Debate Topics and Schedule 2013

Topics

  1. Race Relations and Justice – does our justice system treat everyone equally?
  2. The ethics of global vs national policy – should the USA focus first and foremost on internal goals, or consider the needs of the larger world equally? Consider the fairness of Natural Resource utilization, consumption, and distribution.
  3. Capitalism – Which makes more sense – economics where the wealth of a fraction that live extravagantly “trickles down” to create job opportunities for those below, or a world where the economic differentiation is more limited, and economic differentiation is limited.
  4. Terrorism and allocation of national resources. Does the treat of terrorism justify the trillions spend to mitigate it, considering other needs nationally and internationally (education, energy, climate change, poverty and hunger)
  5. Global Politics and aid – is it right for the USA to stipulate moral or cultural requirements for a country to receive aid.
    Same Sex Unions – should they be legal?
