It is absolutely correct that it can be right to steal.

PackofTigers

It absolutely can be right to steal, and I will provide a reason why. Here is the definition of "steal" hereunder: to take that which is not your rightful property. Here"s how the dictionary defines it in one of its definitions where I use it similarly for my own definition: i.e., the definition, to take (another person's property) without permission or legal right and without intending to return it. The definitions vary in that I can take any context, not just the legal context, for which someo...

Should under-18s have the right to vote?

TheCommonSense
BMHTheGreat

This is a debate for whether or not under-18s should have a right to vote. I am going to limit it to an age of 14 at the least, as this is around an age where we begin to learn the most, and is the end of Year 9. Here is my argument: I believe that under-18s should have a right to vote because many new laws affect them the most, unlike older citizens. For example, the BREXIT vote. The majority of voters who voted to leave the EU in Britain were over the age of 50, giving them 31 years left i...

Are there more than two genders?

Gl1tchCrashed

Alright - Let's get this started off simply. The big question everyone seems to ask is "Are there more than two genders?". When it really boils down to it, I think it's safe to assume that this is an opinion rather than a fact. Gender can be defined as many things. Most people who do not support multi-gender principles say that Gender is Sex. If you have male appendages, you are male. If you have female appendages, you are female. Simple science, right? Weelllll... Some people have other o...

What if life was just an illusion and a punishment and death was it's liberation?

HumanityIsDead
ChaseE

All of us have a one way , biased point of view in life where we believe what we are taught is right. From the day we could understand and comprehend ideas, we were taught, "death is bad". In your opinion is that ideal of death really a bad thing? What if life was just a punishment and death was only achieved when we had learnt what we had done wrong?!...

This debate is not useless

Conceptua
That1PoliticalKid

This debate is not useless because it will allow me to vote on debates. I have completed two debates so far and this will be my third completed debate, because all my other ones have frozen due to forfeits. Since it will do something, it by definition is not useless....

Ayn Rand's opposition to Hedonism makes no sense

dylancatlow
ShabShoral

First round is for acceptance only. The following passages are to be taken as representative of Ayn Rand's position on Hedonism: 1. I am profoundly opposed to the philosophy of hedonism. Hedonism is the doctrine which holds that the good is whatever gives you pleasure and, therefore, pleasure is the standard of morality. Objectivism holds that the good must be defined by a rational standard of value, that pleasure is not a first cause, but only a consequence, that only the pleasure which...

First round is acceptance only, second round is to present your argument, third round is for rebuttal, and the fourth round is for conclusion/final argument. I will be arguing against health care being a right. Thanks and good luck!...

Being a realist is better than being an optimist

Foliya
UnderRaidedScore

Hi! Admittedly, most people think that being an optimist is better than being a pessimist. But what about realists? I am for being a realist, because sometimes it's silly to look at the world through pink glasses....
