I would like to debate in LD format. Thanks! "Since the governments are in the pockets of businesses, who's going to control this most powerful institution? Business is more powerful than politics, and it's more powerful than religion. So it's going to have to be the vigilante consumer." It is because I agree with Anita Roddick that I affirm the resolved, vigilantism is justified when the government has failed to enforce the law.

Animal conservation has become a hot topic more recently between scientists, the media and the public. There are huge debates about whether animal conservation is necessary and the advantages and disadvantages of in situ and ex situ conservation. A main concern is ex situ conservation (i.e. zoological parks). Many people see zoos as out-dated and cruel. Exotic wild animals are kept in man-made enclosures under unnatural environmental and social conditions and surplus animals are usually eutha...

I am against the use of the death penalty in the US court system. My main reasoning behind this political position is the high cost required of tax payers to keep an inmate in jail on death row. The average cost to keep a prisoner in jail on death row for one year is $44,000. This amount of money increases every year that the prisoner is in the prison system, which adds up over time for taxpayers....
