  1. And for some minor addition to this dispute about the ethics of reading Schmitt, a) there is not a single card in this file that is by Carl Schmitt, rather it is all contemporary application of the political theory that he created, b ) contemporary Schmitt scholars both do not wholesale endorse Carl Schmitt, as the evidence someone posted above indicates, and have been quite good (as in the case of any Heidegger critique) of explaining why his philosophy is a criticism of the actions taken by the man Carl Schmitt, c) if you really want to play the game of historical relevance, Carl Schmitt was also one of the chief architects of the Geneva convention and his work was instrumental in the construction of the ICCPR. Sooooooooo....
  2. Price reduction to $4 - would be happy to answer any questions about the utility of this critique from topic to topic and any execution issues.
  3. Price reduction to $5 dollars - considering the amount of cards in this and the unique nature of the argument that's a steal.
  4. Essentially against most (neo)Marx affs or any aff that deals with the economy for the most part this is a method criticism about the ontological/epistemic implications of framing debates in terms of scarcity, productivity, waste, etc. Argues that this is framing is what sustains the destructive logics of growth that most critical approaches to the economy attempt to address. Our framing ought to be in terms of excess and solar economies of matter and energy since economic productivity and exchange are often thermodynamic questions. We ought not fear loss, we ought not frame political economy in a productive/wasteful paradigm, we should embrace a solar sovereign (I like to joke Sun King) position, exchange dictated by play not by the question of loss and lack. Or phrased on other terms, Marxists and many anti-capitalists and even progrowth capitalists more broadly are trying to resolve the question of entropy in economic systems as though this is a negative or problem to be resolved that's just a matter of some inefficiency. Entropy is inevitable and creative, the universe and our relationship to it and the planet are thermodynamic, the economy is not a closed/restricted system, and thus, to borrow from the title of Land's book, 'thirsts for its annihilation.'

  7. Also not a single card in here is from Schmitt and the most well recognizes modern Schmittian, William Rasch, has gone to great lengths to situate himself well re: the negative legacy of the philosophy.
  8. Price reduction - file is now $3 cheap as hell for some of the least expected cheap shot cards you can drop in a debate. Damn straight Fem IR or Spanos is key to leadership.

    Schmitt K

    File Name: Schmitt K File Submitter: Felix Hoenikker File Submitted: 02 Nov 2013 File Category: Critiques Resolution: Latin America It's a critique of liberal utopianism as well as Cap Bad affirmatives and K affs that claim to change the nature of politics. Enmity is at the core of our existence, the only question is how do we regulate and direct violence, doing otherwise pushes it underground and causes swings to the right. It's an argument that's fallen out of popularity but I think is ripe for a comeback and some of these cards are the best you'll find to roll with Schmitt against these affs.

  12. I'll give an example with the Ecofem Aff that I read on the Energy Topic this year, the aff essentially rejected the mechanisms and framework of the topic and affirmed an ecofeminist pedagogy vis a vis the environment, energy, etc. Our interpretation for debate is that affirmatives must be restricted to instrumental, epistemic, and ontological affirmations of the resolution. This means all discussion must be limited by the question of the mechanism and object(s) of the topic. Offense on top: Only three impact areas – First is Predictable Ground – a) Even if absolute predictability were possible it wouldn’t be desirable: debate would be an endless repetition of the same arguments without innovation or creativity – people leave the activity when it becomes stale, lifeless, and un-relatable. b ) An instrumental policy is not the only predictable or the best point of stasis for debate vis-à -vis climate change, the best analysis are at earlier stasis points in argumentative progression that intersect between disparate fields. Jumping to the last stasis point of techno-scientific decision making means climate debates are always at an impasse. Malone in 12 (Elizabeth LL; PhD Sociology @ U of Maryland, MA Comms @ Purdue, nobel peace prize winner 2007 for Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, etc http://www.pnl.gov/science/staff/staff_info.asp?staff_num=5697 ; Debating Climate Change: Pathways through Argument to Agreement; p. n/a ebook; Google Books/Routledge) One way to cluster the arguments is to determine where they are in terms of AND shared across the boundaries of science, social solidarity and politics/policy. Second their Education is Bad a) Repeats the Public/Private division: Patriarchy brackets out subjective marginalized epistemic positions as grounded in emotion as irrelevant while valorizing “objective†knowledge claims. Switch side doesn’t solve – instrumental focus always crowds out these forms of knowledge b ) Elite focus bad – it relies on problematic notions of human nature that restrict political agency and detract from local politics. Plumwood in 7 (Val; Australian Research Council Fellow @ Australian National University, ecofeminist and founder of the ecological humanities; “Has democracy failed ecology? An Ecofeminist perspective,†Environmental Politics Vol 4 Iss 4; Taylor and Francis) If liberal democracy (by which I mean the attempt to combine liberal principles of AND in the long run, the only source of hope for real improvement. Third it disengages students: a) Disembodied education leaves violent paradigms unchallenged and causes a backlash from the supposed receivers of knowledge. Peers in 12 (Chris; Faculty of Education of Monash University; “Freud, Plato and Irigaray: A morpho-logic of teaching and learningâ€; Educational Philosophy and Theory,Vol. 44, No. 7; Ebsco Host)\ In the absence of historical and cultural signifiers, the reconciliation of teaching and learning AND of course, that the teacher who won’t listen similarly destabilizes pedagogical logic.) b ) Switch side decouples advocacy from sincerity which normalizes neoliberal models of education. Hicks and Greene in 5 (darrin and walter, LOST CONVICTIONS Debating both sides and the ethical self-fashioning of liberal citizens, cultural studies, vol 19 no 1) But why dredge up this event ...and uptake of cultural technologies. c) Your role as a judge and academic should be to advance the most ethical pedagogical approaches. Kretz in 12 (Lisa; “Climate Change: Bridging the Theory-Action Gap†ETHICS & THE ENVIRONMENT, 17:2; MUSE) Academic ethicists are uniquely ...political, economic, and social locations. Next is our defense. a) Predictable Ground: All topic research is directed at the objects of the topic as well as the topic mechanism. Since all research they believe predictable assumes a supply side framework then all research would be relevant offense or defense means virtually all disadvantages, case negatives, and K answers apply. b ) Predictability doesn’t exist and is impossible to universalize: no universal standard and voting on framework can’t implement a static model of predictable debate c) No objective standard for textual interpretation means you default to broad interpretations of the resolution Gehrke in 98 (Gehrke, Pat J. "Critique arguments as policy analysis: policy debate beyond the rationalist perspective." Perspectives in Controversy: Selected Essays from Contemporary Argumentation and Debate (2002): 302) Similarly, we might say that any policy debater who does not seek a critical AND interpretive, Berube's objective standard for encountering a text never can be met. d) Switch side is a myth: teams never truly switch sides – teams will read framework on the aff and neg to preserve their preferred ground. e) No Impact to Topic Education: The function of tournaments is to advance the most valuable pedagogical and epistemic methods and proposals derived from that research. Don’t Evaluate this Debate based on Competing Interpretations; Default to Reasonability: a) Infinitely regressive: so long as we don’t follow their interpretation to the ‘t’ they will always find some minute distinction to limit us out – reasonability solves b ) Predictable Ground is not Preferred Ground: No right to your favorite arguments only to debates limited by the topic area. Voting against us a big penalty. They should have to win that we have made debating impossible

