The Armenian Genocide Was By Definition a "Genocide"

Spedman
tahir.imanov

I have heard very mixed accounts of what happened during the event known as the Armenian Genocide. I myself am not an ethnic Armenian, but I love Armenian culture which has graciously been shared by one of my favorite rock bands, System of a Down. There seems to be a lot of controversy behind this event concerning what actually happened and whether or not it was Genocide. I believe that in definition it was indeed a Genocide. Genocide: the systematic and widespread extermination or attempted...

THW impose higher tax on married couples who choose not to have children.

clajen0112
dexterbeagle

Under the motion THW impose higher tax on married couples who choose not to have children, I would first like to define the problem and move on to my argument. I believe that the problem of the society is low productivity. As people have low birth rate, the productivity also gets lower. I believe having babies actually contribute to the society, and how tax contributes to the society must be equal with how having babies actually contribute to the society. As I have fully defined the problem, now...

Bennett91
cwt002

Round 1 is for brief acceptance and laying down ground rules and definitions. The topic of this debate is to question whether or not Gay Marriage should be legal in all of the US. This is a debate about legality and civil rights, not a debate about how gays are gross therefore don't deserve rights. I don't want to limit the range of possible arguments my opponent may bring however arguments based on Religion, and "morals" that stem there from, must meet a rigorous criteria in order to be seen...

There is a need for old age homes in this generation

prefdave
Atheist-Independent

In this time and age, where money is the main aim for many people, parents who spend all their money and time to raise a child, are finally rejected by the very same child, and are dumped of at a pleasant looking 'Old Age Home' for the 'good' of their parents. Now for people looking at these homes from the outside, they look like heaven on earth, with anything you can ask for. But the parents who are sent there endure a feeling of pain that cannot be described- the pain of rejection. Why do we h...
