I think that Greta Thunberg is being taken advantage of by her parents to preach this message. She has Aspergers, which is a mental disorder. She has shown time and time again that she doesn't really truly know what she's talking about, it's just the media trying to push their agenda.

The leader of my country is disgustingly ignorant of climate change and the tireless work that Greta Thunberg does compared to him. Some of the thoughtless things he's said to include that she's creating "needless anxiety" and that we should “let teenagers be teenagers,” and as a heartless and thoughtless stunt brang a LUMP OF COAL into the Australian Parliament.

I think that God is just an invention of humans to reassure themselves. But it's not a "good" or a "bad" thing : if this belief can help them, all is okay ! For me, there is only a problem when somebody want to impose his "god" to others because for him he is the "best". Sometimes, this behavior leads to "just" disputes but unfortunately, it can lead to wars… But the "problem" is more deep : it's the urge to always be right… An other debate ^^

Believe in god, it's just a feeling; but what happiness and love he can bring to you !!!!!
I know, it seems a little weird but I promise that : it is real.

Hi Anakin! Your question is a very controversial one. A lot of people all over the world believe in different things to the point where there is no right answer. We do not know if any Gods are real from a scientific point of view. However, some people believe that God is very much real, and that is okay. Religion and believing in a god is a guide for people to be nice and live happily. For the people who don't believe, that is okay too. It's up to you whether you want to believe in a God or not. I hope this helps.

The Scottish province history of Britannia (Great Britain) and the fact that it is culturally different from England is true.
Nevertheless, it is doubtful whether Scotland will be able to successfully become self-reliant when it comes to the benefits and damages it would have if it were fully independent of international affairs ...
Would not it be better to have more local authority and autonomy?

The Scottish Parliament already enjoys primary legislative powers so Scotland has already been granted a lot of independent decision-making, enabling policies such as the elimination of university tuition fees. Brexit surely has created issues as Scotland voted differently from the rest, but it’s unsure whether there would be a second referendum and whether Brexit would be carried out. Independence was rejected in the 2014 referendum, and if there’s another referendum it will lead to even more chaos and divisions. Scotland would lose its social-economic status in the world if it breaks free from the rest of the UK.

Hi, Régine. :)

I'm so sorry you had to go through this.

No one should have to feel as though they are second best. Your boyfriend should treat you as though you are the most beautiful woman in the world. He should treat you like a princess -- and never compare you to other women -- especially someone like your own mother.

I had something similar in my life recently. Hence, I had to end a relationship of almost 7 years.

I'm so glad that you found your own answer.

Many blessings,

Although men are the more dominant sex and portray as the stronger and braver gender. You have to remember that just because they don't look like their physically hurting they may be suffering from things like depression, anxiety an eating disorder, and for younger boys, bullying. The fact that women are designed to carry a child for 9 months and birth it doesn't deny the fact that men don't hurt mentally. Even though abuse is more common for a woman to experience doesn't mean they don't experience it either.

Hi Asta!

I agree that your suggested method for dealing with robbers is much more peaceful than the method chosen by the jeweler and far more desirable because it would not result in death. However, neither of us no the circumstances of the robbery or what threats the robber made against the jeweler. It is very likely that the robber threatened to kill the jeweler if he did not hand over his goods. In that case, the action that the jeweler took is certainly justifiable as self defense. Maybe the robber tried to kill the jeweler first just to make it easier to take what he wanted.

Using lethal force should always be a last resort, but it is necessary in some circumstances. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,

Abram Leyzorek

So, the law is there so that we don't decide what is rigth or wrong ourselves. The robber was there, not to kill the man, but to steal. The man should have given the robber what he wanted, waited to he left and then called the police. He would probably had had his stuff back and the robber would probably had gone to prison, but it would have been by the law. If we just start to kill each other, by proclaiming our own rigth and wrong, society will collaps into anarchy.

Bonjour Laura!

The robber was making threats on the jeweler's life; Was the jeweler to wait till he was killed? It was probably not the jeweler's intention to kill the burglar, incapacitation would have been sufficient to protect himself and his goods. But if the jeweler had intended to kill, then he is at fault because thievery does not carry the death penalty nor is it justifiable to take a life only to defend possessions. However, the burglar did wield a knife and it is easy to imagine how the jeweler may have feared for his life and taken measures to neutralize the threat.

Is that what they teach you in France, that it is wrong for an individual to take initiative and do what is right? Must it be a government institution decides what is right, acts as the sole instrument of justice? What the founders of the United States held was that the true legitimacy of the law comes from God, not from the government. And government institutions are (1) made up of people and (2) not above ordinary citizens in interpreting God's law. They laid upon ordinary individuals great responsibility in keeping order and preventing tyranny by affording the right to keep and bear arms and reemphasizing their God-given rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness.

Christianity has influenced many man-made legal systems around the world, and in almost all of them violent actions that would otherwise be considered crimes are justified in the context of self defense when (1) the threat to life is imminent and (2) the fear of harm is reasonable. In this situation, the defender may take violent actions proportional to the level of threat to defend himself or other people. I am confident that this is the rule in France as well.

It is, however, up to the court to decide whether or not the danger was imminent and whether or not his response was proportional to the threat. There is also a doctrine called imperfect self defense which applies when the latter criterion is not met, i.e. the person had an irrational fear for their life. In this situation the person will still be charged with a crime, but the sentence will be less severe.

What do you think? And thanks for your input!