  15. File Name: Enjoyment K File Submitter: Felix Hoenikker File Submitted: 17 May 2013 File Category: Critiques Resolution: Latin America Looking for a new K to break against those pesky K affs or a new trick to try and blind side a die hard policy team so certain that roleplaying is good? Look no further. The Enjoyment K is a psychoanalytic critique of the belief that a speech act is material, that imagining ourselves in impossible positions of leadership and heroism is good, and of those that would reject any and all epistemic authority or social hegemony. The critique argues that these beliefs and structures are all intimately tied to a "society of enjoyment" that brings people to retreat into their own private worlds and eventually come to be narcissists that live vicariously through their ego ideal.

File Name: Epistemology K2 Heg File Submitter: Felix Hoenikker File Submitted: 09 Apr 2013 File Category: Critiques Resolution: Latin America It's a collection of cards by the Director of National Intelligence for the Army from a declassified report on intelligence gathering. The author argues, using a variety of different brands of (mostly French) epistemic criticism, that if it is true that the Cold War realpolitik models do not apply since war has become asymmetrical and violence more diffuse then new epistemic models are essential to leadership. A lot of fun for Ks on the aff or neg that don't want to have to deal with a massive heg good/bad debate. Yay dirty tricks! Click here to download this file

  19. Splitting fucking hairs.
  20. The Deleuze K I posted a few topics back didnt get very many purchases or downloads but I think its relevance on the coming infrastructure topic will be up especially since many affirmative will likely try to side step environment questions by reading an "environmentally friendly" affirmative. That is the perfect scenario for this critique. The price dropped to 5 bucks there's a fair amount of good cards in this file I think you'll enjoy it. The Conspiracy Toolbox is just for shits and giggles, its a fun file to have for if you ever want to write your own Conspiracy Theory K aff about Lacan - has cards talking about the decline of symbolic efficiency, the interesting tricks for people's generic indicts that are usually about Zizek, and for only $4 I don't think it's a bad purchase.
  21. File Name: Irigaray K File Submitter: Felix Hoenikker File Submitted: 30 Mar 2012 File Category: Critiques Resolution: Space Development This is a basic Irigaray K for the space topic. Link arguments a premised on the assertion of masculinity as the template for human experience or framing sexual difference on terms that are masculine in origin. The criticism is about giving women their own political space time and creating the space for a feminine discourse. The distinction between this and your average feminism K is the unique nature of the literature base, its connection to psychoanalysis without being bogged down by the same baggage, and the lack of offense most people will have against the alternative. Even with the space topic coming to a close many of the pieces of evidence in this file will be useful in many future topics to come and this file represents an underutilized literature base in feminism as far as both academia and debate are concerned.

This literature base has been the D3 trademark of this particular debater - for a frame of reference check out our Texas - Irigaray aff on the caselist here - http://68.233.253.124/xwiki/wiki/opencaselist/view/UMKC/Bonnet-Sadowski+Aff In all seriousness 90% of our debates that are specific to the criticism come down to people making arguments about essentialism. This is totally absurd to me and an issue that is dealt with in the critique. In addition I will say that anyone that purchases this file and would like help writing blocks and explaining the arguments in debates need only add me on Facebook and I will be glad to offer my services. Any questions? Field them here.
