There are many crimes against humanity that America committed, here is a small list
1.) Testing the effects of radiation on soldiers, like injecting uranium pellets into sailors.
2.) Giving syphilis to unknowing people to test treatments and cures.
3.) The so called 'black sites' which violate the laws of war.
4.) Most likely quite a few things done by the Special Activities Division (SAD).
There are others, so should America be pardoned (as they have reasons for doing so) or should they not?
Should Attacks in Political Advertisements (Vote for me...) of the Ad Hominem type be made illegal?
More directly should political advertisements focus only on platform and policy rather than personal qualities?
(Non-theism not an option)
In order for this debate to get started we must assume a few things.
1.) One religion is correct
2.) God(s)/ Deities will respond to those who give them joy with reward.
3.) Prayer directed at them as demanded in holy scripture gives that religion's god(s) joy.
4.) God(s) are all powerful.
5.) If in joy, (a) god(s) will help you.
The idea is that only one religion is correct, you don't know which one it is, and you have to please this/these god(s) in order to get something you need.
It seems that god(s) has/have punished sinners for little reason at all, as god(s) has/have the power to get whatever they want (such as all humanity follows their demands). However that is not as fun as watching humanity struggle to learn on their own. With the occasional punishment on sinners, for joy (see Schadenfreude).
Now we get to where, let's say that you NEED (a) god pleased to get help for some immense task. You don't know which religion to follow, so it is highly likely you are a sinner. So why not punish yourself with pain, rather than pray to whatever religion's doctrine you think is correct. As you would by chance be more likely to appease whatever god(s) that is/are in power.
So is pain or prayer to your chosen religion a better tactic to get what you NEED?
I am quite curious of other peoples thoughts on these subjects. You can answer as many of these as you want, the first one I am most curious about.
What do you think of prisoners being forced to
Give blood or organs for the community
Be given medical care
Fight in arenas for their freedom, or die (People would pay to watch, give the economy a boost)
Be participants on either a game show or reality show (against consent, read above)
Best of luck Debaters!
This is simplistic, I am looking for people's preferred types of government (except representative democracy, republic, I want to see new things here) and then list the pros of such a one, and how it would be created (possibly where it would be, your choice). Then I would like people to list the flaws in such a government, until we get to the unique ideas for government flowing so that I have more material for a book I'm writing (on government).
Please be creative, and please be kind.

Why hello there!
This is simple, what is the best (as in quickly, and stable) way for a nation to become a superpower? (one only per post, I want a debate here)
Making cheap plastic stuff for the current superpowers (AKA economically)
