Freedom of the Press ought to be valued over National Security

SpiffyTexan
Daltonian

No government ought to be without censors; and where press is free, none ever will. -Thomas Jefferson It is because I agree with Thomas Jefferson that I must negate the resolution resolved: That national security ought to be valued above freedom of the press. Now to define some key terms. Definitions: National Security- The responsibility of the government to protect the lives of its citizens from threats, both foreign and domestic. Freedom of the press-The right, guaranteed by the First...

Animals should not be kept in cages

LatinaGirl8894
TheSymbiote

The question is not, "Can they reason?" nor, "Can they talk?" but rather, "Can they suffer?" ~Jeremy Bentham 1. Cages are Harmful "Wire cages are the standard in commercial breeding. Sadly, though, there is no limit to the damage wire cages can do to dogs' health. They experience joint and limb discomfort and irregular growth from standing on the wires. Their paw pads can be badly bruised or cut from the hard metal. Because wire cages aren't comfortable, dogs remain standing for longer pe...

Hitting a girl is okay in self defense

Wylted
Garbanza

Minimum debates needed to accept is 5 to help prevent forfeits.There are idiots on this site who think it's okay for a guy to hit a girl in self defense. I'm under the impression that it's okay for a girl to hit a guy in self defense but not visa versa. BOP should be shared for this type of debate. Pro is arguing that it's okay for a man to hit a woman in self defense. I will be arguing that it's not okay for a man to hit a woman in self defense.The exception to this woul...

Airpower can hold Land.

Jingle_Bombs
AbandonedSpring

A simple two round discussion about whether or not air forces by themselves can hold land. I intend to show through historical examples and modern warfare theory that the air forces of today can indeed complete the Army's role of 'clear, secure, and occupying land' without needing large battalions of ground troops for support. Con will have to prove that winning major wars still requires a ground component and that boots on the ground are vital for its success. This debate is open to anyone with...
