Kim Jong Un warns of retaliation if the movie The Interview is released. Should it ?

TheTaxiDriver
RarityWHYplz

I think a simple comedy movie should not been seen in anyway as a so called "act of war" and it just seems like preventing its release is another step closer to losing more freedom in the world because of corrupt and violent regimes. Since North Korea's nuclear capabilities only have a range as far as Cuba it looks like Kim Jong Un has no chance of starting World War Three therefore I see no reason why it should not be released since it looks very likely that Kim Jong Un is bluffing but if he is...

Death Penalty

I feel that the death penalty should be used in all states. Not for all crimes, but for the serious felonies. For instance, if someone were to murder, the death penalty should be the automatic punishment. An eye for an eye, if you take a life, then yours shall be taken as well....

Communism is an ineffective system and should be abolished

Organicdem
benko12345678

As the proposition I defend one major contention, that communism is an ineffective system of government and should be abandoned. Communism has been proven time and time again to not work. Pol Pot's Cambodia, Stalin's Russia, Mao's China are all perfect examples of this fact. However, I understand that one could argue that we are creating a false correlation. Based on this I shall propose a number of reasons WHY communism did not work in these nations and never will. #1. One cannot mer...

US Government should ban gas cars

z1

I believe that if the US banned gas powered cars, you would be absolutely destroying the US economy. First of all, the average electric car can only travel 40 to 100 miles on each full charge, whereas a gas car can travel 370-400 miles on a full tank. Another thing to think about is how electric cars are not too advanced yet. http://www.ebay.com/gds/How-Far-Can-an-Electric-Car-Travel-on-a-Single-Charge-/10000000177634903/g.html http://askville.amazon.com/miles-car-full-tank-gas/AnswerViewe...
