A debate topic that is not that common

U.S. wages currently exhibit signs of significant gender inequality.

Virtue ethics is a superior meta-ethical system in comparison to either utilitarianism or deontology.

The term "art" does not apply to many popular mainstream movies.

Realism as a theory of international relations should be rejected.

The use of violence is never justified.

Suicide is never ethically justified.

The last two topics are really interesting. Thanks :D

Stupidity should be a crime.

Masturbation is Murder.

Saudi Arabia should let women drive.

Porn is good for children.

Illuminati Conspiracy Theory (NWO) is a rip-off.

Hitler was a racist.

Pedophile priests should face public shame.

Obama is not a US born citizen.

People with AIDS should be shot to space.

Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin are not the first people to set foot in the moon.

Killing an ET should be a crime.

Note: I offer here debate topics not often done. I do not necessarily agree with any or all of these.

Political Realism is the only consistent philosophy of government.

Golf clothes are obscene.

A maximum speed limit of 15 MPH should be imposed in all urban areas.

Public nudity should be encouraged.

Sex ed classes should feature live demonstrations.

The eating of chicken should be outlawed.

All native species should be represented in our government.

Government officials should be educated from birth for office.

The US should conquer Africa.

Global warming should be encouraged.

People who disagree with me are wrong.

I am wrong.

The person who suggested this debate should win all his future debates.

Telling jokes in public should be illegal.

Food should be free.

It does not make economic sense to tax businesses.

Congress should only be allowed to pass one law a year, and only after passing a balanced budget.

France is irrelevant.

On balance, Americans are rude and ignorant.

The English Channel should be drained and turned into farmland.

Well I will admit these meet the criteria of "interesting" and "not that common"

Cainning should be used on violent and habitual offenders.

How would "empathy" be applied in a court ruling without undermining the rule of law.

Nestle Quick vs Ovaltine.

Short hair vs Long hair.

The Federal Reserve is an abject failure.
It's not your views that divide us, it's what you think my views should be that divides us.

If you think I will give up my rights and forsake social etiquette to make you "FEEL" better you are sadly mistaken

If liberal democrats would just stop shooting people gun violence would drop by 90%

Im going to tweak this to make it a usable resolution:

The use of "empathy" in court rulings undermines the rule of law.

Also, I probably wouldnt use the word "abject" in a resolution. It is difficult to pin down what exactly counts as an "abject" failure plus it is a higher standard than just a regular failure.
