There must be a progressive tax rate that taxes those who earn more

There must be a progressive tax rate that taxes those who earn more. I saw this comment from Spartan9876, so I copied and pasted here to start a debate. Are you up challenge? In your comment you state: I argue that it is not just to have a society that has such inequalities (I am looking at you USA); there is no justification whatsoever for people to be left destitute while others have billions. There are two ways to correct such an issue: 1) a complete nationalisation of all property...

Resolved: The United States federal government should substantially increase its economic and/or dip

ChrisMandelaJunior

We cannot have a policy of economic stagnation between two countries. With this period of economic interconnectedness, China's economic problems are our economic problem, and vice versa. Right now, viewing China as the Big Bad Wolf is not a correct position to take. In actuality, it is not even a grown-up position to take. If we allow ourselves to become friends and cooperate with China, who knows what problems could be resolved. In particular, the problem of North Korea could be easily flushed...

The "National Debt" is not a problem.

I will be arguing that the "national "debt" is not a problem at all. In fact, it's necessary, and attempts to lower the debt or "balance the budget" are completely misguided. I will lay out my points: * A government that can print its own dollars and doesn't peg their currency cannot run out of dollars. Of course, the government can't just create 22 trillion dollars from thin air, resource constraints exist. However, we are nowhere near full output. * The "national debt" is a silly political l...

Should students in elementary school be able to bring a phone to school?

Now_you_do

I think that students in school should be able to use phones. I know a school that has a phone right next to the office to call parents, and there is always a LONG line for it. I also think bus trips become dull and boring. Also, most schools are, seven hours long and students need a REST!!! I think it would be easier for studying too, because contacting parents would be easier, if a study group wanted to come together. Students should be required to put their devices inside of cubbies/lockers,...

Wage Gap

Hello! I would like to debate this topic with you. If this goes well, I may debate other topics regarding feminism. Even if you aren't interested, please reply to let me know whether I should expect to debate you or not. Pro's stance is that women, in the same field, make substantially less than men due to no other factors besides the wage they are given in many different instances. Con's stance (Me) is the opposite. Women in the same field make just as much as men due to no other factors...

The Federal Reserve

The Federal Reserve Debate: "Whoever controls the volume of money in our country is absolute master of all industry and commerce and when you realize that the entire system is very easily controlled, one way or another, by a few powerful men at the top, you will not have to be told how periods of inflation and depression originate." - James A Garfield Point 1: The constitution and constitutional money: Article 1 Section 8 Sentence 5 of the constitution clearly states: "Congress shall have t...

Is the United Nations Still Relevant?

NoorH606

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...
