Prostitution should be legalized

philosophicalnutcase
dloos121

There is no crime without a victim. That's the universal moral rule. And in the United States, our laws are made to comply with indisputable morality- not religious/cultural morality (if the Amish made law, we'd have quite a different dress code) not subjective morality (vegans would have banned meat). Prostitution, however, is not inherently wrong except religiously, culturally, or individually. If one is forced or coerced into it, of course it is a heinous crime but that's not sex work- that's...

I wish to argue in the affirmative that the U.S. should construct a wall on the Southern Border. I can leave Round 1 for acceptance, and the next three for arguments. I'm new to this site so please excuse any technical errors - I'm 100% willing to negotiate any changes to the parameters. ...

The economics system is not biased against poor people.

According to the Brookings Institute the three things poor teens need to succeed in life are number one get job number two get through high school and finally don't marry too early. Once people follow these simple rules they have only a 2% chance of being poor and a 25% chance of not making over 55,000 dollars.

Should Hawaii be independent?

YellowPro55
asta

August 21, 1959 Hawaii was illegally overthrown and was forced into becoming the part of the 50th state of the United States. Hawaii had its own culture and society that was all fine. Until American business men thought of annexing Hawaii in 1854 during their expansion fever seeing Hawaii as a good trade area for themselves and I see as America's annex of Hawaii is just wrong and could have changed many events in history. For an example Japan would have not attacked Hawaii if the US naval ships...

Girls Cannot be Denied Access to The Boy Scouts of America

32doni32nido32

For my opening statement and argument, I would like to start by introducing myself, stating some of the history of the Boy Scouts of America (BSA), and by giving my first argument. My name is Trevor Drayton, I have been a lifelong scout. At the age of 16, I completed the rank of Eagle Scout and entered college through the CollegeNOW program. The BSA was founded by Robert S. S. Baden-Powell in 1910 for youth boys as a way to strengthen their moral standards and prepare them for joining the...

Video Games Are Bad For Children

6_16Fun
The_Annoying_Debater

I strongly believe that video games are not bad for children. Video games teach children problem solving and logic, perseverance, accuracy, memory, concentration, and quick thinking. People will argue that video games are addicting and are a waste of time, but with the right time restriction and monitoring, video games are good for children....

Are A.I racist?

Masterful

This debate involves instances where an A.I has used racial ethnic slurs to describe black people as shown in this link. https://www.wnycstudios.org/story/deep-problem-deep-learning/ This link shows an A.I calling a black woman a gorilla and a concentration camp a "Jungle GYM" Considering how much racism a single A.I can show, isn't it a good idea to stop developing these Neo-Nazi robots? A.I was developed by white people for white people and now is the time to put an end to this white pr...

Islam

thetruthwillout
dgitelman

As a musim I would like to know why people are so against Islam ? I would also like to share what Islam is for me, and that is largely different from what the media portrays. Islam is a religion of love. God is Love. There is only One God, he has no sons, no daughters, no children at all. He was not begotten by anyone nor does He beget. What's so strange and evil about believing in One God ??? God sent down all the prophets. We accept Jesus, as a prophet, and admire him. We accept Moses, Abrah...
