Russia should not be sanctioned!

Geographia

The arguments in this debate will be based on the negative impact of these sanctions against EU countries (such as Slovenia). In an extreme case, the GDP of Slovenia would decrease by 1,3% resulting in a 1,6 billion euro loss, a worse case would be presented in Denmark, which is Russia's number 1 european trading partner, while Slovenia is in second place. Even Germany opposes this act. If an escalation of Europe's stand-off with Moscow over Ukraine results in economic sanctions, more than 6,000...

Should the United States move towards domestic manufacturing?

Ever since the United States has joined NAFTA, the economy has taken a turn for the worse. Yes, there have been economic gains, especially in Mexico and Canada; however, it's not the United States' job to let other nations prosper while it slowly and inevitably crumbles from the inside. I believe that the United States should make a gradual withdrawal from NAFTA. Many may say that this is a bad idea and impossible but I think it could work. Obviously the United States couldn't abandoned NAFTA in...

Is the fur trade fair?

I know a lot of people might think that this debate is about whether or not it's fair between the humans. Technically that's true. But have you ever thought about the animals? Have you ever thought if it was fair for them. Forget whether or not it's fair for the humans. The animals have a life too. Most people kill the animals brutally. I'm not talking about beating them up. I'm talking about injecting cyanide, skinning them while they're alive, whacking them on the head and all...

This is the alternative to capitalism?

Abolish right to inheritance so that there is complete equal-opportunity. All of the deceased's belonging put into the hands of the state so it can be redistributed back out into the community in the form of welfare, healthcare and education, or something to that effect. Heavy progressive income tax in the same style used in the Nordic model, which is employed by Sweden and Denmark. SOME of the means of production should be put into the hands of the community. There should still be a freemark...

We should decrease cash handouts.

munkhtulgaod
letrashman

Before you all grab your pitchforks and prepare to burn me at a stake, let me explain this argument. 1) This is talking about giving cash to groups of all sizes (people, groups, countries, continents) and all classes (low income, mid income, high income) 2) This does not mean to stop cash handouts completely just decrease. 3) This is not a country specific topic, it is a worldwide issue. 1st round for acceptance only. 2nd round opening statements 3rd rebuttals and summary only (No...
