The system of distribution at hand is clearly broken. Its about time we cleanly articulated how and why. The crux of this issuing being the means by which we product and distribute the wealth of out society. I for one believe this should be to each according to his contribution and need. But lets hear a compelling arguement exploiting the labour force.

If you accept this debate, you will argue that Donald Trump's rhetoric towards immigration would be beneficial to the Economy if he were president, and he enacted those policies.

Transgender women have the right to be acknowledged on a societal level however, it must also be acknowledged that they are not biologically female and thus, should not feel entitled to women's-only spaces - that is, bathrooms, sports categories, et cetera. They should not appear in adverts targeted towards women, whether that be advertising clothing or sanitary products.

The debate is about *the desire* that drives the legislation to come into effect, *not the reason* for it to come into effect. i.e. the motive behind the introduction of legislation. Please note in this regard by "desire" I mean the mission (an ambition or purpose that is assumed by a person or group) of NGOs (non-governmental organisations) who lobby for the introduction of such legislation via the creation thereof by a governmental authority.

Gun laws should be less strict and self defense laws looser. Politicians advocating against gun rights shouldn’t be protected with guns bought by the taxpayers they are trying to disarm. Gun rights stem out to many other issues like crime and personal freedom. The founding fathers would be horrified at where we are today and why there are so many laws attacking well-meaning citizens and letting criminals run free on the streets.

In general I find absurd the war on pacifists going on right now, especially in my country (Italy) but also abroad. As a citinzen of a nation that has been fueling the conflict for over a year I debate that the only one who should be targeded are those who want a military resolution of the conflict.
