Philanthropy Should Be Compulsory

David12N
LuciferWept

I want to argue that philanthropy should be compulsory or close to compulsory. A special tax, opt-out charity donations, etc. Five assumptions on why, Not enough money is going to philanthropy. Efforts to significantly increase philanthropy have not been successful. Philanthropy can do good things. {For example, not for profits are better at finding people work than the government}. It is easier to get the money through something like tax than thousands of fundraisers. Italy has a s...

The World Would Be Much Better Without Religion

David12N
byaka2013

I am generally interested in the answer. I have decided to choose Con because I think the world would not be much different than now. I would argue that many of the common reasons cited against religion may not be accurate. I do think there is often strong views held on both sides that do not move the debate forward. I am not arguing that religion never does wrong but that the negative impact on the world may be overly exaggerated and some of the good downplayed or ignored. If you can cite actua...

The Job Guarantee Is A Good Idea.

Capitalistslave

The Job Guarantee would guarantee everyone was offered a job. The government could do this by funding the expansion of the public sector, creating the jobs to do, expanding not for profit employment etc. I currently believe this would be better than things like Job-share, natural private market job creation and the current public system of helping people get work. It might also be cheaper than some other approaches. I am arguing that this should be included in the government's response to un...

Being Religious in America: Does Not Make You More Likely To Commit Crimes.

David12N
Boom1315

Being religious does not {on average} make you more likely to commit crimes in America. If anything, I would argue some aspects of it, probably make it less likely for you to commit crimes. I don't think prisoners citing a religion can be used to prove religion is the cause of crime {in most cases}. I would say there are many more causes behind crime....
