Ok, I just wanted to know what morals and ethics you hold in issues that are such as controversial.

-No.1, Tell us any type of controversial issue that your interested in.
-No.2 , Tell us your morals regarding the issue.

Important: Its ok to post several duplicates of issues, since we would like to know everyones point of view and their morals.

For example;
-Abortion
- you think its acceptable or not blah blah blah.tell us why.

Alcohol. But then again to try to convince people that it's wrong no matter backup or supporting evidence, you'd probably most likely fail your message through. I don't see why I should start. But that's my opinion. Make it illegal. Ban it from the universe. I don't need any arguments in my opinion. Since it's clear why it should not be allowed. And since I don't care to try, I wont.

I feel the implementation of editing BOTS should be mandatory on all Internet forums lol

In America, it was already banned early in the 20th century for a few years, and all it did was cause more problems than it solved, like a much higher crime rate and the development of organized crime, which caused even more corruption in government and allowed organized crime bosses like Al Capone repeatedly bribe his way out of going to jail. So that is why it is and will always be legal in America and probably every other place where it is legal.

Sure it causes many deaths, crimes, and domestic problems, but arguably making it illegal will make it take even more lives (gang/territory wars between crime bosses), cause even more crimes (crime bosses controlling the government), and cause even more domestic problems (since it is widely consumed and there is a decent chance that making it illegal will increase demand for it ["Forbidden Fruit" theory] then there will probably be more people abusing it)

I wish it could be illegal too, alcohol has nearly ruined my life several times (and I wasn't the one abusing it), but in the end the lesser of two evils is keeping it legal, at least in larger countries. Maybe making it illegal in smaller, more peaceful countries might work.

Yeah, no I don't believe that. That is your opinion. It's been around for hundreds of years. And you ban it for a couple of years? And you suddenly see more death? This is funny. It is not true. My opinion.

Look up the 18th Amendment and Prohibition in America. It's not my opinion that making it illegal caused more problems, it's a fact that at that time making it illegal caused more problems, and that is why it will always be legal even though it might not necessarily cause those same problems again. It's one of those rare scenarios when a government actually learns from its past mistakes.

You can't really say that was cuddlebuns is saying isn't true because what she said wasn't a matter or opinion, it was mere facts. Though the forbidden fruit theory for alcohol would not hold what so ever haha.

I have many contraverisal beliefs, but I guess my most (politically) would be abortion. I think it's murder and should be illegal for all stages of fetal and zygote development. I believe that life begins with conception and should not be ended. That a woman has no right to a life that does not belong to her whether it be dependent on her body or not.
