Prostitution should be legalized

philosophicalnutcase
dloos121

There is no crime without a victim. That's the universal moral rule. And in the United States, our laws are made to comply with indisputable morality- not religious/cultural morality (if the Amish made law, we'd have quite a different dress code) not subjective morality (vegans would have banned meat). Prostitution, however, is not inherently wrong except religiously, culturally, or individually.

"There's a virtual consensus among economists," the Times wrote, "that the minimum wage is an idea whose time has passed." So, economists and the liberal paper were on the same page (pun intended). Why? Because they understood th...

icebeartheawesome

Justified means having a reason for it which outweighs any disadvantages. Looking forward to debating this with a worthy opponent. If you forfeit a round it is an immediate win for me....
