Philanthropy Should Be Compulsory

David12N
LuciferWept

I want to argue that philanthropy should be compulsory or close to compulsory. A special tax, opt-out charity donations, etc. Five assumptions on why, Not enough money is going to philanthropy. Efforts to significantly increase philanthropy have not been successful. Philanthropy can do good things. {For example, not for profits are better at finding people work than the government}. It is easier to get the money through something like tax than thousands of fundraisers. Italy has a s...

Nedmold
DarkGroundXD

Lmao how do people still believe that god is real? "A being of power in the sky". yea right. There is so much proof disproving the bible. Evolution has been proved. It has been proved Jesus couldn't have turned water into wine. Then there are the dumbasses who believe in children's stories like "Noah's Ark." 1. A boat that big could not have fit 2 of every type of animal that live today. 2. There was no big flood according to the Egyptians, as well as any other tribe living there when there was...

SkySky16

Human Cloning is not safe and there are many risks that we should not be willing to take. For one, what if someone gets this idea that they should bring back someone like Adolf Hitler or Osama Bin Laden? Yes, you may say, they may act differently, but how would we know until we actually clone someone. Also, waht about unknown diseases that they may have. Recently, there was a girl found in the ice, preserved from over 500 years ago. So what if we cloned, her and say we didn't know about a d...

FourTrouble

This is a debate about mafia, that game we play in the forums. Wikipedia defines the game as follows: Mafia, also known as Werewolf, is a party game created by Dmitry Davidoff in 1986 modelling a conflict between an informed minority, the mafia, and an uninformed majority, the innocents. At the start of the game, each player is secretly assigned a role affiliated with one of these teams. The game has two alternating phases: night, during which the mafia may covertly "murder"...

Should abortion be legal in the United States?

G.limon
L.Quezada

Abortion has been around for years for a way for women to not have to give birth to a child but many disagree that it should be illegal as it is wrong. I disagree with this statement as their are many reasons why it should stay legal. Procon stated on their website on February 1st, 2017 that women can control their own bodies and have the right to do whatever they want with it including abortion. This allows women to pursue goals they want to achieve without the obstacle of having a child....
