Should morality apply to everyone, regardless of who you are?

Victor_Finngall

If stealing, threats of force, murder, torture, abduction and slavery is immoral for the average person, shouldn't it also be immoral for government (which is made up of people)? If not, what is morality then, and why should we be moral?...

Affirmative action is warranted, yet, not equivalent to reparations for slavery.

Affirmative action is a system that was designed to counteract the various prejudices, biases and shortcomings that have been proven to exist in the current system. Though commonly mistaken as solely for melaninated people, affirmative action makes exceptions and allowances for many different groups of people. [i.e. handicapped, women, etc.] Shared BoP Opponent must show how affirmative action is an unwarranted policy that aids only melaninated individuals. Opponent must also prove how affi...

The Khan Academy has two videos, pension obligations and Illinois pension obligations that I ask the opponent to watch prior to taking the debate. They're free to watch as a guest. https://www.khanacademy.org/humanities/history/American%20civics/american-civics/v/pension-obligations...

My brother (35) is married to a woman (49) who has a daughter and two grandchildren. My brother had never been married before and he has no children. Both, my brother and his wife have good jobs with good income. My husband and I are also financially stable. However, my mother and my sister has a medium to low income. My sister-in-law (49) is arguing that parents must help their children but a married couple does not have to help grown up members of the family (unless they are children). There...

Jesus intended to return within the lifetimes of his peers

I’ll begin by making my position clear. I’m an atheist and I don’t think god exists, and I certainly don’t think Jesus rose from the dead. However, I think he may indeed have been a man, and so I will argue from scripture to prove my side (although I also think the scripture was thoroughly man-made).The Resolution: Jesus intended to retu...

I am a student myself and feel that we should be tested on the work we do in class and also the amount we contribute to lessons. I can guarantee that children work and perform better this way. I, myself, contribute quite a lot in class and generally do well in work and course work. This should be what we get graded on. Written tests only show a small proportion of the work we do well. If the examiners came in for a week to see our classes then we would probably be able to achieve much more....

Evolution is impossible to prove.

Mike-the-wise-guy
Aran55633

First round is for acceptance. The BoP is on the con. They must prove logically, and scientifically that Darwinian evolution is in fact a reality. They must also provide examples of Darwinian evolution (change from one 'kind' to another. Kind as in family such as the cat family, tigers, house cats, and lions). If the pro cannot provide an observable example of Darwinian evolution, they forfeit the debate....
