American democracy is a failure.

learnyang1812
Mike_10-4

As Abraham Lincoln explains in the Gettysburg Address, democracy is intended to be a "government of the people, by the people, for the people," however, in 2015 we find that modern democracy no longer achieves those goals and has failed the people it was intended to save.

UtherPenguin
Jedi4

It has come to my attention that Jedi4 has claimed to be "A master at Dank memes." Unfortunately, there can be room for only 1 Dank meme master. And I intend to defend my non-existent title.

Conclusion (More memes allowed) No Semantics, only memes. Terms: Danker: Of higher quality. memes: A life force that makes ....

Resolved: When in conflict, the right to Individual Privacy is more important than National Security

I"d like to open up with a quote from Scott McNealy, who, quite elegantly, summed up the entire Negative philosophy in six words. *Clear Throat* "Privacy is dead, get over it." (http://moreintelligentlife.com/blog/julia-belluz/privacy-dead%E2%80%94get-over-it) I know, shocking right? But Privacy wasn"t taken away from us by the Government or anything, as Charles Nevin says, "This is an age which happily invades its own privacy" (http://moreintelligentlife.com/blog/julia-belluz/privacy-dead%E2%8...

Massive0
FaustianJustice

This debate is primarily based on the role social media has played in leading to a decrease in moral and ethical standards.My argument is that social media has played a part in decadence but it is not necessarily the main factor.My opponent,whoever chooses to accept this debate, will have to prove that social media has played a bigger role than all other factors.My equally demanding burden will be to prove that social media has played a bigger role than all the other factors. Allow me to provi...
