Marxism is invariably superior to Capitalism

LordDeclan
RonPaulConservative

I have recently come to the firm conclusion, after reading several texts by Marx and Engels, that, despite the stigma surrounding communism in much of the West, it, at least in the Marxist form, is far superior to capitalism. Whilst I do not advocate any of the atrocities committed in, for example, the Soviet Union in the name of this cause, I feel that this is a perversion of the true message of Marxism, and that the pure form is an ideology that we should readily adopt. I personally can see n...

The First Amendment Defense Act

JalenNephiWebb
colester112

The First Amendment Defense Act has been proposed by the Trump administration, and it states, in general, that a business cannot be punished by the government for refusing service to an LGBT+ consumer. This is okay. It is okay because capitalism is the most unbiased system in the world. If a company chooses to engage in a discriminatory act, other companies will decide not to do that, and will effectively steal the consumer basis from the discriminating producer. That discriminating produ...

Free Trade

Capitalistslave
colester112

I am taking the position against free trade. Burden of proof is shared equally. Pro may begin their argument in round 1 if they wish, but I ask that they waive round 4 since I am not using round 1 for debate, in order to keep the rounds used for debate equal. In round 4, if you use round 1 for debate, you should say something like "I am waiving this round as agreed upon". Otherwise, you could use round 1 for acceptance, agreement of definitions, and a brief overview of your position, but n...

Price Gouging Following Natural Disaster ought to be permitted by law

tylergraham95
Blade-of-Truth

I would like to argue that price gouging following natural disasters can be a good thing, and that it ought to be permitted by law.Definitions"Price Gouging Following Natural Distaster" (PGFND): the practice of marking up the price of a good rapidly (over 50% increase in price roughly) in response to sudden increase of scarcity as a result of a natural disaster (flood, tornado, typhoon, godzilla attack, etc.)"Oug...

America Cannot Be Made Great Again Unless It Nationalizes Housing

Sidetrack
RonPaulConservative

At the time of writing of the this debate argument, America is 20 Trillion in debt to foreigners. That means you and everyone in your family, including your children, owes $60,000 dollars to the rest of the world. And you thought you were paying for things when you left the store. This debt occurs when America imports more than it exports. Many of these imports will end up in the landfill in a few years. What are the foreigners trading them for? They are traded for American land, American r...

Should the United States increase military funding/spending?

Bribri10114
RonPaulConservative

Hello and thank you to whomever accepts this debate. I would first like to set the round format: R1: Acceptance and Pro arguments R2: Neg Rebuttal and Pro rebuttal R3: More Rebuttal/Rebuild R4: Appeal to judges and final words This is going to be a defensive debate meaning that I will take the side of the Con and will be attacking the Pro's arguments. Let's remember the Ad Hominem logical fallacy: An argument directed at a person and not the position they are maintaining is not a va...

The rich should be taxed more than the poor.

Jawz366
Anon1984

People shouldn't be taxed because they have more money. If someone has earned their money, they shouldn't have to pay more than everyone else just because they are more successful, that is just wrong....
