Rehabilitation is more efficient than imprisonment.

Currently, the legal system operates using a "trash containment" or "trash incineration" approach. This approach seems to use a lot of money, and since they are throwing so many people into prisons, they seem to be running out of room for people in those prisons. https://www.aclu.org/blog/criminal-law-reform-prisoners-rights/senate-hearing-explores-exorbitant-costs-incarceration If the legal system were to adopt a "trash recycling" approach, there would be a large amount of money saved and...

Children should not be allowed to use guns in school even with training.

Before you accept, anyone may join no cussing think before you act. My debate: Children should not be able to use a gun in school even with training. hats because of a child's temptation, anger, use of weapon, school budgets, PTA, health (injuries,) and the child. Temptation, Anger: due to lack of resistance against anger and temptation in most children, children may shoot at a fellow innocent classmate when the child gets angry and tempted. This could lead to a firefight between...

Do use of "profanities" hinder one's credibility/argument?

Mister_Man
Mr.Grace

This came to my mind after finding it is against the terms of service to use profane language on this site. - Does this really matter? I do not imply insults. Insults and profanity or swear words are completely different things. The Wikipedia definition [1] is what I will use. If you do not like that definition, please provide your own. My argument is that the use of profane language should not only not offend someone if it is not used in the form of an insult, but it should not take a...
