Do you think that society's views change the way we dress?

LindaRose97
gannon260

For my Extended Project (A-Level) I am trying to research whether people feel pressurised by society or the media and maybe other factors to dress in a particular way. The idea of this is that I want to compare how people dress today (in the 21st century) to how people would have dressed and what would have been acceptable in say Regency England (15th to the 17th century). I personally think that people (especially women it seems so far from my research) do feel pressurised by the media and by s...

Wage labor is a form of slavery that helps to maintain and perpetuate classism

mentalist
Danielle

I assert that wage labor, especially when involving menial positions, is merely slavery by another name. Wage labor serves to foster class consciousness in a society and prejudice in the form of classism. Wage labor gives credence to the system of capitalism which places more value on materials than humanity. Wage labor also undermines the principles of self determination and cajoles masses into spending a large portion of their lives working to support the dreams of others rather than following...

Should the nazi data collected in the holocaust be used?

TheSpoonyRealist

Millions of people died in the name of what they called science yet these expiriments were unlawful, unethical and unreasonable. Because these expiriments weren't based on scientific hypothesis and theories formed over time most people call them biased basically because they were racially motivated. I strongly agree, Jewishvirtuallibrary.org explained "Nazi Concentration Camp science is often branded as bad science. First, it is doubtful that physiological responses of the tortured and maimed vi...

Capital Punishment

Complicated-Character
debater409

I would like to begin by saying the obvious, that not every crime is worthy of the death penalty, and that not all killers deserve it either. But if someone is perfectly aware of the atrocities they are committing, can it even be questioned that they deserve to die? In my opinion: no. But logically, this should be treated as case by case. For an example of a case where capital punishment shouldn"t be considered as a form of punishment, I bring up a book I read in middle school, titled Monster....

The Washington Redskins should change their team name

UchihaMadara
kbub

Thanks to Kbub for agreeing to debate this topic with me! Standard DDO rules apply: first round for acceptance, no new arguments in the final round, no semantics, no trolling, etc. A couple of important notes to make on the resolution... -- "Should" implies some sort of obligation, legal, practical, or ethical (or all) -- BOP in this debate is shared; Pro must show that there is some sort of obligation for the Redskins to change their name, and Con must show that there is not. For anyon...
