Debating is good for you!

My first debate on here! As many people try to stay away from politics and science, their will to debate has decreased. This is a problem, since debating has many good effects on people, such as: -It gets people to think critically. -Debate can challenge bias. -You can meet many cool people by debating. -Debate can encourage positive action. And many more. I don't know why anyone who dislikes debate would be on this website, but I'd like to hear the standpoint of anyone who dislikes it,...

Debate.Org User Information Bulletin (Official)

bsh1

Aloha!This debate, formerly known as the "Debate.Org Presidential Bulletin," is part of an effort I am making to reach out to more areas of the site and to update more users about site programs. I recognize many members may not frequently visit the forums, and so I conceived of this debate as an alternate way to disseminate information out into the larger DDO community. I will post information about several programs that users can avail themselves of in this debate,...

Get rid of the border

WhatIsYourProof
IcyCream

When Great Britain came to America, they immigrated. The Indians welcomed them, and the colonist stabbed them in the back. Then they built borders to "protect" themselves. After that they robbed land, killed for land, and then threatens to deport or detain anyone that isn't an "American Citizen". I will like a clean and calm debate....

I'm from the state of Oklahoma, , I was wrongly convicted of a CDS charge less than 7 years ago , and this is considered a non-violent crime. I've applied at many jobs and get denied because of a bad background check, they go 7 years back. I have a child now that I struggle to support because these job applications-even at fast food places ask if you've been convicted of a felony. when most jobs see that you put "yes" they throw your application in the trash,no questions asked. It's considered d...

It is wrong to kill one to save many

Sarah9019a
TheOneAndOnlySinner

Full resolution: It is morally unacceptable to kill one innocent person to save the lives of more innocent people. Rules: 1. Don't forfeit because it causes a glitch. If you don't want to make arguments, just say that and submit the argument. 2. Please don't troll. 3. Kritiks are fine. If you use semantics, I might run topicality on you, but if you are prepared for that go ahead. 4. Burden of proof is shared. 5. GoogleDocs are not a violation of conduct as long as they remain within the...
