There Should Be a Fat Tax Introduced

TheAdamb99
FreedomBeforeEquality

We often hear calls for a junk food tax or "fat tax" when there"s discussion of Australia"s growing obesity problem. The idea behind such a tax is that it would enable governments to subsidise healthy foods so that they"re more affordable, and make unhealthy foods comparatively expensive so people buy less of them. But would they really? Is cost really the most powerful determinant of what food products people buy? Let"s consider the likely effects of a junk food tax. Researchers claim tha...

Should recreational Marijuana be legalized by the United States government?

I think that Marijuana should not be legalized for recreational purposes due to the health effects caused from smoking the drug. There have been many scientific studies that prove that Marijuana affects, for example, the learning & growing development of teenagers. Marijuana has been proven by scientists to destroy brain cells of Marijuana users. Let the debate continue :)...

I think the right to bear arms is a gift, because us as people should have the right of self defense, I am one of those people that own loaded firearms in my own household, I keep these firearms as an act of defense. I disagree that the right to bear arms is a bad idea...

Stem cell research on all types of stem cells should be completely legal

Maddie98
Royal-Sovereign

The first round will be to establish acceptance, our position, and any basic definitions. Also, in the very last part of Round 3, rebuttals may be made, but the last person cannot provide new points. I will be Pro for this argument and my opponent will be Con. Stem cell research is the study of stem cells to provide us with medical information about early human development and stem cell differentiation. Stem cell research also has the potential to cure numerous different incurable diseases, b...

There are two kinds of euthanasia, Active euthanasia and passive euthanasia. Active euthanasia is when a person does something to help you die. Passive euthanasia is when a person doesn"t do something to help you die; they stop helping to keep you alive. I think both kinds should be legal in all states. Some people have to die in pain. Why do they have to feel the pain in such a long time, if they could die peacefully? A lot of teenagers commit suicide. I DON"T think they should get help t...

Personally, I find this trend to be alarming, and view the decision to not vaccinate a child to be morally reprehensible. I would therefore like to debate this issue, to air my feelings on the subject.There is a 48 hours response time on this debate, so please bear that in mind prior to accepting.Full Topic
