This is texas BS, i couldn't find a BW.

 

CONTENTION ONE: THE CAMP

 

WE BEGIN WITH GLIMPSE INSIDE THE WALLS OF A FACTORY FARM WHERE BILLIONS OF ANIMALS ARE CONDEMNED TO LIVES FILLED WITH NOTHING BUT SUFFERING AND TORTURE.

 

Farm Sanctuary, 2008 (“Factory Farming”, http://www.farmsanctuary.org/issues/factoryfarming/, the card is the combined articles on eggs, pork, beef, dairy, and poultry)

 

“There are approximately… diseases, and cancer.”

 

THESE HORRORS DO NOT OCCUR IN ISOLATION BUT RATHER ARE PART AND PARCEL OF THE LARGER INSTITUTION OF CONTEMPORARY GLOBAL BIOPOLITICS - VAST MECHANISMS OF SURVEILLNCE AND MANAGEMENT ARE EXERTED OVER COUNTLESS ANIMALS WITHIN FACTORY FARMS, SUCH AS THE BATTERY HEN, IN AN EFFORT TO MAXIMIZE FOOD PRODUCTION – THIS IS A RESULT OF HUMAN SOCIETY BEING UNWILLING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT FIRST AND FOREMOST THE CATEGORY OF THE HUMAN IS IN A STATE OF CONSTANT FLUX AND THAT SECONDLY ALL HUMANS CONTAIN WITHIN THEM A FORM OF ANIMALITY. BY CLOSING OURSELVES OFF TO THESE POSSIBILITIES WE CREATE WAYS TO DISTANCE OURSELVES FROM ANIMALS - THE RESULT IS THE CREATION OF BARE LIFE WHICH MAKES THINGS SUCH AS DEATH MEANINGLESS BECAUSE SUBJECTS ARE FORCED INTO THE REALM OF THE LIVING DEAD.

 

DINESH, 2 (Joseph W., doctorate candidate @ Univ. of Western Sydney, “Cows and Sovereignty”, Borderlands, 1:2)

 

“Five hundred police… an eternal Treblinka"”

 

OUR CONTENTION IS BECAUSE THE CATEGORY OF HUMAN IS IN THIS STATE OF FLUX IT IS ULTIMATELY A FICTION, HOWEVER RATHER THAT RECOGNIZING THIS TRUTH WE CONTINUE TO SEARCH FOR THE MISSING LINK WHICH NECESSITATES THE CREATION OF THE CATEGORY OF THE SUB-HUMAN. IT IS THIS CEASELESS STRUGGLE OVER THE CONSTITUTION OF THE HUMAN THAT PROVIDES AN ETHICAL LOOPHOLE FOR VIOLENCE BY ALLOWING US TO JUSTIFY OUR ACTIONS BECAUSE WE CAN ALWAYS SAY OUR VICTIMS ARE NOT HUMAN AND THEREFORE NOT AFFORDED THE SAME PROTECTIONS. ONLY A POLITICAL PROJECT, WHICH SEEKS TO INTEROGATE THE CATEGORY OF THE HUMAN, ANTD ITS RELATIONSHIP TO ITS OWN ANIMALITY CAN RESCUE US FROM THE BIOPOLITICS OF THE STATUS QUO.

 

DINESH, 4 (Joseph W., doctorate candidate @ Univ. of Western Sydney, “Animal by Any Other Name? Patterson and Agamben Discuss Animal (and Human) Life”, Borderlands, 3:1

 

“14. It is perhaps… humanity or animal”

 

CONTINUING TO UPHOLD THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN HUMAN AND ANIMAL HAS DISASTOROUS CONSEQUENCES FOR ENTITIES ALL OVER THE GLOBE – THE IMPULSE TO DOMINATE AND CONTORL ALL ‘LOWER BEINGS’ MANIFESTS ITSELF AS AN ABSOLUTE FAITH THAT REASON CAN, WILL, AND MUST TRIUMPH OVER THE DISORDERED NATURAL WORLD; THIS RIGID AND VIOLENT ORIENTATION DOOMS EVERY BEING EXTERMINATION.

 

MBEMBE, 3 (Achille, “Necropolitics”, Public Culture 15(1): 11–40)

 

“This essay assumes… life and death.”

 

PLAN: THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD ELIMINATE ALL OF THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT’S DOMESTIC SUBSIDIES FOR CONCENTRATED ANIMAL FEEDING OPERATIONS.

