So, as i understand it, because K's don't have uniqueness, the reason the judge should vote on them is to reject bad knowledge production by the aff, whether it be epistemology, ontology, whatever. It seems like it's impossible to argue consequentialism framework on a K. Take for example neolib. Without uniqueness, it's impossible to assess the impact of the plan itself because we don't know by how much the plan spreads neoliberalism. That's why we argue instead that the judge should reject the aff on the grounds that they engage in neoliberal discourse and neoliberalism is bad for x y and z reasons. 

 

So am I wrong in this assessment? Is it possible to run a consequentialism framework on kritiks? Do all kritiks have to reject fiat and focus on in-round knowledge production? If so, is it possible to run framework on a k while at the same time running a PIC such as consult or condition, or any advocacy that links to the k, without performative contradiction?

 

Thanks!

well actually, you can weigh the alt in a consequentialist framework, can't you? In the case of neolib, say the alt is to have a revolution. Why not just run that as a counterplan if we're comparing hypothetical consequences of an action? Is there a difference between the way the neg asks the judge to endorse the political action in the alt and the way the aff asks for an endorsement of the plan? Like does the neg weigh the alt by saying that endorsing the alt is better than the plan/perm in a consequentialist sense or because it's a way to reject neoliberal discourse?

The idea is that the alt creates uniqueness.

 

World of Aff: neolib now, Aff perpetuates it, neolib is bad

 

World of Neg: neolib now, alt ends it, neolib is bad
