Free Market Capitalism Inevitably Leads to Corruption

voxprojectus
Jevinigh

First Round Will be opening statements without rebuttal. All following rounds may be free-form. My opening statement: It seems to be inevitably the case that the further a given municipal, provincial, or national government works to de-regulate and "get government out of the way" of the private sector, the end result seems to be Private institutions/businesses leveraging their freedom for greater political power, often legally or illegally supplying money to lawmakers along the way. The ca...

Money is the root of all evil.

KALADIN
sanchitsharma

This will be my first debate. The topic is that of the nature of money. Money is routinely and passively cited as the root of all evil. I shall attempt to shed light on this ridiculous, fallacious notion. Anyone willing to do the opposite is welcomed....

Welfare Should Be Dissolved or Heavily Regulated

InGodwetrust33
Siladheil

I know that I am not the only one who feels this way. To be honest there are probably more people who have the same opinions, but they may be hesitant to voice them for fear of ridicule from those who do wrong and feel they are right. My response to that is to consider the source. Who but someone so ignorant, selfish, and lazy would make those kinds of comments? Let's not get into their choice of rhetoric, which for some is just a representation of no education, no common sense, or morality. Th...

It is good for the environment because it doesn't release extra greenhouse gas into the atmosphere and damage it. Also, it repays what you payed for it overtime because you don't have to keep going and buying oil and coal....

Russia should not be sanctioned!

benko12345678
Geographia

The arguments in this debate will be based on the negative impact of these sanctions against EU countries (such as Slovenia). In an extreme case, the GDP of Slovenia would decrease by 1,3% resulting in a 1,6 billion euro loss, a worse case would be presented in Denmark, which is Russia's number 1 european trading partner, while Slovenia is in second place. Even Germany opposes this act. If an escalation of Europe's stand-off with Moscow over Ukraine results in economic sanctions, more than 6,000...

Should the United States move towards domestic manufacturing?

jakeleventhal
TruthHurts

Ever since the United States has joined NAFTA, the economy has taken a turn for the worse. Yes, there have been economic gains, especially in Mexico and Canada; however, it's not the United States' job to let other nations prosper while it slowly and inevitably crumbles from the inside. I believe that the United States should make a gradual withdrawal from NAFTA. Many may say that this is a bad idea and impossible but I think it could work. Obviously the United States couldn't abandoned NAFTA in...

Is the fur trade fair?

Sk8
socratits

I know a lot of people might think that this debate is about whether or not it's fair between the humans. Technically that's true. But have you ever thought about the animals? Have you ever thought if it was fair for them. Forget whether or not it's fair for the humans. The animals have a life too. Most people kill the animals brutally. I'm not talking about beating them up. I'm talking about injecting cyanide, skinning them while they're alive, whacking them on the head and all...
