On balance, domestic surveillance control by the US government is beneficial to US interests.

JenniferASun

All I must prove for this argument is that the Domestic Surveillance we have today is more beneficial than getting rid of domestic surveillance in the United States. I also provide the following definition. Domestic Surveillance is any type of surveillance conducted by the United States, including but not limited to CCTV cameras, investigating foreign affairs, and electrical investigations. domestic surveillance is beneficial to the country as a whole because it will hold criminals more accoun...

It is my hope that my preference to debate someone who adheres to Islam, but I'm open to debating anyone incl...

We have all been raised in a society that has convinced us that wrong is right. From childhood, we have actually been taught that animals are something to use, to be made into a sandwich, or a bag or a jacket. That society also once said slavery is okay. All good people follow the golden rule. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Animals qualify as others. They feel fear, pain and grief, just like people. In terms of suffering there is no difference between killing a cow and kil...

In the United States, wealth inequality is detrimental to democratic ideals.

Shelby.Martin
Chang29

C1- Wealth inequality is detrimental to Equality. There are many areas in which the wealthy have more opportunities, one example being education. Most people will agree that private school offers a better education than public school. However, not everyone can afford to spend $9,500 per year (the national average of private school education is $9,518 according to privateschoolreviews.com) on that advanced education, and that"s only for one child. There"s no way a single mom with two children w...
