True Communism is Not Evil

Pythasis
Feyerabend

My opponent may either choose to (1) accept the debate in the first round without arguing, or (2) argue in the first round and not argue in the last. Communism: a socioeconomic order structured upon the common ownership of the means of production, absence of social classes, money, and the state, as well as a social, political, and economic ideology and movement that aims to establish this social order. I am looking forward to a serious debate.

Should cell phones be permitted in school

Hamlind
banana1234

I believe cell phones should be permitted in school because students could use them for educational purposes, to ward off boredom during free periods, and for safety. With the variety of educational apps available, technology in the classroom is an effective teaching/learning tool. Most students carry their cell phones anyway. Why not utilize them within the classroom learning environment positively. Many school districts do not have the funds available to provided computers or tablets for e...

Students should be allowed to be on their phones during school hours.

Numberz7522

Phones are devices that have the ability to be used for lots of things these days, entertainment, connections between friends and family, and most importantly, it has the power to go on the internet. I will be listing the reasons why students should be allowed to be on their phones. One very good "con" reasoning would be that phones distract the user of the phone, and could very well distract the students around the user of the phone. Lets do an example and have the debate going from there. S...

atheism is a religion

lbpolyhs
Furyan5

Okay so you stated in a previous argument about atheism having a god, and worshiping temples, and holy books. I think that you are making up these things to and get your point across.
