Should potentially dangerous sports like boxing be banned?
Some people may say fighting sports such as boxing is very dangerous and should be banned, yet I disagree with the idea that potentially dangerous sports should be banned for the following reasons.
First, no matter how dangerous they look and what potential risks they carry, fighting sports are still sports. Sports have rules and as long as they are played according to these rules, I believe there is no need to ban them. All sports more or less entails some degree of risk, thus it is unfair to just blame boxing and similar fighting sports.
Second, fighting sports give many vigorous youth opportunities to sublimate their excess energy. If these potentially dangerous sports were banned, those vigorous youth would not be able to vent their energy, and causing this world to be full of violence.
In conclusion, I strongly believe potentially dangerous sports like boxing should not be banned.
Should Third World debt be forgiven?
It would seem that canceling debt of Third World helps poor countries. However, I believe that forgiving debt will not free those poor nations from poverty. I have some reasons that Third World debt should not be forgiven.
First, I strongly believe that when you borrow something, you must return it to the lender. Cancelling debt is not good for the borrower, because they might take it for granted and become totally dependant on the help of others.
Second, since we are in a world wide economic crisis right now, most of developed countries are suffering severe economic problems and under tight budget constraints, they have little leeway to forgive large sums they have lent to the third world.
Lastly, given the severity of the current situation, third-world debt should be repaid but should be interest-free and extended for an indefinite period. At the same time, developed countries should share their technology and skills with the Third World, rather than just provide financial assistance.
In conclusion, I believe Third World debt should not be forgiven because I think there it is beneficial to neither the Third World nor the developed countries.
