Yes, lego buildings are possible to make if the legos are the size of bricks. If you think about it when you make buildings with these types of legos you dont need to demolish buildings, even if you do demolish the building you are able to use the same pieces again to make a new house. This virtually illiminates the problem...

Capitalism vs. Socialism

TheGentlemanlyMarxist
Rwoot14

For this argument I will be taking the "con" position, which is to be the "socialism" position for the purpose of this debate.

Wage labor is to be defined not simply as labor done for an incentive, but rather labor paid for based on capital an employer feels to pay an employee rather than the social value of a pro...

Experts have described our launch facilities as: "A badly maintained cold war museum", and our facilities are aging and dated. the time is now to refund our missile program, and make the United states an mighty nuclear superpower once again. Contention 1: The United States nuclear arsenal is aging and ineffecti...

There is quite clearly an economic pendulum effect in everything, which, on its largest scale is a swing of economic greatness and disparity between the East and the West. Furthermore we are know in the death throws of Western Economic supremacy, and the East is showing signs of becoming the new super power, which you can see from the similarities in their development and how ours was during the 18th and 19th Centuries. You can use the different periods however you like, there is no structur...

The impact of the collision ripped the small red car into two pieces resulting in a large fireball and instantly killing two 20 year old females. No fatalities occurred within the Suburban. Had the Suburban been a smaller, and more conventional car, the outcome may have been much different and no deaths may...
