This debate won't be started for at least another 2 weeks. Between then and now, I'll work on the resolution. Any advice on that part is welcome. The debate should be impossible to accept and I will be nominating judges and doing a choose winner option. Judges are yet to be determined and any suggestions by potential opponents will be considered. I'll be arguing that criminals should have the option of being caned it going to prison, should they receive a jail/prison sentence. Yes, e...

Should you be allowed to smack children?

younglaw
sereneharsh

The first round is acceptance along with your first argument. The law that allows you to smack children in school/out of school has been abolished since July 1979 for a reason, because it was wrong. As a 13 year old boy, I know how and what a child thinks, if I was smacked by a teacher yes I would be more obedient in that class but that would distract me from learning. My brain will constantly be alert of that particular teacher and be aware of everything.....but the actual lesson, I would n...

I would like to debate for gun control in America. I am a firm believer that we need to work towards protecting our citizens, and this idea should outshine all else. The first round is for acceptance only please. As I know this is a very heated debate, remember to keep debates in the debate world and do not let it carry outside of that. Also, a word to voters- please try to put your bias aside and only vote for who made a better case. Thank you....

Should social stratification exist in today's world ?

DB9KIT

Before we get into the first debate round, my opponent is supposed to acknowledge that.. 1) ad hominem abusive (attacking persons rather than points) is prohibited here. 2) try to avoid a logical fallacy commonly known as "appeal to pity," as it doesn't make our debate logical enough. ( however, it's okay to appeal to emotions occasionally) 3) scientific evidence, such as research, studies, experiments, so on and so forth, is not necessary. (it takes too much time to do meta-analysis. We can...
