Our Progress Trap: Should we stop engaging in industry and encourage population control?

Jadeydid
Preston

In the documentary entitled Surviving Progress, great minds come together to assess the developed world's situation in relation to our greatest resource, the earth. I am arguing that the way out of a progress trap is to stop developing technology and industry, which have grown to such a scale as to classify as modern addictions. In many great civilizations in the past, the progress trap has resulted in a tumultuous decline. Consider the issues of sustainability, the growth of modern society, pop...

Our society is at the worst its ever been.

sahaam
KhalifV

I believe that our society is at the worst it has ever been as the generations go on and on. Society has made girls/women think that there meant to be skinny and have large breasts and if you don't then your not a real woman or girl. Society has made boys/men think that there meant to have abs and be really fit in order to be hot. in our society everyone is supposed to have the same clothes and technology to fit in. Everyone's has to go by the latest trends. I'm not saying that everyone's judg...

Does rape justify having an abortion?

ark97pink
TruthHurts

Please keep the first round solely for acceptance. I have taken the stance that being a victim of rape does not justify having an abortion. I am writing an opinion paper on this topic for a entrance exam for school and I am interested in learning the other side to this argument. I am sure this debate will greatly benefit my paper and I appreciate your time....

Flirting is dangerous

Truth_seeker
Free_Th1nker

Flirting is dangerous and should not be practiced among singles for various reasons. The only exceptions are when your already in a relationship. Flirting can tempt people to have sex, flirting also fails to build an emotional connection and focuses on flattery, physical beauty, sexuality, false compliments, spark feelings of infatuation, the list goes on. Flirting also makes you seem not genuine. I mean, i find myself flirting with girls and behind their backs, i brag about it and talk abou...
