Kritik Which Link to Kritikal Teams

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

 

I was wondering what some are some good kritiks that link to most/all kritikal affs? I know that one is circumvention, but this kritik is very common and most teams have pre-made responses to it. For this reason, does anyone know a kritik which is uncommon but links to most/all kritikal affs?

 

Thanks,

AmAsKh

It is not a K, but if it is a race team I think that framework is a really good way of setting up the debate. (That is its job). You can see my previous comments for reasons why; but basically, it is that we agree that racism is probably bad, but we need to engage with specific ideas about racism.

As a baudrillard person, a lot of K teams are about integrating oppressed bodies into society. I would check out Baudrillards simulation and simulacra chapter on the remainder. A lot of interesting stuff. What it's basically saying is that integrating these oppressed bodies makes the entirety of society part of the oppressed. I'll link the book as a pdf.

Adding onto the Baudrillard thing.

 

I would suggest that you construct a ballot commod k using some cards from Baudy where he talks about our society's fascination with disaster porn. The arg would that the aff's method of presenting a litany of suffering and claiming that a simple aff ballot can solve for (or at least alleviate) said suffering is morally bankrupt and counter productive. That is because they are promoting the illusion that the aff can somehow alter reality. All voting aff will do is make everyone in the room feel better for a few minutes because the problem has been "solved," when actually nothing happens. This freezes politics and movements because we're too busy gorging ourselves on this false pleasure we've created to get up and challenge the horrors of the real world. The judge should vote neg so that everyone leaves the room feeling awful

 

Baudy ks aren't really "uncommon" but teams often mishandle him. If you want cards pm me.

that's closer to what he coins 'charity cannibalism' or rather, the notion that we can feed off of the suffering of others, while simultaneously doing nothing to actually help the person who is suffering. the disaster porn argument is closer to psychoanalysis and the death drive in the sense that we replay death in the media because the unconscious is perversely attached to it, which inevitably accelerates into humanity playing itself out on the last televised show ever, in which the whole world implodes.

Or don't read kritiks that link to "kritikal affs." 

 

Instead, research specific affs or specific theories and make criticisms directly to them. This leads to substantially better debates and usually fairs better argumentatively. 

 

Example, 

Against Deleuze affs that argue for rhizomatic micropolitical movements? Read Spivak's critique of Deleuze's conception of the subject. 

 

Against Lacan? Read Deleuze's critique of Lacan.

 

Against hypervisibility? Read Baudrillard's critique of the image which deals specifically with this question and has the opposite alternative. 

 

Against Baudrillard? Read Baudrillard.

Three key options:

Nietzsche or Norm

If they focus on representations, representations.  Otherwise a PIK of their representations.

Impact turns...which is actually a K of their K.
