Most people as of today herald the United States Democratic-Capitalism Government to be the best form of government as of today. Are there better forms of government out there? Can their be improvements to the above stated system to make it better? What Improvements? What radical new types of government can be Proposed? What else is there?
Political issues surrounding politcal parties throughout history and even today Politicians have been seen to change what they think is right and wrong to what the majority thinks or what will get them the most votes and keep them in power. Obama and the Modern Democratic party are a good example of this, though both the Democratic and Republican parties and their roots are guilty of gripping onto their power. Is this universally acceptable for all politicians or at least most?
Andrew Jackson is a figurehead generally upheld in modern society. He increased the size of the United States during his presidency and is also the Strategic Genius behind the victory at New Orleans during the War of 1812. Hes also on the back of the American Ten Dollar Bill and is heralded as the creator, one way or another, of the Modern Democratic Political Party in America. However, he caused much of the economic Turmoil that exists up to even today and destroyed the Credit Framework of America and the American System Set up by many a president before him. He is also disclaimed for his many acts disregarding the US Constitution and acting on whim. Whats your take on the historical figure?
Africa is a continent that enjoys a grand wealth of resources that are in high demand by the rest of the world. However, much of the continent, primarily the Saharian states, have done nothing but rebel against those who attempt to harvest this wealth yet Africa makes no move to dignify itself nor to remove us entirely from their soil. The continent for the most part has failed in an evolutionary sense in that much of the expanded middle area is still inhabited entirely by nomads and desacretes. Has Africa proven itself incapable of development beyond what it holds today? Another question to ask is, should something be done about it?
I recently realized that most of my own childhood was plauged by paranoia over the future and what my parents would do to me if I failed. All of my associates that have turned out rather well also held an element of paranoia in their childhood. Although I may be promoting myself rather blatantly, its still a question I pose. Can Paranoia be used as an Effective Method for Child upbringing that solidifies a good moral and philosophical base for them throughout life?
People in the world consistently argue against the slaughter of animals for consumption or production, but they themselves often discriminate against other people in their own Genus, Humanity. It is often said that we are superior animals to all others on our planet (you never know) because we are self-Aware and far more versatile than all other animals. Does that make it okay to discriminate against the animals that are not human because of exactly that?
I asked a friend this exact question recently and he came up with the answer of Fear. I came up with the answer of the Promise of Tomorrow. He said fear, being rather self-explanatroy since its an emotion felt by everyone, will prevent people from doing what you dont want them to do, but that it should only be used by the wise. I agreed, but put forth the argument that Fear as a weapon strips people of their free will and also discourages Human development, whether that be in science or sociology, and that the Promise of Tomorrow combined with History and its correct interpretations is something that controls itself because it is controlled by the people who already know the consequences rather than a select elite few. Which is the more legitimate weapon for maintaining Peace?
Ive always had an infatuation with Nuclear energy. Its so clean and viable once you get past the misinterpretations that surround it. By current estimations, Nuclear power could be shrunk down to the size of a Car Battery by the end of the century if Public opinion would allow its development. But there are way too many arguments against it, Right? Terrorism is the one that gets everyone. We dont want Nuclear Material waltzing around with malicious figures now do we? But just think of the applications once you drop the security part; Theyre Endless! Whats your stance on the topic?
Absolute Nuclear disarmament will lead to New Warhead designs or better Machine weapons?
Under the assumed Absolute Disarmament of Nuclear Weapons for all States of the Earth, what would happen next for Warfare? New Warhead Designs for the missiles you already have or the deployment of new Machine weapons and military strategies?
It is one of the most commonly debated topics of the otaku community, and has been so for the past 3 years. The "Death" of Lelouch vi Britannia is rather questionable, even though the series creators at Sunshine themselves have stated that Lelouch is dead. There is an infinite number of arguments as to why this is, and isnt, true. Now, I hope that you all will act with the utmost respect for each other as you debate this point, but feel free to throw out the most obscure of theories, as they are often the msot useful in the end.
