* * * * - 5 Votes



"The Allegory of the Squirrel" combines folklore, fables, The Onion, and many other non-traditional debate positions to create a unique negative argument unlike anything else that has ever been deployed in debate. This is not some cheap, WGLF knock-off, this is a completely new way of using satire, on the cutting edge of how critique is deployed in high-level college debate.

 

This file is absolutely NOT just a collection of random song lyrics, stories, and onion cards. It is actually a rather robust critical position about communication models and speech acts within civil society. Additionally, there is a large set of semi-generic critical positions that dovetail nicely with the central thesis of the communication scholarship arguments. In total, the file is 161 pages and has 2NC blocks for all relevant positions. Nearly every card is highlighted, and blocks are battle ready.

 

If you have ever wanted to deploy a strong, difficult to answer, non-traditional negative strategy, this is the file for you. The file includes an explanation of the files components, and is ready for rounds right off the shelf.
