About This File
This file is a collection of a few things:
- Kritik framework updates and answers to basic alternative takeouts. Along with basic impact framing/prioritization args, I've included a number of pretty strong cards that should cover you on alt defense in the block, as well as a few pieces of external offense for controlling truth-claims and the like. I also threw in a handful of specific critical indicts of the Pinker study concerning rates of violence that people read as impact uniqueness against the K in the 2AC. These cards are almost all relatively new (i.e. published since last summer's camp evidence output) and should be compatible with most Ks.
- K Aff answers to some of the 1NC framework args that have gained prominence in the last few years. Specific emphasis is placed on defending against agonism- and deliberative democracy-based offense. These cards are older, but still quite good, and to my knowledge, most of them haven't been read in high school or college debate yet.
- Some recent links to China and global warming impacts - because you need to stop reading those tired old Pan cards.
If you go for the K with any regularity on the aff or on the neg, new and recent points of offense can often be the difference between victory and defeat against well-prepared teams - this file will help catch your opponents off-guard with new ways to indict their stale defenses of traditional policymaking.

I debated in high school and college for eight years. This fall, I'll be a policy debate coach at the University of Puget Sound. I also am an assistant policy debate coach at Bingham High School, where I have coached multiple teams to acquiring TOC bids.
