Resolved: Vigilantism is justified when the government has failed to enforce the law.

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. For clarity I offer the following definitions: Vigilantism:...

Zoos are not out-dated and are necessary for animal conservation

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...

No money for education

Mickeyrocks

Just keep the buildings maintained and let the people use them and manage their use. If they want to just play bingo that is just fine. Why don't the universities cancal classes and just have $port$ since it is what they have done anyway by cutting off funding and letting Monsanto tell Berkeley to fire a prof who showed that there might be adverse effects to GE. Big business is telling us what to teach and ruining any chance of getting an education. We need to free education and give it back to...

Theism

saxmastadrew
KRFournier

The Judeo-Christian idea of God as a Father and judge is incorrect, based on several simple facts: 1. The Holy Bible was written by mortal men and, if it were written today, would be criticized and torn down to complete incredibility. Knowing this, its only redeeming factor is its age, but this is true for all other religious texts as well (making us wonder why the Bible is supposedly the most credible). The Bible is no different than any typical myths. 2. There is no proof of God's existe...

Dropping the atom bomb on Hiroshima/Nagasaki.

JustCallMeTarzan

I think it was totally unecassary to drop the atom bomb on Japan as they were about to surrender anyway and it killed so many people, I also believe that America didn't have full knowledge of the atom bomb, so it was a case of 'I've found something that we can throw at them.' Of course Japan was not totally innocent, as they commited some henious crimes (Pearl Harbour) and I'm not going to argue that Japan was right when it so clearly wasn't (siding with Hitler) but I did not think it was a good...

Legalization of street racing

Peleus

Every year drunk driving kills more people in the u.s than street racing and yet, the fines and penalties are harder on street racers. Drunk driving kills an estamated 144,000 people a year. Street racing kills an estamated 50 people for every 1,000 that attend street racing. Say a guy gets pulled over for drunk driving right, all he will get is 1 night in jail maby 3 and his licens suspended for a few months plus a little fine. ok, now say a guy gets pulled over for street racing or sucpected o...
