Capitolism

Harlan
Phil

Capitolism creates a tense society where everyone is working for self-promotion. All of our (American) society is based on someone trying to outdo someone else; someone trying to sell something to you; Someone trying to use you for a profit. They see you as a way to make money. Next time your outside in a city, take a look around. Theres billboards trying to use you to make a profit. Theres prople walking around with T-shirts that encourage you to give your money to certain large corporations. W...

It is too hard for women to escape domestic violence.

Cinammon1
Danielle

Throughout multiple experiences discussing the issue of domestic violence, I have come to the conclusion that it is just too hard for women to escape. The ignorance that I have encountered so far is that everyone believes that women will magically become empowered by motivational sayings and speeches and just eventually leave but the fact remains that this is untrue. There are multiple thing that hold women in abusive relationships such as children, religious beliefs, and the biggest one of a...

Child pornography should be legal to posses.

DucoNihilum
rwebberc

Hi, and thanks for accepting this debate challenge. Might I make it perfectly clear to anybody reading this that I am not in support of child pornography, nor the production of child pornography. I strongly believe that abuse like the production of CP should come with punishment. My debate is on the topic of the possession of child pornography. While the possessors of Child Pornography may be sick, wrong, and perverted they are realistically doing nothing to harm anybody. They are not...

Freedom of expression should not be supressed by accusations of sexism.

Danielle

I would like to invite a fellow debater to demonstrate that I am wrong when I contend that freedom of expression should not be suppressed by accusations of sexism and that the controversial comments I may make in the course of my arguments should be kept to myself. I would welcome a challenge from a male or female but I suspect I am more likely to receive a rebuttal from a man, as there appears to be far more male members of debate.org than there are female members. Interestingly, this mirro...

Homosexuality is immoral

J.Kenyon
JimProfit

JimProfit has been trolling the forums lately with his anti-gay spiel. Whenever called out on it, he has been unable to coherently explain *why* he thinks homosexuality is immoral. This has led many to speculate that his feelings are owing to personal issues with denial and self-loathing. Here I've provided him with a platform to explain his views to the DDO community and to dispel such rumors. Because Pro has an onerous burden of proof to uphold, I'll give him a head start to lay out his cas...

Is Homosexuality wrong?

Retrospace18
nerdyandnotsoproud

This question has been raised in many different forms, on this site. Mostly in the form of "Should gay marriage be allowed?". But never to my knowledge has it been discussed directly. So the questions stands. "Is Homosexuality wrong?" Homosexuality is not wrong. 1)Many people, automatically bring up the bible, when faced with this question. And thats fine, for those that believe the bible. But, what about those that dont? Sure the bible has been used to set the foundations of countries an...

Abortion is wrong.

Alex
Tatarize

I am here, not only to state my opinion that abortion is wrong, but to also see the other side of the situation. God creates us all, with a unique personality and mind, and with a role to play in this world. Taking that chance from an individual is wrong. Abortion is murder, if you do not want your baby, or are scared, there are plenty of alternatives to killing it. One of the best, there are couples out there that cannot have a baby of their own and then there are people who are killing...

this house believes that breaking a promise is aleays immoral

francis
Danielle

i say in my side that breaking a promise is always immoral because in the first place when you make a promise you are committing something and if that happens absolutely there is a responsibility and if there is a responsibility specially those which are committed by a person he should fulfill it no matter what. second , I strongly believe that if you make a promise it requires action but action does not require a promise so why make such a promise if you can make an action without it. Yes it is...
