Keep this debate purely intellectual and political. Comment below to apply, I will choose an opponent. This debate should be impossible to accept, doing so...

missmedic

I will be arguing that there is nothing wrong with homosexuality. Since there is nothing intrinsically wrong about homosexuality from a secular perspective, do adult consensual homosexual acts and same-sex partnerships have harmful consequences?...

drug legalization

All drugs should be legal. The choice of use should be an individual decision. Instead of incarcerating thousands each year and fighting a losing drug war, we should spend our tine and money on education. We should educate the public on the benefits(if any) of every drug. Also the dangers and harm they cause. Give the people all the information there is and allow them to make an educated choice. Instead of false propaganda lets tell the truth about drugs. Some have beneficial use some do not. It...

I am a student and I think that with the way children/teens act in today's society they need to be disciplined in some way shape or form. Give me your opinions, should we bring it back or not? If we have more punishment in schools and daycares just think how much more respect kids would give their parents. I think it should be brought back, and kept ....

Should Asylum Seekers be Welcomed?

xoxtalking.cute
CannedBread

Yes. Asylum seekers should certainly be welcomed in countries. What are asylum seekers? They are poor, hopeful, and unfortunate though innocent, people. For example, during wars, many asylum seekers seek refugee in different countries, because they want to live a better life. Happily, with their family. They have done nothing wrong to start a war in their country, but it just happens to be that way. A war begins before they know it. Did they ask for a war? NO! Of course not. They just wanted...