Some people say "don't tell me, show me." Well, the United Sates of America stands with Israel, and I think that we have proven just that. Shifting the U.S. embassy from the Mediterranean metropolis of Tel Aviv, to the religious hub of Jerusalem, was an overdue promise. Every U.S. president, from H.W. Bush, Clinton, Bush and Obama, had given their word to place the embassy in the Jerusalem, Israel. Yet for some reason or another, every six months, extensions were signed, crippling that expectation. During his first year of being in office, President Trump publicly acknowledged Jerusalem, as Israel's rightful, capital city. Within only five months later, he has done what others had procrastinated to do in two decades! I commend the United States and President Trump, for not only approving of the relocation, but for it bringing into physical manifestation.

Over 35,000 Palestinians and protesters, lined the Israeli border, rioting and trying to break through the border. Like most any other nation would do if on the precipice of invasion or massacre, Israel set up a line of defense. I don't understand why, sympathy, and attention was given to the Palestinian side, as though Israel was in the wrong. Sixty-two lives, is the death toll from violent protest in the Palestinian's "March of Return". At least fifty of the people, were from Hamas. Though the loss of life is lamentable, Israel did not intentionally kill innocent people, only defend their territory.

Tension has always been in the Middle East. Hatred is what many people thrive on. Death and threats are a daily part of living. The Palestinians were just pitching a hissy fit. Summer has just started and temperatures are rising. Hopefully soon things will balance out, and possible solutions be found.

ok. fine.
You don't have an open mind, and no matter how much common sense I throw at you-you don't want to accept the fact that using birth control and having abortions IS considered killing. And it is NOT a woman's right to use birth control or have a abortion.
Think of it this way...abortion is legal, (yes I understand that this debate is about whether or not birth control and abortion should be spread in the third world. (which it should not) but that doesn't mean it's legal.
Let's put it another way, let's say, that...stealing was legal. Just because it's legal doesn't mean it's right. It's the same way with abortion and birth control.

I see no point in arguing with you about this, as you don't seem to be accepting the fact that it's just wrong.

I understand. But in poor countries having many children is as well a danger for women who are not helped and don't have medical assistance and the fact that they are often too young increases high risks for their health and life. And they are the more often muslims. So they are sold, married young without their agreement, and the explosion of demography has often the aim to invade Occident. Islam is a religion of expantion and usually don't respect their rights. Muslim children MAY reproduce the same and I bet they will increase more and more and maybe one day they will be very very numerous. Europe America Asia are not their territory. They have a continent : Africa.

I think whether have a child or not depends on himself.It is against people's freedom and right to force them to have a child or not.In China,the government used to force people to have only one child.If you have more than one child,you'll be fined.If the only child lose his life when he grows up,his parents are too old to have another child,his family will lose their hope.The government don't give parents enough money,if they lose their ability to work,if they get ill,no one can take care of them or raise them till their death.Anyway,I do think parents should try their best to avoid their children behave badly.

First of all, children do not need to go to a public school. They can be taught what they need to know by their parents.
Secondly, children don't need THINGS to be happy. In the 1800's it was rare that children had toys. They can easily live without them and be happy.

If your homeless or VERY VERY VERY poor and have a child/children, you can give him/her/them up for adoption if absolutely necessary. But you do not need to murder it.

Numerous children are a problem for poor famillies who don't have enough money to send them to school, to feed them normally and to give them stuff which would be necessary for a happy life. They are assisted, and often have a behaviour of profitors when they come in Europe. But fortunatelly it is not always like that.

Society - "Censorship"

Dear debaters,

I have heard a proposal to "supprime," delete in English, the thread on either guns prohibition or Islam (it's unclear which), both important issues. I understand that some issues are sensitive and people would rather not talk about them just because they are distressing. Ignoring issues, however, will produce a far more grievous outcome and a more long-lasting period of hardship than the brief comfort allowed by a moment of blissful ignorance.

I encourage everyone to be patient, be polite, and have fortitude. If we strive toward these qualities in our discourse, then we will avoid discomfort while we share our opinions.

I hope there is no one here who will argue for censorship; this thread is only intended as a gentle nudge in the right direction, and not an invitation for debate.

I hope my message is not repugnant in that it sounds condescending; by no means does it imply that I embody the qualities that I am advocating for or that I am any better than anyone else. That is self-evidently false and arrogant.

Thank you!

I don’t see it as censorship. This is a child friendly site with kids younger than 10, this is not a political website meant and made for adults who actually understand what’s going on. I’m anti-gun so I’d rather not see post about them anyways. As well, lots of countries don’t even have gun laws and their citizens aren’t allowed to have them. Why would they care? They should ban post about guns, they have a right to as well, and I think, if anything, they should monitor posts about Islam. There are a lot of hateful people on the internet with nothing better to do than harass the Islamic faith. It’s not censorship.

Bonjour Nicolas!

I agree completely! I would elect you if you ran for office in my country! Almost any random, sober minded citizen would do a better job than our current officials.

Thanks for your thoughts!

Well, I don't like to tell about my own opinions. But this is what I think personally:

- Religion can bring both the worst and the best; it just dépends on people's mind.

- If I was a politic leader, I would stop wars and looting of poor countries. We should help poor countries to exploit themselves their own wealth (mineral resources, human ressources, renewable energy...), instead of just sending small amounts of money. They don't need begging ; just peace, respect and smart communication. Then, they will be able to grow, and poor people will be able to survive without having to leave their country.
