Thank you for participating in this debate. I will be arguing in favor of the view that objective morality is an incoherent concept. The term "objective" is generally understood to mean something that is independent of observation and not subject to opinion or interpretation.

DrIVanHopekins

Hello comrades, My argument today is how Joseph Stalin, possibly the most famous Communist in world history, kept the Soviet Union from being the best country it could have been and effectively tainted communism with his reign, changing its ideology for the worse and negatively influencing the future of communism. Here are my reasons: 1. Lack of Equality One of the very core beliefs of Marxism is the destruction of Social Classes and the rights and powers of the Individual. As well as c...

I believe that rationality is good because......a) Why should we let society be destroyed by simple human nature? Shouldn't we let the empirical judgements of rationality rule over us? While it might mean seeing things we don't like, the effects, no matter how emotionally scarring the content is, and any interpretation is this is fair game because it doesn't matter how it was intended, the empirical content of the speech, what matters is the receiving of said speech....

mschechtel17
wrinkledinkle

Specifically the Two-Party system paradigm is incapable of accurately representing the diversity of ideas in America. I don't have an exact political system to replace the Two-Party system with, but will argue that a new one should be created. This is a free-form debate. I will argue for the Pro Just accept and state your argument and r...
