Recommended Posts

File Name: A-Spec - Oceans 2014

File Submitter: roarkdebate16

File Submitted: 03 Jun 2014

File Category: Theory

Resolution: Oceans

 



A-spec is usually pretty silly. However, while doing some politics research for the oceans topic I came across a number of really good cards about bureaucratic agency politics empirically undermining US ocean management/development policy. This means that an engaged discussion about agency implementation is a pre-requisite to aff solvency. These cards are extremely specific and high quality. The coolest part of this component of the argument is that oftentimes the 2AC will just read their generic frontline to A-Spec and completely forget about the solvency debate. So in the block, you can just go for the substantive component of the argument and crush them on presumption + a disadvantage. Judges are often very unwilling to let the aff recover after a mistake like this, especially when you read several high-quality cards supporting your argument. This file is fully prepped with extensions through the negative block. At only $3 it is a high-value deal that you will want to start the year off with.

I love how similar this description is to the one you put out for Latin America a year ago.

Is the file the same though? The TOC seems to be the same as far as I can tell. Maybe a couple of different cards?

Most of the theory-related arguments have not changed that much (as reflected by the index, I shameless admit) - the biggest difference/addition is the new topic-specific cards
