Should there be laws placed over online games; what they can and cannot do?

DummyLord

I think that there should be laws on online gaming. I know there basically already is a system in place for most games, but the fact that there is still not something like an online police system is worrying. I believe putting in such system would help the games and help promote internet safety....

BonoboMoon
Circle_Craft

There is more scientific evidence supporting that the earth is flat than there is evidence supporting it is a ball. We will be debating which is more likely. Given the information which has been collected, is it more like that; The earth is flat? The earth is a ball? I will be arguing for flat earth....

Should Hillary Clinton be arrested for her secret e-mails?

Niall_McGee27
Mikal

According to the us code any government officials with classified information that is leaked is a felony. This can not be allowed because just because she is a political offical, doesn't mean the law is under her or she has no consequences for her actions. If General Petreus got punished she should get punished....

The Universe is deterministic

condeelmaster
spacetime

I really want to discuss about this because I'm not sure of my opinion. I think that the universe must be deterministic because of its excellent design and for the limits that existence itself has. However, if this is true, it means that we will never be free, which is really upsetting hahaha. To clarify some points: * It would be interesting to focus on the metaphysical implicancies of this issue and the relation with free will, religions, time-space composition and future prediction....

The Logistics and practicality of Communism.

Saberen
ajthenoob

I would like to debate and hopefully convince skeptics of communism to rethink their position on this subject. I would like Con to start by pointing out their concerns about communism and structure an argument. PLEASE READ: I have done many of these kind of debates before and most arguments have been complete straw-mans. You can argue against the marxist-leninist method of achieving communism if you like. Communism: A stateless, classless, moneyless society where the means of produc...
