This week, the University of Texas removed four more Confederate statues from its main campus. Some went to their museum, and others were relocated to less prominent places. Part of their statement: "Erected during the...
I see a lot of answers to questions in this section, saying poor people should "make better choices" if they want access to affordable healthcare, and that social programs are for people who are stupid and lazy. When...
Can you really consider yourself Christian if you're not caring for the poor, willing to pay extra taxes for social programs, and supporting for-profit, corporately owned healthcare? How does that work, exactly? "But...
Should access to lifesaving drugs and medical procedures be reserved for those who have the means to pay, or should those things be dispensed equally, without regard for income?
When governments, corporations, and even individuals make choices, should profit be most important, or should they take into account what effect they'll have on people? Do they have a responsibility to ensure they're...
Let's say you wake up tomorrow morning, and are the President of the United States. What is the one issue you would get to work on immediately? Healthcare? Building up the military? Government corruption? What would you...

Every year, on one of my web sites, I ask people to post the one thing they are most thankful for this year. I thought it might be fun to see what my fellow Hubbers are thankful for. So, pick ONE thing, and only one,...
26 state governors are refusing to allow Syrian refugees in their state, despite the fact that 50% of the people fleeing the country are children. These people have lost everything. Should we really refuse the let any...
I've notices a strange phenomenon in the QA: people who ask questions, and then argue with or delete any answers that don't agree with their point of view. I have often left this parting comment on particularly...
Are we obligated to contribute to the society in which we live, by ensuring that all people are fed, educated, have access to health care, and can earn a living wage? Or are we now at a point where it's every person for...
I know most of you who identify as something other than Democrat won't have anything good to say here, so sit this one out. Those of you who are Democrats, knowing what you know right now about the party's candidates,...
September 21st, 2014 is World Gratitude Day. So, post a little gratitude!
In another question, someone commented that atheists are in the majority here at HubPages. Do you think that's true? Do you align yourself with any particular belief system?
