So, there is a pirates AFF that's run by a few teams on the West Coast circuit that talks about Somalian Pirates, and  a method of studious play to break down "the marketplace".  If your really curious, College Prep has there AFF on the Wiki about it.  Does anyone have any cites or evidence against Studious play?  Please and thank you.

Basically the entirety of CPS runs Pirates - I think it's based off of Agambens theories?

 

I watched one of their rounds for about 10 minutes (only up to the 1NC CX) at the CSUF tournament out-rounds; the girl from CPS explained it like the glue that is found in the Lego Movie, she said studious play is like that.

But... the glue was a BAD thing in the LEGO movie. It limited the freedom of the citizens of LEGOland to build as they please, and they live under the heel of an oppressive control freak, President Business. Also,

The glue was used by an uncaring father to enforce his ideal of what is the "right" way to play with LEGOs, at the cost of his son's joy. (Links to a lot of epistimology and imperialism Ks).

So, how did they frame it as a good thing?

This abstract from EBSCO seems to run counter to any explanation that includes saying they are glue.

 

My guess is that its the way current policy = glue and they break the glue or something.  It certainly makes sense to write at least one block going the other way--but the idea that they say glue is good--seems pretty far fetched. (despite semi eye-witness testimony above)

Pirates are ideologically opposed to glue.  

 

Also, if you post a "please help me with this argument"--its nice to at least link to the argument.  It helps with

productivity too: http://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/College+Prep/Harper%2DXiao+Aff

The figure of the pirate is modern society’s secret law and forgotten foundation. Imperial plunder made possible early capitalist accumulation and produced the feral image of anarchy that is the foundational moment for modern political theory.

European powers quickly moved to circumscribe this un-sanctioned piracy in order to secure their own ability to bring Africans to market as slaves in servitude to the plantation economy and the industrial revolution.

      • Potentiality is an important educational concept that repeatedly appears in¶ practice, policy, 
        AND
        within an overall biotechnological¶ framework concerned with optimization of life- resources.
        Unfortunately our potentiality is not fulfilled but instead destroyed in the name of efficiency and effectiveness, the result is a person only capable of a select few capable skills. The apparatus of the learning society produces a process of desubjectification, which insists that all alternatives and any form of resistance are impossible.

        human capital, or¶ a generic skill set of an entrepreneurial self.
        This learning apparatus produces a spectacle of freedom which is nothing more than fantasy—producing our own desubjectification and a crude façade of democratic deliberation. Only by taking control of this apparatus of subjectification/desubjectification can there be any hope for an alternative politics.

        Our method of studious play can reclaim education from learning by opening up space and time such that identity is no longer fixed within larger tropes of market-focused learning. By tracing the contours of the history of piracy and the signatures which subjectified and desubjectified the figure of the Pirate our profanation of education creates a site of resistance to the looming catastrophe Agamben refers to as thanatopolitics.

        Studious play operates by oscillating between forward and withdrawing, possibility and impossibility, contingency and necessity – our injection of pure potentiality into debate produces a tautological structure that holds within itself mutually exclusive ontologies, allowing for authentic, paradigmatic freedom
