"S" is not Harry Truman's middle initial

Kescarte_DeJudica
lighth0us3

In this debate, I will attempt to prove that, contrary to popular belief, "S" is not Harry Truman's middle initial. This will require disproving any and all books, monuments and government documents that read "Harry S. Truman". Why am I doing this? Does it really matter whether or not S is his middle initial? No, not really, but I am a little worn out on traditional debates and wanted to do something different. Here are the rules: 1. No Forfeiting. 2. Follow the Outlined Debate Structu...

Give me riddles

PowerPikachu21
Perussi

I'm going to do something a little different. The Contender must give me at least 6 riddles for me to answer correctly.All riddles must have a true answer. No presented riddles can contain a paradox (like saying "This statement is false. Is it?). If I do catch a paradoxal statement, I automatically get a point. If the question has no true answer (Can't really come up with an example), then I automatically get a point. I'll try to answer the questions the best I can, as to not ab...

THW implement mandatory military service

ZACwuzhier
Agonist

In a world where "freedom of choice" is a right people abuse wrongly, today on proposition, we believe that mandatory military service should be an exception to this abused right. Today I will begin the debate with two arguments: 1 How it will promote Equality 2 How they can protect others, and those before them. But to begin, I will present my Model: You must join between the age of 18 and 35, and you can have a week off for weddings, funerals, etc. Your time in the military will end after...

Alan Turing Should Have Chosen Celibacy

MasturDbtor
dr.jimmythefish

Alan Turing was one of the greatest minds of the 20th century. His contributions to computer science helped crack the enigma machine the Germans used in their submarines, and helped to push forward the progress of information technology. Unfortunately for the world and for himself Alan Turing was persecuted for being a homosexual, forced to chemically castrate himself, and driven to suicide. That was a horrible. Nobody should ever be persecuted for their sexual orientation, especially not...

Should the Death Penalty Be Allowed?

Franchie
EXOPrimal

Life is sacred. This is an ideal that the majority of people can agree upon to a certain extent. For this reason, taking the life of another has always been considered the most deplorable of crimes, one worthy of the harshest available punishment. Thus arises one of the great moral dilemmas of our time. Should taking the life of one who has taken the life of others be considered an available punishment? Is a murderer's life any less sacred than the victim's is? Can capital punishment, the death...

Communist's moral goals

dr.jimmythefish
RonPaulConservative

This debate is on the validity of the claims of the communist manifesto; is there a oppressed people in today's society? I believe there is; the world has three peoples the poor who remain poor, the middle class who fight to not be poor, and the rich who feel the need to become endlessly richer. This process of competition endlessly screws the poor. They are considered fodder to be ripped off. Those who resist are branded radical leftists, or communists....

Should taxes for smoking be raised?

LogicalPen
Seth_MIller

Now, I don't smoke, but here are my thoughts on this. If taxes for cigarettes were increased, sure, people would probably think something along the lines of "But, that would mean that the price for cigarettes would increase. How is that bad?" I have two words for you. Black market. I will explain more in the next round. Also, this is my first making a debate, so if the format of this doesn't make sense, I apologize. Thank you and good luck....
