Communism > Capitalism

Kefka
Vi_Veri

Communism vs Capitalism So, in this world I've set up for the purposes of the debate, both theories exist, but neither has been exploited. We are a group of people trying to decide the fate of our society, and we have two theories to consider: capitalism and communism. I am the half that is arguing for communism, Vi is arguing for capitalism. All we have are the ideas and writings of those like Adam Smith and Karl Marx. Communism in essence, is far superior to Capitalism. It embodies a sy...

I hardly consider this a debate since the truth is so obvious to anyone aware of the facts. But if somone wants to take up the challenege I implore you to try. It will make my points much more powerful when I am able to rebutt yours. The rules are nil, if you have an arugment make it. If you ahve a coutner point make that too. One thing pretty universally agreed upon is that NK is an utterly evil and sad state. The part people seem to forget is that the blame of NK really doesn't lie with Nk...

Death Penalty

Ahhh, the death penalty. The government taking someone's life because they took someone else's life. What obvious hypocrisy. I disagree with the death penalty because it is immoral. First, the death penalty implies that a jury of twelve people is qualified to take life into their own hands. Does this mean that mob execution should also be made legal? Second, the death penalty becomes intolerable the very moment that someone is wrongly convicted. Death is, if anything, permanent. If some...

I have done many debates on this topic, and I have only faced one formidable opponent. To make things straight I will give some criteria for the debate. This debate is about america, and you can use other countries statistics if you would like, but relate the proof to america in one way or another. First round is acceptance and saying where you stand on the topic and provide reasons so the reader can understand this better. I am for gun rights. 1. protected my the constitution 2. lo...

Capitalism is great

RightIAm
Ore_Ele

Capitalism has its problems but it's the best economic system. Our society runs fine, no extremes people can do what they want within fundemental laws, it's all good. We are basically fairly free. Economics for me is all about the greater good, with capitalism a few get screwed so evryone can enjoy prosperity, free markets rule!! I basically agree with the current system we have, banks stimulate economic growth, it was thanks to the bank that we were living the high life the past 10 years. The b...

Conservatives are dying out.

trayhayes

Following the mainstream news and current events closely, I have begun to notice over the past five years that true conservatives are a dying breed. I am in favor of this. It is only logical to think that as the world progresses and evolves, that more of society begins to think with an open-mind and becomes more intelligent and tolerant, thus becoming more liberal. Powerful conservatives are losing their grip on political influence, this is more evident now more than ever in the Republican prima...

I am happy to debate such a well versed debater in this debate, and hope it is civil and non repetitive. Though that is bound to happen. In the comments we are arguing law, so make legal arguments (states interests, constitution etc.) I do not know how long my case will be, but it will be mainly a secular case to homosexual marriage. Secular case to Gay marriage I. What marriage is In this debate, it is essential to answer the following questions: a) What is marriage? b) Why sho...
