Resolved: Military Conscription is Unjust.


Here is the final "draft" of my first argument... INTRODUCTION In 1979, President Ronald Reagan wrote that military conscription "rests on the assumption that your kids belong to the state.

That assumption isn't a new one. The Nazis thought it was a great idea." B...

39. Legal age for adulthood should be reduced in the United States.


"A child becomes an adult when he realizes he has a right not only to be right but also to be wrong." Because I agree with these words of Hungarian psychiatrist Thomas Szasz, and because I figured that out before I was 18, I support the resolution, which states: RESOLVED: Legal age for adulthood should be reduced in the United States. Before I begin, I offer the following DEFINITIONS to clarify the round: LEGAL AGE: the age at which a person acquires full legal rights and responsibil...
