Apple Helps Stifle Innovation

tuxagon

Economic Understanding should be Acquired Before Exercising Union/Voting Powers

wxyz2000

The topic simply means that people should have a basic understanding of economics and basic proficiency in financial literacy before being able to exercise voting and union powers. I am not going to argue about whether or not such an option is implementable, but only whether or not it should. By "basic proficiency" I mean that people should know how to compound interest, what government debt and deficit is, how a bank works, how a credit card works, etc. Things we will encounter in our daily liv...

Slang is a symptom of decadence

tpmassive
tuxagon

My argument is that slang is a sign that moral as well as ethical values are being lost. This can be observed by the way in which some slang words have been incorporated into the English language. Preference of slang words to conventional and formal words is also evidence of my stance. Furthermore, the way in which some slang words, most of which can be found on the urban dictionary website, are linked to sensual and rather vulgar phenomena shows that the unmoral and the immoral have teamed up t...

Is Nintendo really for kids?

SavageSalamence
SakuraBlossom950

No, I definitely do not believe Nintendo is for children. Nintendo is a family system, it's meant to be enjoyed by every person in the household, everyone wants to play it. If I instead bought a Sega Saturn or an Xbox into the room, I don't think many people would move towards it. Now I attend high school. And I've heard people in my class being trolls by saying "I played Mario when I was five, it was easy, it only had three buttons" and saying that it was boring. Let me tell you, have you play...
