High School Curriculum Should Be Changed

heatherash
Oliark

I will not argue that it is important for individuals to be knowledgeable in subjects such as math, science, history, etc. However, I do not believe that school teaches you what you REALLY need to know to survive in the world. Yes there are classes that one can CHOOSE to take to learn things such as accounting, however it is not mandatory. (Furthermore, do you really believe that a teenager is going to WILLINGLY take a financing class, or a politics class?) There are classes that I find to be...

The Archangel Macaroni will destroy Michael and Gabriel

DebatoryDavid

The Archangel Michael is a coward and Gabriel may be effeminate. But Macaroni is the greatest of all the Angels. The Pro position, (mine) is that the Mormon Angel Macaroni is superior to any other angel. As always my main source will be the Bible. Con is welcome to use any source, including the Book of Mormon and good luck Con....

Joshua's invasion of Jericho was anti-Jewish

The Pro position, (mine) is that Joshua, being an Ephriaimite destroyed Jericho unilaterally. As always my main source is the Bible. But this time I reserve the right to use history as well. Con is welcome to use any source and good luck. Opening: Joshua was one of the greatest generals of all time. As such he understood the threat of a Jericho left behind his army. Joshua lacked the time and the manpower to pacify. Therefore Joshua made the hard decision to utterly destroy Jericho. It was...

Resolved: Russia would have lost WWII without Allied assistance

Could Russia have won World War 2 without the help from the Western Allies? Many people believe this is so, however I respectfully disagree.As to how assistance is defined: Both military and economic assistance, not one or the other. My opponent must attempt to prove that is is likely that the Russians would have defeated the Germans in World War 2 had the Western Allies not intervened (for example, UK signs a peace tr...

Is it okay to commit a crime with a good intentions.

Skt1Faker
Atmas

Even if people commit a crime with a good reasons, offense is offense. Socrates left a famous saying 'A law is law, however undesirable it may be.' According to this quotes, we can realize that it can be a crime doesn't matter of our purpose. Also if we forgive offense because of their intention, whole criminals will say they did crime for good will. What I want to say is process is much more important that result, or purpose....

"The Purge"

VenumMMA19
TheInterlang

I would be open to a "Purge" if the Government took drastic safety precautions...As for making it like the movie, were it's uncontrolled, unmonitored, and people are free to do whatever and whenever they would like? I would be against it. But if there was a secluded area or land where those wishing to participate could go and those wishing to have no part in the event could stay safe at home, why not? Someone wants to, that is their poison to drink...Listen, everyone is entitled to their own opi...
