Is America the Best Country in the World?

Putt-Putt
matthewmatt14

This argument will not be used to debate things like patriotism, and I do not want ignorant arguments such as "America is the best because it is." This debate will be used to actually discuss WHY (economically, educationally, militarily, etc.) America is the best, or why it is not. I will be taking the con in this argument. Round One: Acceptance (No Arguments) Round Two: Opening Arguments, No Rebuttals Round Three: Rebuttals, Further Arguments Round Four: No New Arguments, Further Rebuttal...

Socialism is an overall a better system than Capitalism (Devil's Advocate debate)

UtherPenguin
TheJuniorVarsityNovice

DEBATE IMPOSSIBLE TO ACCEPT, READ THE RULES BELOW AND THEN PM OR COMMENT ME IF YOU ARE INTERESTED IN THIS DEBATE. This is a devil's advocate debate, since I am of Socialistic leanings I have decided to play devil's advocate and debate on the side of Con, I expect Pro to do the same meaning that if they are of Capitalist or Conservative leanings then they shall debate on the side of Pro. The variant of Socialism that my opponent debates for is up to them as long as it does not touch on Comm...

Is the world changing for the better (pro for better con for not)

coolkid1231

No, the world is not changing for the better. Threat of nuclear destruction, disease, political and religious conflicts, rising terrorist organizations, faltering birthrates in 1st world countries, failing economies, failing American educational system, voter apathy, running out of resources, "climate change", etc . As much as we'd might like to believe the world is changing for the better; the harsh reality is that the world is becoming overpopulated, fossil fuels are running low and un...

Communism is Fascistic in Principle

Ameliamk1
Wocambs

The issue of Communism is a divisive one, with a growing number of defenders and sympathizers. One of the most common arguments from that camp is to say that Communism, despite its despotic history, is a free system if implemented "correctly". So here is my contention: by it's very tenants, Communism demands and indeed requires the implementation of either martial law or dictatorship. To accept the Con position, my opponent must support the opposite position. Important Terms: Communism: My...

The U.S. Penny Should Be Abolished

Conspiracyrisk
Miss_Persistent

This debate is a redo of one of my previous debates. If you wish, you may view that one first to get the gist of my opinion. However, I am adding the rule that you may not quote anything I said in that debate for the duration of this one. This debate will follow this pattern: Round 1: Opening Statements Only (No Arguments) Round 2: Opening Arguments Only (No Rebuttals) Round 3: Rebuttals Round 4: Closing Arguments (No Rebuttals) Round 5: Rebuttals and Closing Statements I am for abol...

Technology will make capitalism obsolete

ojcruz
The_Intelligence

Capitalism in its many variant forms is a jobs based structure. This requires people to engage in regular chores in exchange for access to resources. Technology will prove adversarial to such a construct through increased and personalized means of production and automation. Since the industrial revolution, technological advancement has streamlined and increased our means of production. This, because technology, defined here as the application of scientific knowledge for practical purposes, b...
