About This File

Hello,

 

This file needs no explanation. It's extinction good, 238 pages of it at that. This file has blocks to common responses and even features some cards from 2010. It's based around the philosophy of Arthur Schopenhauer who argues that the pains of existence outweigh its benefits, necessitating the death of all human beings. It's not the cheeriest argument but it's strategic. Dexter High School and Wayne State University have had success using this file. This file has some bang for your buck, but won't make you happy if you're having a bad day.

 

Here's the index:

My name's Jacob Justice. I'm a 3rd year debater for Wayne State University, where I've broke and won speaker awards at multiple regional tournaments. I debated 2 years in high school for Dexter High School in Michigan. I'm currently a coach for West Bloomfield High School and last year I coached Brother Rice High School at the TOC.

 

Happy debating,

 

Jake
