Capitalism vs. Socialism

bballcrook21
Idrees

Firstly, good luck to whomever may accept this challenge. There is a clear distinction in these systems, as neither can exist without a certain type of government. Socialism requires a centralized, looming federal government that restricts liberty for the good of the nation. Capitalism, on the other hand, requires a decentralized, hands off federal government that leaves most matters to local governments, as local governments can address issues with more precision. Socialism, on one hand,...

The Confederate Flag.

Canatheist

The Confederate flag IS racist. In no way does it show that people fight for this country, it is a symbol of mistakes. It is the exact same situation as when Hitler took the Swastika and turned it into a racist flag. It only takes a slip up to make an innocent symbol into a racist symbol. If anyone honestly defends this flag, you're ruining the point of why this country came to be- human freedom. We are free to create a government to make everyone happy. This country is supposed to give religiou...

The United States should convert to the Metric system

qtstepp

The United States should NOT convert to the metric system because in order to convert, we would have to change every single road sign, every single container, every single map, every single GPS system, and much much more. Millions upon millions of dollars spent just to make America the same as everyone else. But the American Standard System is just part of what makes America unique. Our money needs to go to more important things, like schools and creating more jobs. Now, you may argue that the c...

The Concept of Money Does More Harm than Good.

TheLegitObesePanda
Cotton_Candy

The concept of money has been around since the dawn of time. However, as many people know, money is often the cause of greed and corruption. I find that the world would be a much better place without money. I've put a lot of thought into this, and I have to admit, I have a feeling that having such a complex topic for my first debate will come back and bite me in the neck. Leave a comment or message me if you'd like to take up this challenge. Bear in mind, despite my "rookie" status on this...

That should minecraft servers be systematized like a society?

actionguy777

Ladies and gentleman,as we know,the game Minecraft enable players to build their own constructions out of textured cubes in a 3-Dimensional procedurally generated world. Other activities in the game include exploration, resource gathering, crafting, and combat.These things I mentioned above,are the basics of Minecraft. In the multiplayer servers,every player in-game shares the same world.Unlike the singleplayer world,the players need to suffer their consequences playing with others.For example,...

Progressive Taxation

NGEpical
ethancentric

Progressive taxation should be allowed for these reasons: First off, the rich have it better off, we can look at them like a well developed, rich in infrastructure society, like the U.S. Most of the world depends on the U.S for exports because the U.S is so well established. This is how we should view this debate, the poor depend on the better-off, better-established rich class to survive and prosper, therefore we should tax the rich more than the other classes (progressive tax)...
