Animal testing should be banned!

Sathu

Animals feel just as much pain as humans do. The only difference is that they do not have a voice. Millions of innocent animals such as dogs, cats, rabbits, and many others, die each year due to the gruesome torture of animal testing. Animal testing should be banned for its cruelty, inefficiency, and uselessness. The killing of harmless animals for human testing and research is malevolent. Many multi-product manufacturers, including Johnson & Johnson and Clorox, poison and abuse animals durin...

We should follow the example of Finland's education system.

FranklinDRoosevelt

First round for clarifications, acceptance and opening statements.American (and I might also include French because I have grown up in that educational system) should follow the Finnish example of an education system, that is less homework and testing, shorter schooldays, longer classes and longer holidays.

Racism. Right, or wrong?

thatkidshayy

Racism is wrong because it is an incorrect theory that has caused a lot of evil. We all belong to the human race. The different so called "races" don't actually exist biologically. What we are talking about are the different characteristics within a same race, even if they are occurring within specific geographical spaces. Just like a cat is a cat whether it's a ginger tabby or a tortoise shell or black and white. Having a different sk...

security >> liberty

dairygirl4u2c

it is common, and frankly par for the course, for people to quote many great founders, that say that he who wishes for security over liberty, deserves neither liberty or security. i draw issue. would you rather die, or have your 'rights' compromised? i agree that there is an issue with proportion. frankly, i would guess most people even if they didnt come out and say it, would be for some slight compromises so as not to die. heck, if you put it that way, most would take some major compromise...
