5 minutes of theory in the 2AR in Topicality and Procedurals Posted August 18, 2008 · Report reply potential abuse doesn't make much sense in the context of condo bad. No. The status of a K/CP/etc. alters the 2AC's time allocation/strategy. *** I feel like this needs to be said. Seems like everyone in this thread views "abuse" as a terminal impact. Well, it's not. The two terminal impacts are fairness and education. When going for theory, you need to explain the importance of both. (Fairness is a pre-requisite to education, encourages participation, etc) (Education is the point of the activity, facilitates activism/real-world change, etc) All too frequently debaters just cry that they've been abused! And THOSE theory debates are the ones that 99.9% of all judges hate.
