Is the United Nations Still Relevant?


the wake of the failure of the United Nations (UN) Security Council to legitimate or prevent the 2003 war in Iraq, the summer 2006 impasse over a resolution to the conflict in Lebanon, and the likely September 2006 stalemate with Iran over nuclear development, there are good reasons to be skeptical about the ability of the Security Council and, perhaps, the broader UN to fulfill their mandates to maintain international peace and security. Yet, in the face of new global challenges ranging from en...

Should all medical care be free?


For a long time it has been debated whether or not medical care of differing kinds should be free. I believe that medical care of all kinds should be free-of-cost to all U.S. Citizens. Almost six hundred thousand people are without a home each day in the United States* alone. If one can not afford a house, how can they afford to treat the illness that they have? It was not their choice to contract their disease, disorder, or ailment. Therefore, they should not have the burden of giving up eve...

Should We Have Aquariums


We should not have aquariums since it is imprisoning helpless animals that should have a choice. Humans were put on this Earth to take care of animals, not imprison them to where they can't run around in the wild. Also, guess what? We are a species of animal. Our species is human. Choose the right side and vote against aquariums....

Should we stop hunting Lions?


I think we should stop hunting lions because the population of lions was really high in the 1990-1950 (100,000 to 400,000).Now there is about 16,500 to 47,000 lions left in the wild. Lions don't do anything to us, they just want to avoid us but we provoke them and it get them angry and they start killing people because of us provoking them. We kill them for no reason sometimes just for fun or just to keeps it's head as a trophy. Heard about Cecil the Lion, Scientist were studying that Lion un...
