Argumentative Speech Topics

Here is a list of argumentative speech topics. Some are new for 2011. These are great for developing arguments for debate, public speaking, rhetoric, persuasive speech and argumentation.

Some will be duplicated due to the nature of the topics. Some have been deleted due to the sensitivity of the topics. For instance, although guns could make a lively discussion, if you or your family have been affected in one way or another, the topic could be a reminder of painful memories.

With so many topics and new issues facing us as humans, why not use argumentation for something fresh?
