This disad, sometimes ran as a kritik, argues that the service nature of the plan is coercive. This can occur in a couple of different ways, such as taxing the taxpayer for programs that are not voted on, requring service for no material gain, creating a collectivist mindset (i.e., social welfare), and so on. Also known as "objectivism," this position argues that an individual's propery is not only key to their happiness, but also to their dignity and self worth. The plan, then, undermines this notion of individualism for a broader, societal impact. The disad argues that utilitarianism is bunk, and notions of individualism are key to protect rights and to prevent larger-scale violence, including wars fostered by totalitarianism and fascism. The position also includes must-have affirmative answers.
