Famous Poems: Poetry Competition

Ajabi
DarthVitiosus

Greetings! This is a poetry debate. You can post your own poems, though you're free to post any famous/infamous work so long as you give a citation. Though that is not all you also need to provide an explanation of the poem, a critical examination if you will in favor of your poem. You are not allowed to adress the poem of the opponent, simply write an exposition of the poem that you have chosen. The poem should not be too long, and...

Should the movie "The Interview" have been banned in the first place?

ltbloom
WillRiley

-First this is NOT a debate about N Korea or blackmail by hacking. I agree that both are bad. This is a PURE question of whether the movie should have been banned in the first place. -I say Yes because -Similar to how you can't yell fire in a building, there should be a line set here that should have banned this movie. Not saying they're the same thing, of course, but we do have laws that limit free speech when public safety is at risk. Public safety is at risk here (regardless of how muc...

Target Levels in Schools.

First off, I live in the United Kingdom. I'm not sure if you have target levels in other countries. In case you don't, here's effectively what happens. At the start of the year in Secondary Schools in the UK, your targets for the next 3 years are set. They're based off your attainment in Year 6. Personally, I am against the setting of targets, for the following reasons. They can set people in the state of mind that they can't achieve higher than their targets. They can cause people t...

Homeopathy is a valid form of medicine

SarcasticMethod
Madmanwithabluebox

In this debate I and my opponent will debate the claim that homeopathy is a valid form of medicine. I would like that all non-trivial claims are backed up either by empirical evidence or logical reasoning. Stick to standard English grammar and spelling, but don't call anyone out on their spelling, as it would slow down the debate. Also, try to write responses like you might design a skirt: long enough to cover all the details, but short enough to keep you excited. 1st round: Definitions 2nd ro...

And this is the doctor where there were 3 different masters, we are introduced to Davros and how the daleks were created. We also meet Romana. SO in conclusion The 4th Doctor is the better doctor. I patiently await my opponents arguments....

This House Would prohibit the emigration of medical personnel to developed countries

Mritter22

NOTE: This is an official Connecticut Debate Association resolution. The third-world countries need doctors to help combat Ebola, this is a fact, however the doctors in Sierra Leone and Africa aren't that well trained. They need better training and where do they get it? Countries such as the United States, the United Kingdom, Canada, and other first-world countries. This resolution bars them from getting the training they need to help their people...

Gay marriage

Gay Marriage- Taking away Love "A life without love is no life at all." "Leonardo Di Vinci. By not allowing gay marriage, the privilege of eternal love is taken away. Homosexual couples should be allowed to marry, because they deserve the same rights as straight couples, it will give children a healthy home by helping gay couples adopt, and will help the economy. Homosexual couples deserve the same rights and legal benefits as heterosexual couples. Michelle Johnson, former editor for the Bost...
