A2 Securitization K: Evidence

Recommended Posts

Can people just compile and load as many answers to securitization, such as realism, they can find in any of their backfiles or otherwise?


We're compiling a bunch of evidence at ADI and we're calling on the debate world to help out lol


Here's some things it could fit:

realism true/good

alternatives to realism fail

discourse focus bad

threats real

self-fulfilling prophecy false

violence inevitable

security inevitable

otherization inevitable

biopower inevitable

totalizing security bad

defensive realism solves

pragmatic change good

permutations solve


Thanks All. No explanation necessary just post em up.

Great list....I would probably add these 8 to the list....


• fear good

• fearing the bomb is good

• scenario planning good/prediction good

• reps of nuclear war good (UTD runs a really sweet one)

• biopower good (Dickenson???) its been run since the "detain w/o charge topic"

• reclaim biopower (Campbell)

• debates of representation kills K + democracy (Butler)

• AT: Dillion/Value to life

value to life....but there are many others including arguments about euthanasia
