Should each safe country accept more refugees?

Phoeni

Good luck to my opponent. I believe that each safe country should not accept more refugees as they have transformed the society in which tbey migrate to instead of settling and assimilating into their societies. An example is Germany, where Islam is starting to slowly become a growing religion due to the immense ridiculous amounts of refugees that had been taken in. Not only had societies been changed due to the results of acceping refugees, but there have been increases in crime from migrants a...

" an article that breaks down the historical uses of the phrase: "Few cases in recent memory have been as con...

Should we create a unified Aboriginal state in the NT

kk1112003

I do not believe that we should create a unified state in the NT as it would most likely be hugely poverty stricken due to the not high amount of resources. It would be much like Zimbabwe. Before it there was a country called Rhodesia which had good ties to the British, it made its money of of diplomatic relations. It was run by White men yet as soon as it was ruled by the natives the country went into ruins and a dictatorship which only ended recently. I believe that state would turn out much t...

TooBigRabbits

The United States should not have legalized the importation of Elephant trophies, and should re-instate it as soon as possible. First round: acceptance. Note: please accept the debate only if you believe the united states was right to legalize the importation of elephant trophies. This is a response to a recent policy, not an abstract philosophical exercise....

Abortion

Abortion has been a very controversial topic for a long time. For those who do not know what an abortion is, the dictionary defines it as "the removal of an embryo or fetus from the uterus in order to end a pregnancy". In other words, ending the baby's life before it is born. First round is for acceptance and opening arguments. Rounds 2,3, and 4 are for rebuttals and counterarguments, and round 5 is for final countering and conclusions. As implied, I will be taking the con side, meaning th...

Estate Tax

TheLiberalSquirrel
Lmoney

One of the big issues of Trump's tax reforms is the repealing of the Estate Tax. I find it hard to support a tax cut that only effects 0.2% of people, and I'm interested to hear the other side of it. I'll let the opponent begin!...
