Thus we offer the following plan: The USFG should substantially increase its pha to Rwanda by giving reparations to improve mental health care.

 

Advantages Moral Obligation and PTSD

Topicality

 

Mental health care is not public health. It's private health. Mental health problems are not communicable diseases either.

 

Other options:

Someone said Mental Health K. That's a maybe but not something as predictable as fuko. Check your mental health topic backfills which are probably chock full of good args. I don't remember the year but from this year back the topics were Africa, National Service, Civil Liberties, UN Peacekeeping, Oceans, Mental Health.

Well first of all, there is topicality to consider.

T on SSA- Rwanda is not all of SSA

T on public- Mental health care is a very specialized area of health care and public needs to be available to ALL people, not only those with mental health issues.

Next, what kind of Solvency do they have? Kinda hard to tell how to hit Solvency without Solvency tags.

Finally, you can go with any of the multitude of Generic DA's out there or CP's for that matter.

AU cp with dev K as net ben and maybe politics. with T mental health is not PHA and T ssa is not rwanda. then drop whichever T they cover most in the 2ac and have the 1NR face-crush them with the other one. and 2NC can take cp and net ben(s)

topicality of public health (i see that's been mentioned already)

 

some generic disads, malthus, fiscal discipline, etc.

 

and at least one kritik, probably biopower, disaster porn (it's my personal favorite), or eurocentrism

Heh, to above, this is one of the few Malthus doesn't link to, I believe...it's mental health, after all. Heck, the abusive specificity of that aff means it probably doesn't link too well to a lot of disads, not as well as spending money on all of SSA would. Maybe not dporn either; the harms may not be depictions of people dying, just living really unhappy and traumatizing lives. For all you know, they might k disads with death reps; it's a really squirrely plan without very policy-like, overblown harms; they probably use similar unique tactics to hit back at big-impact disads.

 

Whatever you run, make sure to answer moral obligations...it sucks to get your disads smacked all over your face with responsibility to the other. =) I think a couple camps put out specific answers; UNT I know did, then Iowa or some other random camp I think. Sometimes util isn't responsive enough.

a team with an aff like this will have a K of your T shell that excludes mental health assistance. not that you should run in fear or anything, but be ready for it.

Topicality

 

Mental health care is not public health. It's private health. Mental health problems are not communicable diseases either.

 

 

 

That's such a terrible argument. In no way do the words "public health," imply physical or mental. And to extrapolate that they must be a. diseases and b. communicable diseases in order to qualify as a public health issue seems a bit of a stretch as well. But, it's debatable.

 

Topicality of public health (i see that's been mentioned already)

 

some generic disads, malthus, fiscal discipline, etc.

 

and at least one kritik, probably biopower, disaster porn (it's my personal favorite), or eurocentrism

 

All of those kritik examples will most likely link to the da's.

 

I also doubt that Malthus will link to MO or PTSD adv's.

 

AU cp with dev K as net ben and maybe politics. with T mental health is not PHA and T ssa is not rwanda. then drop whichever T they cover most in the 2ac and have the 1NR face-crush them with the other one. and 2NC can take cp and net ben(s)

 

Why specifically the AU cp, that just one of your fav's?

 

And I wouldn't bank on that intentionally abusive T strat.

 

------------------------

 

As for my advice, it really depends on what the mo is.

 

BUT.. i'd turn the moral obligation/case with some sort of give reparations to victims of U.S. slavery CP with some racism, colonialism, chomsky, who knows. Seems easily outweighed if not straight turned from a plethora of angles. How would U.S. citizens feel about the USFG granting funding for reparation of suffering that they didn't necessarily, or at least directly cause..
