Is bullying, or being bullied, a function of a healthy society? Are our values becoming too sweet?

Changing sociological norms and values of American society or culture seems to have a general trend towards the greater good. While this is a very crucial aspect of American integrity - freedom and justice - there is indeed a certain limit to how far we can progress this trend. At a certain point, we begin to regress; stripping away the justifiable freedoms of some and lending special treatment to others. I am not speaking of healthcare, welfare, 401K's - none of that.

Legalisation of cannabis in the USA

OneOpinion123
arch1ve

I have decided to make this debate because I believe that legalisation of cannabis is a step closer to a crime free USA. This might sound strange, but the thing is that selling cannabis is one ot the biggest sources of income for criminal gangs like the Hells Angels, and so on.
