Does Socialism work in a realistic society?

The_Nameless

Would Socialism work in a realistic society? In my opinion the answer is no. I will be debating for the 'con' side, meaning that I believe socialism can not function properly as a government system. My opponent will be taking the 'pro' side, meaning they believe that socialism actually does work as a government system. First round is for acceptance. Good luck....

Aside from the debatable (and marginal) "income inequality", i stand by the claim that women in North America have a greater chance to succeed/prosper and live comfortably.

My assertion is that the Sith are not inherently "evil." So first I will define my terms so we may avoid ambiguity. Sith - Fictional dark-jedi order from Star-Wars. Evil - "profoundly immoral and malevolent." Immoral - Not conforming to accepted standards of morality. Round 1: Introduction Round 2: Arguments/Rebuttal Round 3: Rebuttal/Conclusion 72 hours per round. 10k Characters.

This is my first Debate. In order to get a feel for this site I've decided to start my first debate with something that I've studied for years and am deeply intrigued by. On July 4 1776, Thirteen Colonies declared Sovereign Statehood and broke away from their oppressive government. Shortly after winning their war for secession they enacted the Articles of Confederation which, not only reinforced their Individual Sovereignty, prevented the creation of another oppressive Central Government. Ov...

Smacking Children

"When a big child hits a small child in the playground, we call him a bully; five years later he punches a woman for her handbag and is called a mugger; later still, when he slugs a workmate who insults him, he is called a troublemaker; but when he becomes a father and hits his tiresome, disobedient or disrespectful child, we call him a disciplinarian." I believe that this quote that I have taken from 'Children First', a novel by Dr Penelope Leach, showcases the inconsistency in the protection...

Round one is for acceptance only. Most of the Burden of Proof is rested on me.
