Capitalism Advantage

Recommended Posts

Actually if you PM me I have some very interesting Cap Uniqueness stuff that are specific to energy affs

 

Also, don't listen to people who say cap bad, most cap links are pretty weak this year, however Neolib is probably a threat. Most cap style kritiks say that some form of inherent form of capitalism leads to anarchocap and that anarchocap is bad.

 

However, consumption via cap links to almost every K ever, soooooo... Unless you can create a great cap framework you're probably fricked over in that instance. (but I have one if you want it, it's based off of a more conservative way of thinking though)

 

Credentials: 7/1 w/l ratio with my cap good aff

The only time I'd run a Cap Good aff would be if it were an Accelerationism aff - and I'd have to win util ethics good since my aff would be literally grinding all those afflicted by capitalist exploitation

I know, we'd be saying that cap is good because only cap is able to dismantle itself; the only problem with that is that we're going to have to literally destroy the planet in order to achieve such ends

Likewise, I have dreams about reading it and destroying the other team with it

 

but seriously, it's more of an issue of Nick Land indicts (he's a neo-reactionary), and the fact that a post-accelerationist society will prolly be neo-reactionist since most of its advocates are neo-reactionaries - Basically, avoid Landian accelerationism and you're good  :flower:  :flower:  :flower:  :flower:  :flower:

But cyberspace...

 

Nick Land's pretty great. Well, Fanged Noumena is. As a work of philosophy. Dat Ray Brassier Nihil Unbound stuff doe.

 

Honestly, I just want there to be a vaguely food-related topic so I can cut Vol. VII of Collapse: "Culinary Materialism."

Also, mediafire is really starting to piss me off because it won't copy links properly. If anything is a broken link up there let me know.

Thanks everyone for the feedback. I convinced my partner to switch to a whole new aff. I appreciate the forums help

I've coached multiple teams to the NDT at three different universities.  Changing your aff doesn't change your strategic approach to this issue fundamentally (unless its a super-K aff).  This soooooo much:

 

You shouldn't make a Cap advantage because of the uniqueness question, but if you have an econ advantage you'll have implicit impact turns.

 

 

The only exception would be if your aff was bad on econ....but you should NEVER do that....unless the plan is to impact turn econ.

 

So in sum:

1) Use economy to impact turn the alternative to capitalism (this could work with some other K arguments too--at the very least they are a parallel impact turn)

2) You might invest time in BOTH your link and your impact.
