  7. yea sorry, been real busy. ill try to do some major work on it this weekend and have it out saturday night.
  8. a few movies i have seen recently and would recommend for purchase: 400 blows fanny and alexander solo con tu pareja the dreamers
  9. im thinking it will be on evazon by the end of the week, busy weekend.
  10. lets not be presumptive, ive hit john cooks file before and its quite good, albeit different then the argument i am putting out. and yea, ill cover alot of the arguments synergy requested blocks for, although i think covering that much area might ultimately be counterproductive. alot of the nuance required to answer uber-specific responses comes best in-round, where an equally nuanced and round-tailored response can be made.
  11. i will soon be posting a nietzsche k, which i think will be extremely well suited for next years topic, and was wondering what input people want to make before i post it. any specific blocks wanted, or arguments you want cards provided for?
  12. Hey I am doing a project which involves talking about philosophical trends in 1990's Europe. Can someone let me know what was philosophically popular in Europe during the 90s?

  14. unt scholars i cant speak about plan 2 (i have never been there), but UNT Scholars has been great the last two summers. the staff is fantastic: for the seniors lab its brian lain (head coach at UNT, previously taught at emory and other places), calum matheson (1st speaker basically everywhere his senior year, finals of ceda, overall great debate mind) and jonathan paul (won the ndt!). the way its set up is also very helpful with a diverse schedule every day involving lectures, practice debates, and lab time.

  18. OBSERVATION I Current U.S. policy fails to provide support to stop the genocide in Darfur because of the myth that it is solely an African responsibility. This has allowed the U.S. to stand on the sidelines while millions die. RICE 2K5 (Susan E., senior fellow of foreign policy studies at the brookings institution, “Why Darfur Can’t Be Left to Africa,” The Washington Post, August 7, http://www.brookings.edu/views/articles/rice/20050807.htm) Thus the PLAN, The United States Congress should create a genocide prevention division in the U.S. Army by establishing a 15 month enlistment option with no requirement to serve in the National Guard or Army Reserves after the 15 month enlistment term has ended. The Congress should also provide post-secondary education loans to those who complete the 15 month enlistment. OBSERVATION 2- GENOCIDE Inaction in the face of genocide sanctions it. In an increasingly interconnected world, we can no longer call ourselves neutral bystanders when others are subject to mass death. Vetleson, 2000 (Arne Johan, Department of Philosophy University of Oslo, “Genocide: A Case for the Responsibility of the Bystander”, Journal of Peace Research, July, p. 520-522) The situation in Sudan epitomizes the dehumanization involved in genocide. Dehumanization makes all violence inevitable. Barbara Rylko-Bauer, 2005 (Lessons About humanity and Survival From my Mother and from the Holocaust. Anthropolgical Quarterly 78.1 11-41) Failure to intervene would be complicity in genocide. This risks the destruction of all life on earth through extinction of the spirit. Ketels 96 (Violet B. November, "Havel to the Castle! The Power of the Word,” The ANNALS of the American Academy of Political and Social Science 1996 548: 45-69, pp. 50-51) Finally, the plan kick-starts an ethic of care by highlighting individuals' personal connections to genocide. This holds the United States government accountable for inaction in the face of political violence. Naomi Kaplan, spring 2003, staff writer "A Failure of Perspective: Moral Assumptions and Genocide," Boston College Third World Law Journal (23 B.C. Third World L.J. 359), p. L/N OBSERVATION 3 – SOLVENCY Only the plan solves—U.S. commitment is critical to stopping genocide in Sudan and future conflicts. O’HANLON 2K6 (Michael, senior fellow at the Brookings Institution, “Army genocide prevention unit?” The Washington Times, May 7) And, we control uniqueness and the impact to your DAs—Humanitarian intervention is inevitable and the plan corrects potential errors. O’HANLON AND PRENDERGAST 2K4 (Michael E., senior fellow of foreign policy studies at the Brookings Institution, John, former director of African affairs at the national security council, former special adviser to the US state department, “The Urgent Need to Save Lives with Force,” Financial Times, August 26, http://www.brook.edu/printme.wbs?page=/pagedefs/0f07f0441c78ff3e0c2646f50a1415cb.xml) And studies prove the plan solves the current recruitment crisis Moskos 05 - Professor of sociology at Northwestern University.

The program will be smoothly incorporated Graham 99 [bradley Graham, “ Short-Term Remedy for Recruiters?
