Removal of Putin from power is inevitable

grotto77

Russia under Putin's regime provoked a conflict in Ukraine, when Ukrainian citizens overthrown pro-Kremlin puppet government. Pretty much like in 2008 in Georgia, Russia supported pro-Russian rebels by contributing arms and manpower. They're trying to destabilize the region so Russian army can invade to "protect the Russian speakers" while in fact they will subdue the country militarily. Current Russia is a security threat to Europe and Euro-American assets of Western Economy. Putin must be stop...

No such thing as good an evil but all is controlled by perception of temporal cause and effect

Cgwam
Ajabi

I'd like to debate the essence of good and evil and it's potential non-existence as an independent entity. I argue that good is not a constant and can not exist as a solo entity. I like to debate with a con who can prove me wrong that good is indeed it's on constant and can stand as an independent factor . What is good can only be determined by what is bad and likewise what's bad can only be determined by what is good. Hence when we say what is good we in essence can say what is not bad( wh...

Progressive Taxation is Unconstitutional

RobMBroughton
Palmo10

A progressive taxation system is unconstitutional because it violates the General Welfare clause of the Constitution. The underlying problem with a progressive tax system is that, when combined with a representative governmental construct, it fosters and perpetuates a culture of non-accountability.

The police are purchasing military equipment for use against the citizens of their community.

Doogiel18

The police have an obligation to protect the community but how far? When the police receive military equipment for use against the citizens of the community, they are betraying the trust and disrupting the harmony of their citizens. The civil liberties of every citizen can be taken away without any intervention due to the high capabilities of the militarized police. The police have built a system so as if any or every citizen wishes to express any new ideas or ideals he/she or they will be easil...
