Should Harriet Tubman replace Andrew Jackson on the 20$ bill?

Janemarie25
CommunistDog

There is absolutely no reason to replace Andrew Jackson with Harriet Tubman on the twenty dollar bill. Andrew Jackson has been on the twenty dollar bill since 1928, so why change it now? Jackson was the first president to be elected by popular sentiment, and he did so three times! He was also a war hero as a major general in the War of 1812. He was also the first president who was previously a prisoner of war. Jackson wasn't born into wealth either, he worked his way up from nothing. The argumen...

Here I define capitalism as a system of economic organization with two central principles: 1) Private ownership of property and the means of production (fields, factories, etc).2) The accumulation of skill sets and financial capital (or money) where one dollar equals one vote in the marketplace and one unit of access to resources.Given this definition and considering the current state o...

Social Darwinism

iqpiblog

Debate perimeters: This debate is on the subject of social Darwinism, the economic idea and philosophy that people act individually and compete within the market for resources and in doing so create wealth. Those who create the most wealth have done so by their own free will and those who have created the least have also done so by their own free will. This debate will be argued using fact and reason, no emotional opinions or subjectively heavy thoughts are used in the debate. To my o...

Huge Lego Buildings ( with brick sized Legos)

redjayphinex
Gatto_Gateaau

Yes, lego buildings are possible to make if the legos are the size of bricks. If you think about it when you make buildings with these types of legos you dont need to demolish buildings, even if you do demolish the building you are able to use the same pieces again to make a new house. This virtually illiminates the problem...
