Did I ever say it was funny? no?

 

Oh well you are so right. One day I aspire to be as mature and moral as you are.

 

Did you have to? no?

 

Do tell- why did you post that, if not for shits and giggles? Because you thought it would be a tight aff? That's better. Def.

will someone please explain that to me?

Szaz Kritiks the notion of mental health, the most common form is that mental health as a concept isnt real and is a means to control populations

This thread is ridiculous/racist.

 

I hope you all that are thinking about running something like colonization good lose a LOT of rounds next year...

 

Mental health sounds interesting though. Backfiles anyone?

i have one i could be convinced to scan...over the summer maybe

I thought it would be an interesting idea to debate, though not a particuarly good one.

 

Whatever I accept your moral condemnation of my pathetic immature life.

Yeah, i would agree with you that it should be something critical. Straight up defending killing all the africans will probably be pretty hard to win with.

I'm so excited for the neg rep that someone gave me for my post in this thread. God forbid I suggest a plan that might not be a great idea in a thread called Crazy AFF Plans. This thread should be called "AFF plans (if someone suggest an idea I don't like I'll neg rep you)".

There's a fine line between crazy and genocidal -- you're not coordinated enough to walk it.

It's pretty laughable to me that either would make it a bad argument. This is debate after all and if the evidence exists then why not?

He's asking how Szaz is relevant to the topic at hand.

 

HE?!?!

*fake gasp*

 

i never said i agree with colonization in real life, but I think mental illness' could add an interesting dynamic.

mental healt was my freshman year so i may be slightly wrong, however, Zasz says that mental health doesn't exist and its only used by the government to control the masses which is bad.

 

thats a horrible explanatin but its a start.

Going off what i said earlier in critical affs... how 'bout pan-african socialism/socialist revolutions?

 

Plan: The USFG shall establish a Pan-African Socialist Union. we reserve the right to clarify intent.

 

Base it on the dialectics of third world and advocate some form of dedev, and relate it to socialized medicine, and marxism solves dehum, poverty, racism etc.

theres gonna be a lot of "crazy" affs, probably to the left and the right considering how broad the topic is.

 

imo the best affs are still going to be just democracy and soft power affs.

 

also a lot of AIDS/disease affs, such as continental vaccination/immunization programs (walking link to foucault, but who the fuck cares)

 

i cant really think of many super crazy affs (like colonize africa...wtf), especially any that would actually be advocated. however, im sure camps like Wyoming will put out some weird aff for ppl to kick around.

 

Sounds like a fun topic tho

yeah, youre right, we'll have a lot of fun cutting our public health and dedev Ks, and that crazy demo promo disad again...

 

But I was just looking there's actually of cards on socialized medicine and how it works and on the benefits of African Socialism (mandela, nkrumah, and others just check the wiki on it)

I remember, and this goes way back, under the healthcare topic of '92 or was it '93, a team running "ban fragmentation bullets" as a way to extend universal health coverage to all people in the US...So, I'm thinking under "Public Health" you'll find things like "ban machettes" "Ban small arms" "Demining" etc..all advocated in the literature and fitting under some definitional umbrella.

 

I think the most obivous cases next year, besides the AIDS ones, are cases which lift the 'gag rule" and talk about the reproductive rights of women.

I'm not sure how big the women's abortion case is going to be next year, but I'm sure that some teams will at least have a 1AC for it. I do doubt that we will find too many weapons cases, since they don't link as firmly as the obvious cases like AIDS, and people are tired of debating militant cases from this year, I know I am at least. Getting into some really good moral arguments will be nice for a change, like the 04-05 topic.

hmm, teach abstinence... that could work with a Law of God advantage. Sin is running rampant now due to people passing out condoms --> premarital sex = cultral embrace of an abomination to the Lord, abstinence reduces acceptance of sin --> the church gaining more ground and more salvation from the fires of hell. Those cards shouldn't be too hard to find.

i actually think that next year's resolution should favor mainstream cases and encourage meaningful specific debate at the core of the resolution.

 

given the general impotence of the current national service resolution, i believe many judges are predisposed towards leaning aff on topicality ever so slightly and willing to accept more radical debate cases and aff frameworks accordingly - because their kids probably do much of the same.

 

however, next year, coming up with rational topical plans with significant and farreaching impacts should not be an exercise in futility. as such, the challenge of affirmative maneuvering is replaced by obvious clash and the judge's desire to seek meaningful clash - clash which does not exist this year.

thats kind of untopical, getting away from the Africa idea and talking more about the existence of God, which you would end up having to prove in order to gain your advantages. And you would also have to prove sin is bad - and that would be a big time suck if the Neg team decided to run it. I'm thinking more along the lines of abstinence preventing AIDS, not helping the church
