Pro Communism-(from Latin communis " common, universal)[1][2] is a socioeconomic system structured upon common ownership of the means of production and characterized by the absence of social classes, money,[3][4] and the state; as well as a social, political and economic ideology and movement that aims to establish this social order. I argue that this system is better for humanity than the capitalist system. By 'better' I mean: More sustainable Happier population Healthier population B...

A.I. of sufficient intelligence deserves Personhood

First round is acceptance. Basis & Definitions: We will presume that the entity's nature itself does not matter. The question is essentially whether a being that functions as a human would fully entitled to emotions, mental capabilities, and intelligence should be considered a "Person". The standard of machinery still is present so the object still requires initial input unlike biological systems but beyond that input can assess within it's parameters which is assumed to be equivalent to a hu...

Math Debate #1

RevL8ion
stylishBOY

The title's pretty self-explanatory. Because I'm a whole lot better at mathematics than debating, and there's really nothing math-related here, I'd like to start perhaps the first math debate in all of DDO. Here are the rules.Oh wait, first, I'd like to tell you to do something: Hold your tongue with your fingers and say "I like to math debate." If you know what I mean...anyway:The first round is always acceptance only...

According to CDC,gov, "In 2012, a total of 305,388 babies were born to women aged 15"19 years [old]"" Due to the lack of sexual education, 65% of LGBTQ students have reported being harassed about sexual marks and even their sexua...

Joseph Stalin has made a bigger impact on society as a whole than Oprah

amcneil

In College, We were assigned to debate whether or not a public figure has made more of an impact on society than another public figure. I was assigned the pro side of Joseph Stalin making more of an impact on society as a whole than Oprah. I went up against an annoying girl who had no idea what she was talking about other than that Oprah was the coolest African American woman and gave away cars. Unfortunately, this wasn't a very advanced class in my opinion and I ended up losing the debate, as t...

Education changes

moeez_malik
MonetaryOffset

The Education of America should change up. The reason I say this is because some courses in High school. Are pointless because they don't help us at all in the future such as Geometry, chemistry, statistics, Earth Science, Algebra, and more. We should not be required to take these type of classes unless we want to be a engineer, or a scientist. We should be taking classes we need to becomes whatever that is we want to be....
