"context of rez before colon"

Recommended Posts

Hey y'all

 

quick question here: i noticed some teams say that the context of the resolution comes before the colon, and read a definition like this one: 

 

The colon focuses the reader’s attention on what to follow, and as a result, you should use it to introduce an idea that somehow completes the introductory idea.

 

What does this mean? Like, what is this argument and what is the point?

 

Thanks so much

The context of the resolution is given by the word resolved, which comes before the colon and means to reduce by mental analysis.  Thus, the resolution means that we should analyze the topic that follows the colon rather than advocate for the topic.  

 

The neg team will generally read an interp saying that "Resolved:" refers to implementation of legislation, which means we should advocate the specific topic and not just analyze it.

 

Either way, begs the question of the standards debate.

Thx bobbytables, great explanation. On a completely unrelated sidenote, i see the same robinson 12, baudrillard 76, mcgowan 13 and raszinsky 9 cards deployed on every wiki's fear of death 1nc--> did everybody just find and cut these cards themselves or are they from a camp file/opensource that i can find somewhere?
