K Affs

Recommended Posts

What are some effective neg strats against K affs? I don't really know how to answer them. Thanks!

It is really contingent on the aff- can you give a more specific basis?

 

Here are some common options

1) framework- want them to defend a policy not an advocacy

 

2) t- maybe their kritik of tje topicnis not in tje least big pertinent to the rez

 

3) kritik it

A) cap k- popular- plan helps cap/ affects capital and that is bad

B] schmitt k- a team on my circuit likes to run this- the aff solves enmity and enmity is good

- the more specific to the aff the better

 

 

The best option is to either go hard right or hard left

I think a couple of teams on the circuit are running K affs with the opening of US/Mexico border. The advantages are probably relating to race/gender

Is it fiated? Are they actually opening it or just breaking down the border in the mind?

They're actually opening it

1) t-ee - opening borders prolly isnt ee

 

2) the other off really depends on what you are good at-

You can k it- schmit, cap

Da- opening border causes terrorism and argue for util and there is always politics

Cp's- a condition cp or process cp or consult

 

3) as far as case goes - there are cards that opening the border causes more racism, defense to aff cant solve, alt cause- us wont stop other acts of hegemony, etc

yo sorry that aff is unbeatable ;D, jk. Critiquing a k aff is the best way to go. I'm just going to blurt a bunch of arguments, if you need help understanding any particular one just ask:

 

framework, suffering reps, speaking for others, absurdity, cp to where every country opens the border (maybe, idk if this is actually a thing), and if the plan is only about lifting the border and not discourse or contextualizing the mind you can probably run some kappeler or personnel responsibility stuff.

 

Also check out the Gonzaga and HSS files on openevidence for neg stuff.

Wait what is different between that and lifting the embargo? Both just let more EE in the future....

it becomes one of those t debates which devolves into an effects T debate due to the nature of this years rez and the interpretations of EE being read. Opening up the border with Mexico is not EE in any sense, but is EE through effects in basically every way (some people try to spin this as diplomatic engagement, but the lit is not really on their side.)

the only difference really in the effects t debates with open borders vs. embargo is that the embargo is perceived as the number 1 aff under this topic this year (core of topic) whereas the predictability and topic specific arguments for open borders are not quite as good. Some judges will pull the trigger on effects T on open borders, whereas almost no judge will ever vote down the embargo on T.

It should just be framed as a reason why their interp restricts literally the core of the topic. Should be pretty easy to win that opening borders are EE if that's the best offense against it.

ya i have never had or seen anyone have a problem with it. But bad T debates lead to bad decisions, and with affs like open borders, its easy to fall of the mark in a T debate and become mezmorized by the critical aapects of the case which interact with the T debate, and lose sight of the simple "if you reject us, you reject the core of the topic, ie. cuba embargo" type args that most policy affs consistently make. 

 

that said, open borders is probably 100% topical as it is

If its borers with a plan text, the State PIC is a killer.  You're agreeing that borders are bad----you just want to go a step further and remove borders territorializing the mind and restricting desire.

 

Schmitt is pretty good against borders (policy or K aff), and with the right links cap can be run against almost any aff.  Cap's also good against borders especially since opening up the borders would probably increase U.S.-mexico trade flows.

 

Its pretty hard to out-right the plan text version of borders---you can try it but i wouldn't reccomend.

 

I've also always been a fan of reading a CTP DA or K against K affs (independent of framework)

Cede the political.  Dat state is inevitable, and exiting state based politics only allows the right to take over.  Authoritarian takeover causes extinction and turns all doese K impacts

You are correct.  It's just then when i think K, i instantly think Left.  That's true most of the time, but not always.

 

And Schmitt and Schmittean authors do come out in favor of plurality, so it does have some liberal elements to it.

If you know which teams (and their K affs) you may be facing beforehand, it is really helpful to scout. You can usually find very K aff specific evidence as to why the action of their plan is bad.

 

i.e. Grieving Bad, Roleplaying Bad, Discussion fails to create real change, Individual action not effective, State essential for change, etc...

 

Generally from what Ive seen, disagreeing with the main premise of the aff is NOT effective, you should agree with their goal, but reject or alter their method in a way that is more effective.

hence reading it as a K with the alt being something like "vote neg to engage the state and fight for justice from withing"

If there's no fiated plan, then establish basis for competition. 

 

"If we win engaging Cuba/Mexico/Venezuela is bad, do we win?" etc
