So you're against patriotism? I'm Pro patriotism.

You're against patriotism? Why don't you just leave the country. If you were in a Nazi concentration camp during WW2 you'd be pretty patriotic when those war monger US troops came to save your azz. What an ungrateful jerk......

Children should be lied to

brittwaller
polka-dots323

I believe that lying to children, whether in the form of perpetuating silly myths like the existence of Santa Claus, the Easter Bunny, and the Tooth Fairy, or by withholding factual answers to their questions about subjects such as sex and death, is bad, primarily for the children themselves but also for society as a whole. Lying either directly or by omission is harmful because children eventually find out the truth, and an air of distrust is created. Children hear their parents say "It's w...

Topic #29: Plea Bargaining should be Banned. (Attempt 2)

Darth_Grievous_42
PublicForumG-d

Topic 29 of Round 2. Darth_Grievous_42 vs PublicForumG-d. To be judged by usernames Evan_MacIan, shaqdaddy34, and dmill2010. As Pro, I will be defending that Plea Bargaining should be banned, thus the polar opposite of my stance that PublicForumG-d will have to defend is that Plea Bargaining should NOT be banned. As I am not well versed in foreign court procedures, I will be arguing from an American Perspective. If my opponent wishes to bring up worldwide cases he is more than welcome to do so,...

Homosexuals are perfectly justified and deserve all the rights of other people.

giuocob
beem0r

So...gays are definitely people. Their homosexual actions have no negative impact on anyone but themselves (placing them apart from rapists and pedophiles.) Therefore, no country is morally justified in placing restrictions against any of their rights. Whoever accepts this debate must find a reason why we have a right to discriminate against gays....

Gay marriage should be legal.

adaffodil
CiRrO

Simply put, it should be legal. I can find no compelling argument as to why it shouldn't be legal. So, I will ramble a bit. This must get to 100 words. I like words. Words are wordsy. Words, words, words. Sentences too. Also, two. Sentences are collections of words put together, often beginning with a capital letter and ending with a punctuation mark....

The deregulated "free" market is unsustainable

Shtookah
RoyLatham

Free Market - Business governed by the laws of supply and demand, not restrained by government interference, regulation or subsidy. Externality - Activities and conditions whose benefits (called external economies) and costs (called external dis-economies) are not reflected in the market price of goods and services. The primary feature of an externality is that one entity's action directly or indirectly changes the options available to other entities. Regulation - Principle or rule (with o...

"We live in an atmosphere of shame. We are ashamed of everything that is real about us; ashamed of ourselves, of our...

Gay marriage

Ross
dulinl

Gay marriages ought to be allowed because we need to respect them at rational and consenting human beings with the right to life liberty and property. Moreover, the right to marry does not impede our rights in any way and therefore it is not the governments place to prevent equal treatment. Furthermore, the tradition of marriage has been a fluent and evolving beast that will not be deteriorated by the allowance of free individuals to commit to each other in the name of love and commitment....
