    Kansas Hs Grads At The Ndt

    Kansas has one of the strongest high school debate communities alive. The strong tradition of intellectual and persuasive rigor established throughout our state's long tradition is virtually unparalleled. No matter how far away we may go, I know we will always remember and be thankful for where we are from. Even 8 years later, I still remember my first tournament at Fort Scott. Debating in this state is something you will always remember.
  14. West Georgia tried to read this against me before- the cross-x trick is to ask the affirmative if they are "experts" on the subject of the debate. If they say that they are, then WGA reads a critique of expertism, if they say that they are not, then they say that people who aren't experts don't have the right to speak. The glaring logical flaw is that expertism is not a yes/no question, it is a matter of degree and relative skill. For instance, compared to a novice debater, I am certainly an expert on policy debate, but compared to a long-time coach it may be more appropriate to consider my expertise "intermediate." Also, just because one is not an expert on one topic, does not imply that they lack expertise another issue. The "argument" is literally just a translation of a Maoist idea with incoherent logic that people couldn't challenge out of fear. This is not an argument, and people shouldn't try to make it something it isn't, they should pursue alternative avenues of critical analysis. EDIT: I think the explanation above of the more "correct" translation even more effectively puts this argument to rest.

    Kicking Advocacy?

    The permutation is incoherent if the negative team does not advance an alternative. What is there to permute? I suppose one could argue that the argument that the aff as debated "meets" a framework for decision is a "permutation" of a negative's framework argument, but I would remind you of the definition of a permutation: a legitimate permutation is the combination of all of the aff's advocacy and some or all of the negative's (a decision framework is not an advocacy). If done correctly, a negative can concede the permutation debate, only eliminating the aff's permutation and the neg's alternative, without eliminating the links to the K. There may be some exceptions to this, but none come to mind. I don't understand the poster's second point- I think you may have some confusion on debate fundamentals. Kicking an alternative can easily be a viable strategy even if there is no external impact to the criticism. If a negative team is decisively winning that the aff's explanation of their internal link chains is backwards (aka a strong turns the case argument, not a weak/general one), then the negative could win the debate without an external impact or an alternative. I agree with the poster who commented that kicking the alternative may generate uniqueness problems for your criticism, given that it is likely not very unique. However, I think it is important to note that establishing a strong decision calculus, or framework, for the judge to use to decide which impacts to prioritize provides an alternative way to generate a "unique" impact, in the sense that you have reframed what it means for an impact to be unique, or established a framework that eliminates the question of uniqueness.
