - most people are on one side or the other, very few are undecided. I consider myself a...

Feminism is stupid

phdebater
PointyDelta

I do believe is stupid and its existence in the modern world is nothing but a hindrance to modernization. Feminism is said to be a movement against the patriarchy and making the world for both male and female equal when in fact feminism is not doing that. Most feminists are only fighting for their self-interests and are actually not tackling about the important issues feminism should be talking about. They'd rather talk about the imaginary pay gap, the 52 genders in existence, acceptance of f...

We should not stop people from committing suicide.

rissarissaroo

From a scientific standpoint, the main reason we should not try and stop people from committing suicide, is because mental illnesses are often hereditary. The ultimate goal for all animals, (humans included) is reproduction. So, if a human with mental illness succeeds as a human being, and they reproduce, then that offspring is weaker, because of the mental illness. Suicide is the closest thing humans have to natural selection. If someone has a chemical imbalance, they have an imperfect brain, a...

Is Pre-Emptive Warfare Morally Justified?

BryanMullinsNOCHRISTMAS2

Hungarian mathematician Paul Erdos once said, "Suppose aliens invade the earth and threaten to obliterate it in a year's time unless human beings can find the Ramsey number for red five and blue five. We could marshal the world's best minds and fastest computers, and, within a year, we could probably calculate the value. If the aliens demanded the Ramsey number for red six and blue six, however, we would have no choice but to launch a pre-emptive attack." In ties with this, I am resolved that pr...
