Its wrong that our civilization lies to the children about Santa Claus

Lukas8
RobertMcclureSmith

I don't want to sound like a crazy fanatic, who"s trying everything to prove that Santa doesn't exist, but we all know that he doesn't and I'm going to debate peacefully about it. The first round is only to accept the debate. The debate, may go a bit off topic. And CON is supposed to say a nice argument, why do we still have to lie to our children about Santa Claus (like tradition"). In mine opinion its quite wrong to lie to our children, every generation, on and on, and on, and on,on" Why ca...

Men should work and women should stay home and look after the children

jess8888

Women and men should work and get paid and women shouldn't have to stay at home to look after the children. Both genders offer different skills which are valuable to society. Just as those skills can be utilised in a home setting, they can also be used in a boardroom. Over the years, women have fought for equality and the right to work. It isn't fair that a man should have to work and make the money while the woman stays at home. If men and women work, it also increases the income in that hou...

'White' flight stems from subliminal guilt and a desire to have an unjust advantage

mentalist
gomergcc

The scenario of 'white' flight that is manifested in the United States stems from the subliminal guilt of non-melaninated peoples regarding the past and present systems of racial and economic bias and discrimination developed,propagated and maintained by the evaders and their ancestors. The scenario also emanates from a desire of those evaders to procure and maintain an unjust and inequitable advantage in areas such as housing, schooling, etc.. Shared Bop Con will have to show that 'white' flig...

Gun Right, Again I Know, Extreme vs Withdrawn

Voiceless

Hey ladies and gents :). Now I know what you're thinking," Man, not another gun debate," but today myself and my friend Voiceless will be arguing from an Extreme ( argued on behalf of myself) and an Anti ( argued on behalf of Voiceless ) firearm point of view. We hope not only to argue on the behalf of our fellow debaters, but also to come to a fair and equally recognizable compromise between the two parties. Comments are greatly encouraged along with circumstantial evidence for both sides to us...

I don't think that anyone is going to accept this, since it's nearly impossible with so many harms, but if you do then great! This is going to be a quick and simple debate. Only two rounds, with round one being only for constructive cases, and round two for only rebuts to constructive cases. Only 4000 characters. We're going to be debate on [RESOLVED: IT IS A MORALLY JUST, AS WELL AS SOCIETALLY JUST, IDEA TO BAN ALCOHOL FROM THE GENERAL PUBLIC], with me in the negation side of things, and m...

Adults, without violence related felonies, should have the right to carry a concealed firearm.

Dagen
BrightStream

To start out carrying a concealed handgun in public is permitted in all 50 states as of 2013, when Illinois became the last state to enact concealed carry legislation. Some states require gun owners to obtain permits while others have "unrestricted carry" and do not require permits. Proponents of concealed carry say that criminals are less likely to attack someone they believe to be armed. They cite the 2nd Amendment's "right of the people to keep and bear arms," and argue that most adults w...

Officer Darren Wilson Should Have Been Indicted

BillionBrainCells
frozen_eclipse

There was enough evidence to at least take aspects of the case to trial. This is not a racial issue. This is not about political agenda's. This is about the simple fact a teenager was murdered in broad daylight. 15 witnesses say Brown had his hands in the air when the last shot was fired, 2 do not. Officer Wilson says he was in fear for his life "It was like a 5 year old vs. Hulk Hogan" but was not bleeding and did not have any visible facial injuries (besides a dime sized pink mark)....

Feminism is necessary in modern First World countries.

rikomalpense
Nivek

Many of the arguments feminists utilize to justify the existence of a feminist movement in developed countries are outdated or myths. For example, the wage gap does not exist. Putting aside the fact that it is illegal to pay someone less for doing the same job [1], discrepancies in wages result from the fact many women simply are not going into higher paying jobs, and often quit early to take care of family [2]. While it can be argued that this wage gap is a result of the 'patriarchy' forcing...
