Default Which controversial topic is most important to you?

Out of every controversial thing that exists on the very planet Earth, what thing do you worry about the most?

To me, it'd have to be the topic of animal rights/welfare

Possibly abortion (pro life), although capitalism vs socialism (capitalism wins) and animal rights/welfare (welfare by a long shot) rank high, too.

Most likely the humanistic problems such as racism, sexism, and exploitation of people. Something like capitalism vs. socialism (both suck, somewhere in the middle is probably the best solution) would fall into that category.

For me, it's a tie between consumerism and globalization. Okay, so neither issue are as controversial as I'd like , but I'm sticking to my guns.

Oh my. Well... I don't know. The global warming conspiracy (yes, it's a conspiracy), sexism/racism/ageism, and animal rights are rather controversial... I don't know how the global warming conspiracy is handled in other countries, but I know that the several -isms and animal rights are very hard topics. White men used to be the most powerful, and all of a sudden, the new vogue is being a black woman (no offense to any race group). Now with the animal rights laws coming out across the globe, animals are more heavily protected than humans are.

How do you figure animals are more protected than humans?

I'll guess general lack of belief about medicine, dragging of morality into science, doubting of scientific methods to prove things out of sheer randomness (Carbon dating) womens rights..

Global warming's a conspiracy? Rofl, you've outdone yourself this time Geoffrey. Care to explain it? xD

Probably environmentalism, just because I find it hard to see how, at the rate we're going, the planet is going to hold up in 100 years or so; the next generation is pretty much screwed. :/

I have a deep interest in a lot of controversial topics, however due to a number of people close to me and the way it affects them I would have to say gay rights are first and foremost.

Everything is a controversial topic to me. There isn't something of greater importance.
  • Racism
  • Abortion
  • Gay rights
  • Death penalty
  • Illegal immigration into the U.S.
  • First world vs. third world
  • New world order conspiracy
  • The list could go on...

I'm a very opinionated person, so of course I feel strongly about a lot of controversial issues...

- Religion vs Science
- Abortion
- Gay rights / acceptance
- Global warming (or lack thereof)
- Death penalty

There are many more, but there's a list in order for you. :)
