Regulation harms and defeats capitalism.

wjmelements
Mangani

I affirm: Regulation harms a capitalist system. Regulation limits liberty. Liberty is threatened by regulation. Liberty, among other things, is at stake. Further, regulation worsens depressions and limits one's potential in a capitalist system. The definitions: Regulation-A principle, rule, or law designed to control or govern conduct. http://www.thefreedictionary.com/regulation This does not mean a regulation that limits traditionally immoral behavior (rape, murder, etc.).This certianly me...

The United States should allow the limited use of torture.

Freeman
J.Kenyon

The limited use of torture should be permitted in the United States in order to safeguard the wellbeing of the general public. This policy should be put in place because torture can be both an effective means of acquiring information, and it can be reasonably justified in some circumstances. These circumstances may include any case where tremendous amounts of human wellbeing are placed in jeopardy. Undoubtedly, some may be worried that allowing this policy would pave the way for all sorts of unn...

Kleptin, Logical-Master, and Yraelz are all the same person.

FalseReality

While I encourage the idea that we should all be the same debaters because it makes me look good, it doesn't change the fact that the three of us being the same debaters would be rather impossible. Anyone out there have some amazing reasons to prove your claim?...

Gay Marriage

Bruin2006
16kadams

Homosexuals, like heterosexuals, neither chose their sexual orientation, nor should they be denied the same legal rights heterosexuals enjoy simply because they were born different from what is considered "the norm." Every respectable scientific organization in the world, including the American Psychological Association, says that sexual orientation is connected to biological factors and cannot be changed. Just as it is wrong to deny legal rights to blacks, women, and people born left-handed...

9/11 was an inside job and the official 9/11 Commission Report does not explain what really happened

heart_of_the_matter
JustCallMeTarzan

Hello. I am for the Pro. side of this debate. I will show you very convincing evidence of why 9/11 was an inside job and also that the official 9/11 Commission Report does not explain what really happened. After I do that, or if you are convinced that I have done that effectively, then I invite you to vote "Pro". Thank you. I welcome my opponent and look forward to an interesting debate. I will now begin: The towers were brought down by demolition explosives, not because a plane crashed...

On the compulsory minimum wage

wjmelements
Lexicaholic

Minimum wages are economically stupid government policies. The "compulsory minimum wage" is said to be "compulsory" to distinguish it from the "natural" minimum wage. Wage is always less than the value of the hourly produce of an employee's labour. Otherwise, the employee would not be hired. Because of the nature of wage, we can divide the effects of minimum wage into three categories: -When the value of the minimum wage is below what would otherwise have been paid -When the value of...

ararmer1919
chrumbelievable

I saw your question about Bradley Manning and I would very much like to have a debate with you. This would be strictly me vs you. The debate would be on wether or not Bradley Manning is a traitor to his county's or if he's some kind of hero of whatever you people call him. I of course will be taking the stance of him being a traitor to the nation. 5 rounds, 1st round is acceptance, final round is conclusion, you nay use any argument you see fit for your case, avoid personal insults and all the o...
