Should we (P) innovate in dense, low-income areas, or should we (C) move the people out altogether?

Kwhynot

Many communities in developing countries have adapted sustainable means of building (Diebedo Francis Kere) and powering their communities (Grameen Shakti), but as cities get denser and denser, they're running extremely low on resources and room. Technology is available in developed, much less dense communities; Samso Island has a renewable energy community that produces MORE than it uses, so it goes back into the Denmark grid, and the farmers and factory workers who have shares in the power...

Stoner Rock Debate #2

intellectuallyprimitive
honkytime

This is my second musical debate. My and my opponent will provide our favorite stoner rock songs and the voters will vote according to which song they enjoyed the most. Do not accept if you are not familiar with stoner rock or if you are not earnest about the debate. Only one song per round is permitted. My opponent may begin in his/her first round because I intend to. Weedater- Jason the Dragon https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9F21xidkqPMs...

Can people with ASP be successfully integrated in society under vigilant follow-up and therapy?

Kwhynot
TheLadyofTheInternet

Over the past few decades, we've made remarkable progress in treating people with neurological disorders, such as ADHD and clinical depression, and giving them the means to integrate with society successfully as opposed to dealing with them as 'lost causes'. Yes, there is room for improvement, but more people today seek treatment and are successfully integrated in society as successful people. Personality disorders, however, is more of a grey area, because we don't understand the biochemistr...

Morality is subjective

Benshapiro
Batman3773

This will be a Devil's advocate debate for me. Here are some key definitions that you must accept before agreeing to the debate. If any of these are problematic leave a comment and I'll change them if need be. Subjective: true depending on opinion. Objective: always true regardless of opinion. Morality: a system of good and bad or right and wrong behavior. Morally good: behavior that we ought to do. Morally bad: behavior that we ought not to do. My opponent will argue that mora...

The democrats are more racist than the republicans

Flipbook
abstrackedruth

This is my first debate since a long inactivity period following a rage induced set of poor arguments. Rules: There is no status quo, therefore burden of proof is shared. This is about racism, not sexism. If sexism is argued in the place of racism... Then maybe you can get away with it if it's a strong enough argument. I believe that all races are equal and the only true way to not be racist is to not acknowledge that race exists. Con can start first....

The Riots Following the Murder of Michael Brown in Ferguson were/are Morally Justified

Hierocles
DavidMGold

Rd 1 - acceptance and rules Rd 2-5. Debating Each debater must have a credible source for all definitions and claims. Treat each essay like an academic paper. Citations are a must. BOP must be shared, judges should vote for whoever made the best case. Nothing can be proven nor disproven since this is an ethical debate. Normally I'm more specific but I'm typing this on my phone. I trust my opponent will accept the spirit of the debate and not force me to define it ad nauseum....
