Winning Position: When did "agenda" become a bad word?
When did "agenda" become a bad word?
Are people trying to turn the word "agenda" into a bad word? Every time I here someone from the right say the phrase" liberal agenda" or " gay agenda" I think they are trying to make "agenda" sound sinister. Having an agenda just means that you have a list of things to do. This mite just be me, but I don't find a wedding cake with two grooms on it all that sinister. But the right acts like gay people want to brake in their house and marry their 8 year old son to 49 year old paedophile. Liberals just want to make sure people of all religions, political parties, sexual orientations, and nationalities won't be discriminated against. But the second someone says " agenda" after the word " liberal " then people start imagining the Soviet tanks rolling in.Why are people acting like a bunch of paranoid schizophrenics?
Tied Positions: Pretty much the same vs. Peasant revolts in Russia
Peasant revolts in Russia
Let's imagine what the world would look like if certain events in history had ended differently than they did.
I'd like this debate to work like this: Someone posts a comment about an event, suggesting a different outcome and their ideas of how things might be different, then whoever wants to can post their ideas about it. Someone else posts a comment about a different event, and people comment, etc...
This idea was inspired by a Russian history class and The Watchmen(I haven't actually seen the movie; I have a comic book nerd friend who told me the basic storyline. x]).
