Gay Marriage should be legal.

Mr_Jack_Nixon

This is meant to be a friendly debate about basic human rights, created primarily because I am terminally bored. Homosexuals, be they male or female, aren't part of some secret sect, they aren't in any way different physically, mentally or emotionally, their political views are just as collectively diverse as heterosexual views, their private activities with each other should be dismissed as none of anyone's business just as easily as the private activities of heterosexual people. Let them...

Firstly I would like to thank my opponent for excepting this debate, and thank the genius that came up with this quote, Albert Einstein. "Your common sense is your natural ability to make good judgments and to behave in a practical and sensible way." Google dictionary (1) Prejudice-Having an opinion on some one or something before seeing it. Working with my definitions, which other than minor semantic corrections are to be used throughout the debate. Looking at the definition of common...

"market inefficiency" is an incoherent phrase

Jon_Smith
Korashk

Efficient is a term used to describe a course of action taken to achieve a goal. I don't personally know what the goal of the market is. Considering the market is a term given to a bunch of free individuals pursuing their values, it is unclear that their goals would overlap in a way that a coherent term can even be given to the "aggregate goals of free individuals". So we don't know what the goal of all free individuals is, we don't know all the actions that free individuals take to go about ach...

to be pupil better rather than student

Bexultan
ani_mess

Today all people know that after schools pupils should enrol on a course of university, there is a doubt that some of the children want to stay in schools. So there is a question what is better to be pupil or student? From my point of view, to be pupil better rather than student. You know that when we became student we have a lot of problems, but these problems we should solve by ourselves. And we have a big responsibility on everything. And it makes our life difficult. In contrast to be pupil m...

Job Creation in the US - Tax outsourcing, Put unemployment beneficiaries to work

MrBlues
wierdman

Our job creation problems is actually fairly simple to solve. We need to tax corporation who outsource their labor... who is going to replace the cheap labor you ask? Easy...The people who collect unemployment need to be put to work. The government pays the unemployed­, the corporations pay the government the same wage they paid the overseas worker. (maybe the government will break even, they can use the rest of the money to help the unemployed - skill training, counseling, home assistan...

Casual sex is irresponsible because it has great potential to cause suffering

maibad
Deathbeforedishonour

These arguments are presented in ascending order of the instigator's belief in their philosophical importance. There is ALWAYS a risk that having sex will create life, which you will then have to either raise or terminate. To create a human life without being ready to provide for its happiness is irresponsible because it causes human suffering to that created child, and may even create suffering to the zygote if it is terminated (please note with respect the "may". We don't know whether or no...
