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?

Industrialization in India does not benefit the poor


India's industrialization has played havoc with its poor. The juggernaut of industrialization leaves the great Indian middle class climbing aboard over the bodies of the struggling masses or staying out of the way. Today, the sign of destruction looms nowhere larger than in agriculture. India is dying rather than living in her villages. All natural resources such as land, water, forest, which used to be common property indispensable for people's survival, are being forcibly acquired by the st...

Adults are unfair to children


I think that adults are being unfair to children. I'm not just saying that because I'm rebellious. I wish I could provide more in depth information, but I have to leave in 4 minutes. They're hypocritical and they don't understand what other children have to go through with them. That's all I can say right now. Bye....

Parents should be legally identified and held responsible


The full resolution is: "The parents of each child should be identified as a legal requirement and the parents shall be held responsible by the government for the costs of raising the child." Parents should be held responsible for the care of their children. Unidentified fathers cannot be held responsible. The problem is growing due to the large number of births outside of legal marriage, many with unidentified fathers. In the US in 2007: * Number of live births to unmarried women: 1,5...
