Beloved classic children's books being made into hollywood movies

Disclaimer: This is my first debate (on this website). I did a formal debate once at school, so I am aware that there are certain rules/etiquette, but otherwise I'm pretty clueless about how to go about this or how best to use this website. Anyway here goes... It saddens me when I hear that yet another famous classic children's book is being made into yet another hollywood blockbuster movie. It is a well-known and very evident fact that movies fall short (sometimes hard on their faces) wh...

Same-Sex Equality

Marriage isn't a privilege, it is a human right. Many protesters of gay couples say that 'God states in the bible that only man and woman should be together'. There's no proof God is real. And even if he was, there is NOTHING wrong with two people of the same gender being together. So, forget about your religion for a second and look at the real facts. Same-Sex couples are no different than hetero couples other than the fact they cannot reproduce with each other. Gay couples deser...

In the United States, wealth inequality is detrimental to democratic ideals.

Shelby.Martin

C1- Wealth inequality is detrimental to Equality. There are many areas in which the wealthy have more opportunities, one example being education. Most people will agree that private school offers a better education than public school. However, not everyone can afford to spend $9,500 per year (the national average of private school education is $9,518 according to privateschoolreviews.com) on that advanced education, and that"s only for one child. There"s no way a single mom with two children w...

Abortion. Yes or No?

alysonreid

Many religious families teach their children to not believe in abortion. Often, people believe that aborting a baby, kills it. But what about the children who are already born? The kids who were abandoned and left homeless because their mother couldn't take care of the child? What if they died just because they were forced to be born when the mother wasn't healthy enough? With protesters constantly trying to close abortion clinics, scenarios such as the ones I just listed are happening more and...

Veganism

We have all been raised in a society that has convinced us that wrong is right. From childhood, we have actually been taught that animals are something to use, to be made into a sandwich, or a bag or a jacket. That society also once said slavery is okay. All good people follow the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Animals qualify as others. They feel fear, pain and grief, just like people. In terms of suffering there is no difference between killing a cow and kil...

Implementing communism will negatively impact society

Excutient
harrytruman

Communism as a system (as described in the communist manifesto) would be a Utopian way of living for everyone, we all work for what we need, there is little to no greediness(1), society advances more than we see today (money is needed for research). Also, if every healthy adult is employed there is no need for one to work as much as they do in today's capitalist system. There are many other benefits. If you are to argue a point, please explain it. (1) - https://www.reference.com/worl...

Should have History Month's for Every Race? (Or get rid of all of them)

Mdnye64
alysonreid

So, you think we should have History Month's for every race? Well, I think we shouldn't have 'em at all for any race. They are pointless and not needed. You should decide when you want to learn about history about any group. And if we continue to only celebrate one race it won't give the other hard working groups credit and will continue to put black people in the spotlight. After all "Black People can't be racist". And by the way, if you think whites did nothing to contribute to the human...
