Capitalism is one of the main reasons for suffering in society.

MCAC
Mantizah

Capitalism has been born out of human greed, and insecurity. As Tupac Shakur said "They have money for wars but can't feed the poor". Capitalism is basically having money but not using it for anything but to make more money. I am not for socialism or any other popular system. I simply believe that people should stop focusing on money as it is an imagined concept- its cotton or paper notes and round pieces of metal that have drove humanity to madness. As Marshall Mathers said "money is what makes...

Why Perseus is the best mythological Greek hero of all time.

laurenjames
AthenaMusic10

Perseus is the number one best mythological hero of all time for many reasons. Not only is he the son of Zeus (the king god of the universe) and killed a crazy mermaid called medusa (the one with snakes for hair), he also showed much compassion by helping out someone that he did not even know. He, Perseus, is much better than Jason because although he was trusted to receive gifts from the gods, he was given them in ready-to-use condition, unlike how Perseus had to figure out the best possible us...

Divorce should be carefully regulated

Smooth1
Jevinigh

Too many people are utilizing the escape of divorce. Nearly 50% of today's marriages end in a divorce. An unbelievable statistic for a process in which is basically a contractual obligation. There should be some enforcement that challenges the process of divorce in order to decrease the current percentage. A popular celebrity was married for 55 hours before she got granted a divorce. That alone validates the public opinion that divorce is an acceptable act, when it should not be promoted as such...

Lawful concealed carry is a good thing

tyler3923
alfred311

Welcome to the debate. I will be arguing in favor of concealed carry by law abiding citizens. I welcome you to use the first round for an opening argument. You may argue against an individual carrying or that it is detrimental to society as a whole. As always, verifiable facts with sources will be weighed more favorably than made up hypothetical anecdotes....

Should people have to note their gender orientation to school administrators?

HollyMaxSpencer
RyGonX

I don't think people should have to note if they are straight or gay. It's their business, and they can like who they want to like. Most people probably wouldn't answer truthfully for fear of discrimination. Schools should promote tolerance, and making people 'admit' things they would rather keep private is not a way of helping its process move faster, in my opinion. Students should want to be open with teachers, not trying to hide anything, like this type of question on school forms might make...

Should people HAVE to take relationships seriously?

Victoria963
Tiki.B

Should people who are dating, take it seriously? Meaning, commitment should be in mind at some point, whether it's with the one you're currently with, or with a different person. I feel a person should NOT be able to date if they don't take it seriously, meaning they are committed to the person they are with and don't treat it like it's not that big of a deal. I also feel if you date someone for a long period of time, you HAVE to make the decision. Will you eventually marry this person...

Should the man decide whether or not the woman has an abortion?

lazanya27
jaksunmadness

Well, it should most definitely be more in favor of the woman's choice. The woman, the one that would have to actually give birth to and care for the child, would/should definitely know the risks of having a baby. The men don't have to participate in caring for the child, but don't tell the woman that she can't have her own baby! It's her body, and she has every right to do what she wants with it, so back off....

I'm the biggest Tolkien fanatic!

jrrjacques
9spaceking

I am willing to assume that I am the most fanatical about John Ronald Ruel Tolkien's mythopia on this website. I believe I know more about it than anyone else (with the exception of being able to speak any of his languages). I would love to see someone beat me so I know I am not a loner on this subject. In the first round you must state 1. approximately how long you have been a fan. 2. what books you have read and how many times. 3. what nationality you are. I have been a fan from...

Second-wave and third-wave feminism have, all in all, detrimentally affected the USA.

Resolution: "Second-wave [1] and third-wave [2] feminism have, all in all [3], detrimentally [4] affected the United States of America [5]" The first round is for acceptance. (Right now, this debate is impossible to accept. If you are interested in debating this topic, post in the comment section.)
