The Way To Global Understanding Is To Provide Avenues For Education Of Students Abroad

Debating4Life00

Good Morning, ladies and Gentlemen. I am Debating4Life00, and I stand firmly against the motion. Today, over the course of the three rounds, i would explain and prove to you why foreign education is not the way to promote or achieve global understanding. But what is global understanding? Let us take a hypothetical example here. Say that there is a Syrian refugee crisis happening right now. Here, half-way across the globe, people are revolting and suggesting ideas to stop this crisis....

All drugs should be Legalized

Badplum25
kennykenkenken

Alright, in this debate whoever chooses to combat my belief will need to believe that not all drugs should be legalized and Id prefer someone who strongly thinks that the current drug policy's are fair. No personal attacks are allowed and you can only attack my position in this debate. For example you cannot call me a "drug addict" since this is not an attack on my stance in the argument. This is my first debate on the website so...hopefully I do well. I've set the maximum argument size to 6000....

Dose the word sorry even make a difference

Dose the word sorry even make a difference? To me no When a child of any age gets in trouble at school there automatic reply is sorry, the thing is they are not sorry for what they have done or they most likely would have not done it in the first place and it is said without meaning. They are sorry that they got in trouble. Have you ever got into a fight with your brothers or sisters, whats the end result, most likely your parents force you to say sorry and when you finally cough up that 5 lett...

Should kids (12 and under) have a cell phone?

TheBlackDragon04
Miriam14

Kids should not have a cell phone, because they are traveling into a era that they do not fully understand. They will be immature with it, and not actually use it for any emergencies. Think about it for a second. A maniac/raper is chasing you with a knife. While you are running for your life, do you really have time to call 911. No! Because you are trying to get out of there! Let me give you another situation. You just got into a severe car accident, would you call 911 or home to get help? Well,...

Should we teach the civil war from a union perspective AS WELL as a Confederate one?

I believe confederate history to be necessary in understanding our cultural differences in society todey. The simple fact is that I'm the south their is outrage over the army of northern Virginia battle flag being taken down by confederate sympathizers who are deemed "racist" by modern society who simply misunderstand their point of view. Thus the primary way to end this would be to gain understand to the youth through education...

Jails and prisons need to pay more attention to cases of rape and assault.

daxkeith
Golfer15

In the prisons and jails of today's world, money runs everything and can get you whatever you want. There have been many stories told that there was a guard that turned his/her back to rape or assault because the rapist/ assaulter paid off the guard. There are also many cases where the guard says he just doesn't care or for the inmate to stand up and fight (no matter how much smaller the inmate may be) and that is completely counterproductive to the system. Inmates are put in jail because they c...
