Freedom of Expression Is Equivalent to Freedom

holla1755
Youraverageunicorn

Freedom of expression and freedom are equivalent. All freedom is necessarily freedom of expression. Everything a person intentionally does is necessarily an expression by himself or herself and of himself's or herself's. Everything a person intentionally does is necessarily an action he or she wants to do. Expressing is necessarily an action. Each action necessarily has the property that it can be done. For the reasons of the previous two sentences, if a person has the freedom to do any ac...

crime is linked to mental health

Many people would like to place the blame for people's violent instincts on unstable or unhealthy mental wellbeing. However research has shown that this is not necessarily always the case. Most people who commit violent acts, who are thought to be mentally ill, they may be but their violent acts come from a place of displaced anger or emotional issues. In a study of crimes committed by people with serious mental disorders, only 7.5% were directly related to symptoms of mental illness, according...

Unperceived Existence Is Not Possible

JohnSmythe

If I do not perceive a thing, then in my perspective, the thing does not exist.Argument. Assume I do not perceive a thing. Name the thing t. Ultimately, I do not have enough evidence for the existence of t. Since that negative truth is ultimate, in my perspective, t does not exist.

Is religion a delusion? By the term "delusion" one describes a belief which is not supported by any evidence, without that implying that it is necessarily wrong; it stands on pure faith. The same goes for religion. Countless people believe in a higher being, only in order to comfort themselves; and that is to be expected, since religion promises its followers the fulfillment of their greatest wishes: a loving fatherly being which watches them, bestows justice and provi...

Youraverageunicorn

If you are unwilling to read this debate in its entirety before voting, please do not vote on this. Take your time to read both arguments carefully, and develop your own opinion. You previously made a comment on abortion that states: "I believe everyone should have a choice" If that is true, then the unborn child should have a choice, too. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all Men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights,...
