Nuclear Energy

Ore_Ele
twsurber

This is going to be a simple Pro Nuclear Energy vs Con Nuclear Energy. No specific resolution, just the broad subject of using nuclear energy. Burden of Proof - The BoP falls equally on both debaters to support and defend their arguments while refuting their opponent's. For example, Con can focus on negative effects to the environment, safety issues, or better alternatives rendering Nuclear obsolete, but Con cannot just disagree with everything Pro puts up (and vise versa). I will go ahead...

Are video game restrictions in need of changing/updating (violence)

THEVIRUS
corey561

After all of the school shootings and gun tragedies, everyone is pointing fingers. Video games are taking a lot of heat, and I believe they are singled out (it's more than one thing that got us in this mess). Still I believe there should be a change in the rules and restrictions, age related mostly, to better this issue....

Anonymity should be allowed for social media.

iamanatheistandthisiswhy

Anonymity on social media means that one does not have to give away their identity when posting. Most of the major social media websites and apps (such as Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and even Debate.org) require the user to create a profile with a username an passowrd. That way, other users can tell who is posting what. Other applications and websites are anonymous. These incude sites like Whisper, Yik Yak, and Ask.fm. A few online newspapers and magazines also allow anonymous posting. Whil...

NSA Domestic Surveillance

Jessie_Debate14
bsh1

Resolved: The benefits of domestic surveillance by the NSA outweigh the harms. I negate this resolution for two main contentions. First, the NSA harms through an economic cost or social costs. Second, the US government doesn't play by its own rules. To start, the NSA harms the American people both economically and socially. Economically, the cost of data collection centers, such as the one in Nevada, comes out of the average man's taxes, raising them. With the taxes rising fewer people will tr...

wolf44
Steelerman6794

I would like to thank the person that accepts this debate, and good luck. "Sticks and stones may break my bones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me." This old saying may have been true in the past, but however, in this new age of technology, words are more powerful than ever. Cyber bullying is defined as the act of tormenting, threatening, harassing, humiliating, embarrassing, or otherwise targeting someone by using the Internet, interactive and digital technologies, or cell phon...

Cell phone use while driving should stay legal activity

kpeterson53
Mirza

I want to first take this opportunity to say thank you to this forum and its participants. I look forward to this debate. Currently there are 7 states (Calif., Conn., Md., N.J., N.Y., Ore. and Wash.), D.C. and the Virgin Islands that prohibit all drivers from using hand held cell phones while driving. I wish to debate this type of legislation. I believe that cell phone use while driving should be not become illegal in any form. I oppose actually doing the action, but do not see where mak...
