    Should a hard line be taken?

    Should topics which ask for arguments for and against human rights be given a hard line. BAN THEM?! Human rights should be something which are accepted by everybody?

    Example questions, which argue for the validity of the human rights legislation which protects the equality of all human beings.

    I don't think any topic should be banned, ever. What a stupid poll.

    nah, let the discussions rage, they're fun, and occasionally educational, human rights are just another set of rules invented by a governing body, and as such, should be debated as much as any other topic.

    No, if fact it's stupid to do so. Why? It's best to discuss these things, hone arguments, and convince people. Otherwise, there's no point to us being on a debate board.

    Absolutely not.

    Human beings are inherently unequal and human rights are a social construct. These topics should absolutely be up for discussion.

    No, only because the vast majority of people skewer the true definition of the word "right". This entitlement society we live in now has tons of people thinking a lot of things are rights, which they are not.

    Re: Should a hard line be taken?

    I like the though topics.

    I know I get carried away, but that makes then no less enjoyable. I just had a long debate with reff. It got a little out of hand, but all in all it was a good debate and I like the person I was debating with even if I disagreed.

    No way. It is a debate forum.

    If I think a post is out of line I report it. I try very hard not to get out of line.

    Debates can be good, and that is that.

    No way in hell.

    Those topics are the most interesting to discuss.


    And besides, constant examination of tough topics is key to proper understanding of them.
