Is Shutting Down Club Penguin to Start Anew a Good Idea?

Sinque
EverythingIsMacabre

When I was younger, I played a lot Club Penguin. Recently, I heard they are shutting down the game after 11 years to start 'Clup Penguin World', a 3D version of the game. I was of course a bit sad, but mostly curious how the game would do, business wise.My argument is that Club Penguin World will be a failure, and Disney should have kept Club Penguin and done something to it, e.g. an update.-Round 1 is accepting the challenge. After that, anything goes.-B...

Should the Minimum Wage be abolished in the United States?

KingHades1722
Andrew-Cheng

Prerequisites: Be somewhat polite. This does not mean that you have to tip-toe around disproving my points, if you find yourself in a position to disprove them; merely, do not resort to insults and general degradation. As to my position, I am a firm believer that an abolishment of a minimum wage would be beneficial for the economy of the United States....

Is capitalism the best economic system?

We have a solid, open, and opportunistic economy. The American Dream! Capitalism drives us to make money, to make corporations that provide jobs, and to create the goods and services which gives Western society its high quality...

You've made the following comment a few hours ago about capitalism:"it can be a good idea if you have a bad country and everyone is poor. but if u are living in a wealthy country it will be unfair on the people who are working hard but are getting the same amount of stuff as a dust bin cleaner "In this, you've affirmed that capitalism is a great system for bringing a third world country out of poverty. But if you can see that this system is so great at creating pr...

I would suggest that con use the first round just for acceptance, but they could still use it for argument if they want, but in...

Should the rich help the middle class and poor???

cweagle7712
ConservativeGiraffe

I have 2 main arguments in support of this issue. 1) i believe the rich must share in the profits they produce, and not hoard it all to themselves. It does not make sense for them to keep every single dime they make. They are the reason we have so much corruption in this country, and they are the reason the economy has been virtually stagnant. 2) class division is completely unethical. It makes me sick to my stomach to think that there are LITERALLY people who seek out the poor, and m...
