I'm pretty pathetic...

Recommended Posts

Isn't a generic turn just changing the DA to an advantage? If so, how would that make it a straight turn?

 

no, because without non-uniqueing the DA as well, its not an actual advantage.

 

taking the last example:

U - Federalism high now

L - Plan destroys fed.

MX - Fed prevents Tyranny

 

if you turn the link, it becomes

U - Federalism high now

L - Plan increases fed.

MX - Fed prevents Tyranny

 

here, you're basically only saying "our plan doesn't lead to their impact because we actually increase federalism"

but if you also non-unique it, it becomes

U - Federalism low

L - Plan saves federalism

MX - Fed prevents Tyranny

 

so it becomes an advantage just like one from your case become in the Status Quo, federalism is low and that might cause tyranny, which you then solve.

 

hope that helps

After some searching, I think Derek summed it up the best:

 

Uniqueness would argue that an impact would happen anyway, or that it isn't going to happen at all.

 

A Link turn would say that the affirmative plan solves for the impacts in the DA

 

A straight turn would claim that the aff solves the DA, while the SQ leads to it.

Under Ziegler's definition:

U - Federalism high now

L - Plan jacks fed

MX - Fed sweet, solves cancer

 

The aff impact turns it with federalism leads to extinction. So decreasing federalism is a good thing, solving the DA while the status quo would lead to it (as high federalism leads to extinction).

 

OR

 

The aff link turns it, federalism low now and plan increases fed. The aff solves the DA (increases federalism which solves cancer) while the status quo leads to the bad impacts (not solving cancer).

 

 

All in all, a straight turn is inclusive of a link turn an impact turn.
