are books only consumed by the rich?

Manoo

The Brazilian Federal Revenue said that "only the rich buy books", And proposes to increase taxes on books.

A society where people are ignorant and lack knowledge is easier to be controlled by the powerful. The books? Books are an inexhaustible source of knowledge, Knowledge that takes thousands of...

"When students cheat on exams, It"s because our school system values grades more than students value learning, " stated Neil deGrasse Tyson according to an article on vernoisnews. Com. I am debating that grades in school should be abolished. My first reason is this will cut back on cheating. If there's no grades, Students would not feel tempted to cheat as it wouldn't be necessary. My second reason is this will not make parents angry at their children. If you don't have an A on your repo...

In order to have a safer learning and safety environment, Surveillance cameras should be placed in all classrooms. Students and teachers are more likely to act properly if they are aware that they are being monitored. Students will also be protected by cameras so they will provide evidence if anything unusual happens....

Derek Chauvin, A true chauvinistic pig, Shares the same character traits as the god of the bible, In which case the god of the bible according to the print is also a true chauvinistic pig. Now I'm not going to educate you on the slob who Derek Chauvin is as that's not my place nor problem. So no, You do not get to use typical word salad as an excuse for whatever menagerie ideals that will not work. The same is true as for the god of the bible. I'm not here to educate you on whatever it is to you...

In general, Are debate. Org users "intelligent minds from around the world"?

ThinkCritically
GreatClickbait

I am new to debate. Org. My position is based only on the fact that anybody in the world can sign up and start debating, Or voting, Etc. There are no qualifications required. It is also my opinion that intelligent people generally do not spend a lot of time engaging in debates online, Where the environment is not well suited for it, Since users do not feel very accountable because of anonymity, And too often just say and make arguments that are not well thought out, And/or are very biased. I...