 

ELIMINATING SUBSIDIES IS NECESSARY TO ELIMINATE CAFOS

 

Gurian-Sherman, 2008 (Doug, April, senior scientist in the USC food and enviro program, PhD from Berkeley, EPA health assessor for biotechnology and FDA advisor for food biotechnology, “CAFOs Uncovered: The Untold costs of Confined Animal Feeding Operations”, the Union of Concerned Scientists for Environment Solutions, http://www.ucsusa.org)

 

“Systems that are… communities than CAFOs”

 

VOTING AFF REPRESENTS MORE THAN JUST AN AFFIRMATION OF A CONSEQUENTIAL POLTICAL ACTION – AN AFF BALLOT REPRESENTS A STRATEGIC INTERVENTION AIMED AT MAINTAINING THE CATEGORY OF THE HUMAN AS OPEN - WE RECOGNIZE THAT SAID CATEGORY IS A FICTION AND IT ONLY ACQUIRES A STABLE MEANING VIA ITS RELATION WITH ITS OPPISOTE IE THE CATEGORY OF THE ANIMAL. THEREFORE VOTING AFF REPRESENTS AN IDENTIFICATION WITH OUR OWN ANIMALITY WHICH IS CRUCIAL TO INTERRUPT THE PROCESS OF CONSTANT DEFERRAL ONLY AN SUCH AS THIS DISALLOWS NOT ONLY ANIMAL SUFFERING BUT SOVERIEGN VIOLENCE AS WELL.

 

DINESH, 2 (Joseph W., doctorate candidate @ Univ. of Western Sydney, “Cows and Sovereignty”, Borderlands, 1:2)

 

“16. To the extent… by both entities”

 

We are all complicity in the CAFO system since our tax money pays for the subsidies

Porter, 2006 (Ana, graduate of the Master in Divinity program at UChicago, Jan. 8 “Getting Real About Food”, http://www.uua.org/spirituallife/worshipweb/sermons/submissions/8783.shtml)

 

“And here’s the… we are standing”

 

Given our obligation to minimize suffering, we must reject our complicity in CAFOs or we are no better than the Nazi doctors who turned a blind eye to the camps. Voting aff to acknowledge that we are personally responsible for the pain of hundreds of animals is the only ethical choice you can make to solve.

Jenni, 2003 (Kathie, Vol. 20 No. 3, Journal of Applied Philosophy, “Vices of Inattention”)

“[C]areful scrutiny of… adopt this course.”

CONTENTION ONE: CONCENTRATED ANIMAL FEEDING OPERATIONS

 

THE MODERN POLITICAL STATE IS FOUNDED ON THE DISTINCTION BETWEEN ANIMALS AND HUMANS – IN THAT THE IDEA OF MEAT CREATED THE NEED FOR STATE REGULATIONS OF PUBLIC HEALTH AT THE HEART OF BIOPOLITICS.

 

YOUNG, 6 (UC Berkeley, ‘6 Katherine, Ph.D. Candidate Political Science Department Colorado State University, “Animal Politics: Sovereignty and the Animal Body,” Annual Meeting of the Western Political Science Association Albuquerque, New Mexico March 16-18, 2006, Http:http://www.allacademic.commeta/p_mla_apa_research_citation/0/9/7/2/6/pages97264/p97264-1.php)

 

“In Chapter VII… substantiate its power”

 

INDEED – THIS DISTINCTION BETWEEN ANIMAL AND HUMAN IS WHY WE ALL – BOTH HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN – LIVE AND DIE IN THE CONFINED ANIMAL FEEDING OPERATION THAT IS BIOPOLITICS.

 

WADIWEL, 4 (Joseph W., doctorate candidate @ Univ. of Western Sydney, “Animal by Any Other Name? Patterson and Agamben Discuss Animal (and Human) Life”, Borderlands, 3:1)

 

“14. It is perhaps… humanity or animal”

 

BIOPOLITICS ROOTED IN THE ANIMAL-HUMAN DICHOTOMY ENSURES THE INEVITABLE EXTINCTION OF BOTH HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN ANIMALS.

 

COULTER, 5 (Gerry, Bishops Univ. Canada, “Intersections and Divergences in Contemporary Theory: Baudrillard and Agamben On Politics And the Daunting Questions of Our Time” International Journal of Baudrillard Studies, Volume 2, Number 2 (July 2005)

 

Agamben’s essay anticipates… Agamben’s earlier writings

 

THE CONTINUAL FAILURE OF HUMANITY TO LIVE UP TO ITS NON-ANIMALITY ENSURES THE STATE OF EXCEPTION AT HEART IN MODERN BIOPOLITICS WILL ALWAYS EXIST – MEANING THERE WILL ALWAYS BE DEATH, EXCLUSION, AND WAR UNTIL WE GIT IT TO THE ROOT OF BIOPOLITICS.

 

OLIVER, 7 (Kelly, “Stopping the Anthropological Machine: Agamben with Heidegger and Merleau-Ponty”, PhaenEx 2, no. 2 (fall/winter 2007): 1-23)

 

Agamben’s relation to… hope to stop it.

 

PREFER OUR STRUCTURAL IMPACTS TO THEIR SPECIFIC DISADS – EACH LINK, INTERNAL LINK, AND IMPACT CLAIM IS ENFRAMED AND ROOTED IN THE RISK ANALYSIS OF BIOPOLITICIANS – THIS ENSURES EVERY QUEST FOR SECURITY OR LIFE ALWAYS ENDS UP WITH INSECURITY AND DEATH. MAKING DISADS INEVITABLE.

