George Zimmerman acted in self defense against Trayvon Martin.

I'm hoping to find an opponent who will discuss this topic without bias. This topic is clouded with bias and emotions from both sides because of bad media coverage and sensitive issues. I'm looking for someone who will defend his views with reasonable evidence instead of fallacies and opinions. I'm not concerned about heavy amounts of formality. I want a discussion that gets to the point and isn't scared to get a little interesting, so long as both sides are reasonable and calm. First off...

The "I was just following orders" defense should not shield soldiers from criminal culpability.

NOTE: I set the debate so that it can only be accepted by a member ranked as good as me or better. If you are interested in this debate but cannot accept, let me know.The Nuremberg trials, held by the Allies after World War II, rejected the "I was just following orders" defense to charges of military atrocity and human rights violations. It was a landmark decision in international law...

Should abortion be made illegal for women who are NOT rape victims? I will take the pro life position, and I assume you will take the pro choice position. This first round will be just acceptance. You cannot use religion to justify your viewpoints...

The first round is acceptance. the second round is opening the third is details and the last is conclusion. I will not tolerate any disregard for Homosexuals feeling or any other sort of abuse towards homosexuality. This argument is only to put across opinions that will not be taken offensively.

NSA Surveillance

Danielle

I dislike instigating debates from the Con position, but I wasn't entirely sure how to frame the resolution. My opponent, should he accept, has agreed to debate this issue from either side. I will be standing in opposition to the extent of NSA Surveillance. A brief overview: The NSA has the capability to collect massive amounts of data on traffic over switched phone networks and the internet. Recently they gained the ability to capture and store data en masse, and retain...

Should the United States join the Commonwealth of Nations and have the Queen as head of state?

EmilyMolloy
Tophatdoc

It's time for the United States to join the Commonwealth. Membership in the Commonwealth would facilitate the kind of globalization that is in the American national interest, and it would serve as a hedge against the emergence of a less benign international order based on civilizational power politics. In return, United States membership would offer the Commonwealth a much-needed shot in the arm in terms of resources and ideas that could transform it from a persistent underachiever into a leadin...
