UtherPenguin
TheJuniorVarsityNovice

This is the rematch to a previous debate that I have forfeited to : http://www.debate.org/debates/Socialism-is-an-overall-a-better-system-than-Capitalism-Devils-Advocate-debate/1/ The same rules apply in this debate as it had in the previous one but to reclarify here are the rules: - Both sides are playing the role of "Devil's Adovcate" - Burden of Proof is held by both sides (Both sides must prove that overall the system they argue for is better then the one that their opponent argues for)...

Democracy is the best ruling system

Sadat_Hossain
18Karl

Democracy has so long been being stated the best ruling system. I have no problem confessing that. But in the context of today's instable era, democracy has started to leak many flaws. Its case can be compared to a building, having many stories and also, many flaws. Democracy is quite entirely irrelevant in this century. Democracy leads us to something which we should not be led to. The debate here is to state whether democracy is the best system or not. My opponent will go in favour of democrac...

Common Core has become a hot button topic in the United States as more and more schools start to adapt to the standards. These standards are some of the most high-quality standards produced in the subject areas of Mathematics and English Language Arts. According to Core Standards, the Common Core website, "For years, the academic progress of our nation"s students has been stagnant, and we have lost ground to our international peers.

Modern Feminism

churr097
Robert_Weiler

"Modern feminism is riddled with false information such as the wage gap, and shirtless protesting is stupid and idiotic. When a man wears a shirt with a half naked woman on it, feminists say he can't wear it, but when feminists get accused of wearing sexual and/ or provocative clothing, they say they can wear whatever they want? Which one is it feminists? Lets be honest here, if you really care about women's rights, go to a third world country and help out women with NO rights." -collinator405 F...

The death penalty must be abolished.

NiBrown
16kadams

There is no justification for allowing the death penalty to continue if innocent lives are being lost. According to a recent study, if all death-sentenced defendants remained under sentence of death indefinitely at least 4.1% would be exonerated(1). As a result, we must pause to consider how many innocent lives have been mercilessly taken by the death penalty and those who instigate it. How can we justify such senseless killing and mask it as some twisted form of justice? With all the technology...

Is Narendra Modi justifying being India's Leader?

PreetyGurditta
Answif

The crumbling AAP has its convenor missing on more than one occasions when it is required the most. Rahul Gandhi, the president to be of Congress, is still not back from his vacation. It is only Narendra Modi who is constantly working towards the country's progress. Is it only me feeling gratitude towards Mr. Modi or is he actually doing well ?...

Quotation Philosopher Debate - Utilitarianism (pro) vs. Deontology (con)

Surrealism
Philocat

This is just a little experiment I'd like to try out. The essence of this is that it is a "quatation debate" meaning that we will debate the topic, in this case Utilitarianism vs. Deontology, using only quotations from the relevant philosophers.Rebuttals will be less important here, as we will be mostly trying to build our case better than our opponent. That is why there are only three rounds.Round One - Acceptance and state your most important philosopher.
