ive only been in policy, not ld, but the main thing I know about ld is that its one person and no partners. also ld is based more on opinion than factual evidence, etc.

i have to stonly disagree with the last poster. Many people argue emerpical arguments in LD debate. It is however more philosophicly based, its basicly like people arguing value kritiks all round. It can be quite fun, however i still prefer policy.

LD debate is based on values and morals. The two sides are the affirmative, argues for the resolution, and the negative, argues against the resolution.

This is the basic structure.

I affirm or negate

The Value is (something) for example, morality

The Criterion is (something) for example, Utilitarianism

(you can sometimes run a role of the ballet or a role of the judge, but you usually don't run that)

Contention 1

Contention 2

Contention 3

Please vote aff or neg

You can also have advantages for the aff, and disadvantages for the neg.

The negative also has Kritiks and counterplans. 

Both sides can run theory.

The structure is, 

A. is the interpretation, this is saying the thing you believe is abusive.

B. is the violation, this is saying your opponent did the thing that's abusive

C. is the standard, this the saying why it is abusive for X, Y, Z reasons.

D. is the voters, this is what you should do to the debater.
