Capitalism is better than Socialism

IronCurx
AlternativeDavid

Round One is acceptance. Round Two is opening arguments (NO REBUTTALS) Round Three is for rebutting (NO NEW ARGUMENTS) BOP is on the side of Pro, pro needs to provide good arguments that capitalism is better than socialism, if Pro manages to provide an argument that Con is unable to refute, Pro provided better arguments. By accepting this debate you will acknowledge socialism and capitalism as: "a theory or system of social organization that advocates the vesting of the ownership and con...

Political Labels Like Democrat, Conservative, Liberal, Conservative

One way to make our government more responsive is to stop claiming a certain party affiliation. If most of the people in your district claim to be Democrat you will find the party will be much less responsive to you because they know you are "in the bag." Same way with Republicans. I prefer and encourage the idea of listening to candidates, and pressing them to explain their position. When they parrot party talking points they should be called on it and pressed for their position. The problem wi...

It is silly to filter swear words whilst allowing words like "rape", "penis" and "ejaculation".

apb4y
blackkid

The three words I listed in the title could potentially cause more offense than calling somebody a cvnt, yet they're still allowed. It's not like swear filters even work, as we can either mis-spell words or use asterisks to bypass the filter. I submit that swear filters are both ineffective and redundant, and should not be implemented on sites where discussion of sexual/bodily functions is permitted....

Round 1 - Rules and acceptance (Do not post an argument in this round) Round 2 - Opening argument Round 3 - Rebuttals / arguments Round 4 - Rebuttals / arguments Round 5 - Conclusion and/or rebuttals....

Atheism Has No Burden of Proof

Double_R
Dragonfang

BoP is on myself as Pro and Instigator to prove the resolution. My BoP requirement is to demonstrate that my case is rationally justified despite Cons rebuttals. The definition of Burden of Proof and Atheism are subject to debate. First round is for acceptance only. No new arguments in round 4. All other standard debate rules apply....

Conduct on DDO debates should be based on respect

Truth_seeker
blackkid

I will debunk the absurd notion that conduct is only judged on forfeits. Conduct should be awarded not only on forfeits, but also on which side did not use personal attacks, insults, belittling, etc. Both sides will present DDO evidence according to the guidelines on how to properly award conduct points. First round acceptance....
