UtherPenguin

DEBATE IMPOSSIBLE TO ACCEPT, READ THE RULES BELOW AND THEN PM OR COMMENT ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS DEBATE. This is a devil's advocate debate, since I am of Socialistic leanings I have decided to play devil's advocate and debate on the side of Con, I expect Pro to do the same meaning that if they are of Capitalist or Conservative leanings then they shall debate on the side of Pro. The variant of Socialism that my opponent debates for is up to them as long as it does not touch on Comm...

I have not debated on this website for a long time. Glad to be back! Moving on, this is the debate of the topic: "The US Penny Should be Taken Out of Service." The first round is simply for acceptance. Rules: 1) No trolling/semantics. 2) No offensive content/swearing 3) Keep arguments within the spirit of debate/no personal attacks.

I think children over the age of 10 are responsible enough, to have a facebook account. They are at that age where they can be really responsible.Although, I am not totally for it because children are children and they can get a bit irresponsible. I guess it just matters on the child....

Is the world changing for the better (pro for better con for not)

coolkid1231
Kylar

No, the world is not changing for the better. Threat of nuclear destruction, disease, political and religious conflicts, rising terrorist organizations, faltering birthrates in 1st world countries, failing economies, failing American educational system, voter apathy, running out of resources, "climate change", etc . As much as we'd might like to believe the world is changing for the better; the harsh reality is that the world is becoming overpopulated, fossil fuels are running low and un...

The US is ranked on 92th place amongst developing countries in terms of economic inequality. We are even valued to have one of the highest Gini-coefficient in the world. It...