 

DILLON, 5 (Michael, Lancaster Univ., “Cared to Death: The Biopoliticised Time of Your Life”, Foucault Studies, No 2, pp. 37-46, May 2005)

 

Contra Ojakangas, then,… and disturbs you

 

INDEED – TRYING TO AVOID A SPECIFIC EXTINCTION EVENT LIKE THEIR DISADS ENSURES ANOTHER ONE WILL POP UP – UNTIL ONE ADDRESS THE ROOT CAUSE – BIOPOLITICS.

CAMPBELL AND DILLON, PROFESSOR OF INTERNATIONAL POLITICS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF NEWCASTLE AND PROFESSOR OF POLITICS AT LANCASTER UNIVERSITY, 1993[DAVID AND MICHAEL, THE POLITICAL SUBJECT OF VIOLENCE, P. 163-¬165]

It might have… any other house

 

 

 

PLAN: THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT SHOULD ELIMINATE SUBSIDIES FOR CONCENTRATED ANIMAL FEEDING OPERATIONS BY ELIMINATING ALL SUPPORT FOR THE UNITED STATES FEDERAL GOVERNMENT.

 

CONTENTION TWO: THE BALLOT

 

OUR INTERPRETATION OF ANIMAL IN CONCENTRATED ANIMAL FEEDING OPERATIONS INCLUDES BOTH HUMAN AND NON-HUMAN ANIMALS - THIS THE BEST WAY TO FORCE OUR COMMUNITY TO CONFRONT THE ANTHROPOLOGICAL MACHINE BY TAKING DEBATES AWAY FROM HIGHLY TECHNOLOGIZED EMORY OR DARTMOUTH STYLE EQUIP ANTIBIOTIC RESISTANT DISEASE OR MECHANIZED AGRICULTURE AFFS – SHIFTING IT TO AN ONTOLOGICAL FOCUS ON THE HUMAN-ANIMAL DICHOTOMY.

 

STARBUCK, 6 (Jennifer P., Senior Lecturer in the Department of Drama, Theatre, and Performance Studies at Roehampton University, Theatre Journal 58.4, http://muse.jhu.edu/journals/theatre_journal/v058/58.4starbuck.html0

 

Revisiting the expansiveness… a becoming-animate

 

THE ONLY WAY TO ESCAPE THE MODERN DAY CAFO THAT IS BIOPOLITICS IS TO REFUSE TO DRAW LINES OF ANY KIND BETWEEN ZOE AND BIOS – NOT ONLY MUST THIS REFUSAL TAKE PLACE ON THE TERM ANIMAL, IT MUST ALSO HAPPEN OVER THE TERM SUBSIDY MEANING WE MUST REFUSE THE SOVERIEGN IN TOTALITY OR NOT AT ALL.

 

EDKINS & PIN-FAT, 5 (Jenny and Veronique, Prof of Intnl. Politics @ Univ. of Wales and Lecturer in Intnl. Relations in Centre for International Politics @ Univ. of Manchester, “Through the Wire: Relations of Power and Relations of Violence” Millennium: Journal of International Studies, 2005. ISSN 0305-8298. Vol.34 No.1, pp. 1-24)

 

One potential form… or bare life

 

CONFRONTING THE HUMAN-ANIMAL DICHOTOMY IN RELATIONSHIP TO SOVEREIGNTY IS THE BEST WAY TO RADICALY RUPTURE BIOPOLITICS.

 

WADIWEL, 2 (Joseph W., doctorate candidate @ Univ. of Western Sydney, “Cows and Sovereignty”, Borderlands, 1:2)

 

16. To the extent… by both entities

 

MAKE NO MISTAKE VOTING AFF DOESN’T PASS OUR PLAN, DOESN’T PUT YOU ON THE PETA PICKET LINES, NOR DOES IT BRING AN END TO THE STATE. AN AFFIRMATIVE BALLOT IS PRECISELY HOW WE AS A DEBATE COMMUNITY ESCAPE THE MORAL REGULATION AT HEART IN BIOPOLITICS AND PRECISELY HOW WE FOSTER AN ETHICAL RELATIONSHIP WITH OUR ANIMALITY. SOCIETY DOES NOT CHANGE FROM PLEES TO THE MASTER TO PULL OR STOP PULLING THE LEVER, BUT FROM LOCAL INTERROGATIONS OF THE HUMAN-ANIMAL DICHOTOMY.

 

SMITH, 2 (Mick, Division of Sociology Univ. of Abertay, Dundee, Scotland, “The Ethical Space of the Abattoir: ON the (In)human(e) Slaughter of Other Animals”, Human Ecology Review, Vol. 9, No. 2, 2002)

 

What does it… of animal Others

 

IT IS THIS VERY ETHICAL COMPONENT OF OUR 1AC THAT CAN END THE ANTHROPOLGICAL MACHINE FROM WITHIN – PUTTING ABSTRACT NOTIONS OF FIAT, AGENT COUNTERPLANS, OR POLITICS PROPER FIRST ENSURES BIOPOLITICS WILL RECONSTITUTE ITSELF IN EQUALLY HORRIFIC WAYS.

 

CALARCO, 6 (Mathew, assit. Prof. of philosophy @ CSUF “Jamming the Anthropological Machine”, online)

 

On this political… beyond the human
