Hacktivism does more good than harm

awesomeness
Zulske

RESOLVED: Computer hacktivism does more good than harm. Before I present our main arguments I'd like to provide a proper framework for today's debate. DEFINITION: Hacktivism First, it's crucial that I will define the most important term in today's topic, "hacktivism." Hacktivism is a combination of the words "hack" and "activism," however, it is extremely important to remember that the word "hacktivism" is different in both meaning and spirit than the word "hack/hacking." Voters, please do...

imabench

I believe that If North Korea were to Invade South Korea, then they would eventually lose the war against South Korea with US support. Con must argue how the North Koreans would guarantee to win the war WITHOUT any foreign help (like from China or Russia) 5 rounds, 6000 character limit Con may use the first round for acceptance or they can post their arguments....

Will the Buffett Tax System be beneficial for the economy?

Sam4luck
Friedman

I believe that the Buffett Tax System will prove beneficial for the US and world economy because it will lead to a progressive system that will move towards a more balanced and shared economical existence. While many millionaires have argued against this and that according to the estimates from the Tax Policy Center, the average federal tax rates paid by people with incomes over 1million is about 29% while that of people with income between $50,000 to $75,000 is only about 15%, this policy will...

Amanda Knox and Raffaele Sollecito are innocent of the murder of Meredith Kercher

randolph7

First, let me start out by saying that the murder of Meredith Kercher is truly appalling. My heart goes out to her friends and family. In the spirit of justice for Meredith, I think we would all agree that ensuring that the appropriate parties are held to account for what he/she/they have done. While none of us truly know what happened that night barring being a physical witness or somehow omniscient, I believe that the evidence presented by the prosecutor is faulty and the atmo...

Can Sex Offenders Be Hot?

jar2187
socialpinko

I was reading a Houston Press article entitled “10 Hottest Women on the Texas Sex Offenders list”. I was not impressed. But by far, they each were much better looking than most of the more burly women that they love to parade on the news. It is as if the news love to exploit our general notions of “attractiveness” by associating them with horribly despicable crimes. It is as if the news is trying to tell us, or at least subliminally persuade us, to think that the una...

Wikileaks

Xenith967
Scyrone

Wikileaks should be classified as a terrorist organization bent on the downfall of the United States of America. This will be the Pf debate style. Contention- Wikileaks should be shut down because it is a terrorist organization with only one goal in mind and that is to destroy the United States of America.The latest breed of anarchist is not a protester who takes to the streets, Molotov cocktail in hand. His weapon of choice is the laptop and his battleground the Internet, which he uses to s...
