Leaders are made in schools

Dania_Hasan
vi_spex

It can be said that leaders are born and not made in schools. Some important traits are just innate and cannot be tried no matter how hard you try. Leadership traits can be refined but if they are not there at all they cannot be made from scratch when nothing else is there. Leadership is not something that you can practice like a sport....

Gun Control

Magma_Crafter
AbandonedSpring

I believe gun control should not be a thing because there are numerous ways to get guns. 1. Make it yourself 2. Buy it Illegally 3. Become a police officer There's probably even more. So if a guy decided that he wanted to have a gun for recreational purposes he would go through the background check after he got a gun license. Like all licenses it needs to be renewed. Now on the off chance he became angry or started having criminal thoughts he might rely on his already registered and purchased...

It is ok for a man to hit a woman.

QuiverTheGamer

When a girl hits a guy, everyone thinks that the guy did something bad. But when a guy hits a girl, everyone thinks that the guy is a "horrible, mysogynistic, sexist jerk." Say Alice hits Bob, then Bob hits Alice back. Everyone will think that Bob is evil. But what if Bob is defending himself? What if Bob is trying to save his own life? If Alice hit Bob repeatedly, but Bob followed society's rule of "A man should never h...

Should the death penalty be illegal?

EliasL
savannah1006

I believe that the death penalty should be illegal in ALL states (and the world for that matter) due to the fact that there is no crime that should be punishable by death. For example, if there is a murder (i.e. Jodi Arias), and the defendant is found guilty, the government has no right to kill him/her due to the fact that this too is murder....

Wylted 100th Debate: The United States should implement caning as a punishment for criminals.

Wylted
thett3

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...

Prostitution should be illegal.

Nymphomaniac
Mister_Man

This debate is about prostitution. I believe prostitution should be legal, but I've chosen to argue a side I don't believe in, to keep things interesting. This should be fun! There are three rounds. The first is for acceptance. The second is for arguments. The third is for rebuttals. I have made the voting open to members with a minimum Elo of 2500. I also ask voters explain their decision. That should keep randoms from voting and ensure a fair assessment....

Chinese people who eat dogs have the right to do so

smithy1
mightbenihilism

In the United States, dogs are viewed as family and have a special role in many lives. Most people would find the idea of consuming a dog (as one would eat cow or chicken) repugnant. In certain parts of China, people buy dogs to eat (let me be clear that I am not generalizing this act to all Chinese people, only a small minority eat dogs and it is frowned upon for the most part). My argument is that they have the right to do so. It is prima facie morally permissible to eat dogs. Obviously, if a...
