What is that

the conditions counterplan is a theoretically questionable/illegitmate counterplan in policy debate used primarily on topics with more than one country. The plan is done in a quid pro quo (this for that) where the target country must do something in order to receive the benefits of the plan.

The lit base for this topic is atrocious.  I've been cutting from..

 

UN handbooks..

and..

US congress briefings.

 

If anyone finds any good articles, I'll trade for them.

You could look here:

Also, some quick googling has shown some statements by the Obama Admin, but I doubt that's what you're looking for.

 

As an aside, I was looking through the LD disclosure for giggles (I do policy) and I have to ask if this is really how theory debates sound in LD? (impacting out education)

Yeah it's pathetic, the whole LD community is ashamed of our theory debates.

"Education is a voter because it's the reason schools fund debate."

 

Literally the most common warrant in LD for education being a voter. Because if you don't run theory, your school is totally gonna cut funding.

Well...I guess my district is screwed then. It's rare to see actual theory in policy here, let alone what I've seen/heard of LD.

Shitty districts everything is definition debates.  Debaters get awarded for playing with the resolution, even if it has no voter of education/fairness.

Looking though cases in my area people do define almost every relevant word...

Thank Ashtar I do policy so I don't have to deal with people obsessively focusing...on minor...definitions...****.

Are there any good more left leaning or kritikal strategies for the negative that analyze the resolution? I can't seem to find anything other than "sanctions good" which is no fun at all.

I assume the vast majority of affirmatives will defend humanitarian aid, of which the kritiks are endless.

 

Also, someone somewhere needs to defend the following:

 

Catch 22 CP

 

Text: Humanitarian aid should only be offered on the condition that the recipient refuse to accept the aid.

 

It's neg ground because it places a condition on humanitarian aid.

 

The CP functionally bans aid -- accepting aid would violate the condition under which the aid is offered. Insert reasons HA is bad, kritikal or otherwise.

Why doesn't the aff just ban humanitarian aid? 

 

Seems to meet the topic.

It's a bit extra-T though, the topic is only about placing political conditions on that aid

We have a predominantly lay circuit so I want a kritik of the resolution. Its a lot easier for the judge to understand philisophical reasons why the rez is bad

"We should not place conditions on aid, because we should not give aid at all." 

 

/edit/ I suppose the term "political" complicates that. What counts as a "political" condition and what are the other types of condition?

I am going to be debating LD the first time at our District Tournament in a few weeks.

Does anyone have any tips about LD? Any Cases they would be willing to share?

The only experience I have is in policy...and only a year in that.

Thanks.

I would be willing to help you out on any questions you might have, (I did both LD and Policy) just pm them to me. I'm willing to share my previous cases for the March/April topic with you (I'm finished debating it), but I ran a critical affirmative (Fem AC), and older cases just for case structure knowledge for you.
