    ...I think you know...
  1. What does "ontological ethical" mean? Are you saying that there is a responsibility to be ontological?
  2. I know that ethics and ontology are traditionally separated. But through all of this discussion of technology and being, does someone have an ethical responsibility to achieve an authentic ontology?
  3. I think that you can gain some access to solvency by arguing that exucating women will increase the standard of living. I'm not sure if you could find evidence that says a good standard of living will be able to produce the kind of solvency that you need to access your gender advantages. And I'm sure that there is a law review out there arguing that educating women will stop female genital mutilation (stop using acronyms) by empowering them.
  4. Is 'sub-Saharan Africa' a mass noun? Do you think its topical to specify one country?
  5. Ecofeminism and Social Ecology both critique deep ecology. Murray Bookchin for Socail Ecology and Val Plumwood for ecofeminism.
  6. Bump. Does anyone have the UTNIF Heidegger file?
  7. This sounds like a piece of an Onion article. Passionate Anarchist Fails To See How Its His Fault "I mean, what the fuck man?" Sherman Martin Austin said after being violently woken from a nap. It was four o'clock in the afternoon. But what did Austin do that was wrong? He posted information on the Internet. What information? The information in the previous link was published by this Republican. It is the exact content that Mr. Austin went to prison for. The lesson: a Republican can do the same as an anarchist and no sweat — it’s all good.
  8. At what point did Foucault change from a structuralist to a photo-post-structuralist? And do you really think that he made the transition?
  9. Does anyone have pdf or text file of America's Shadow? PM me if you do.
  10. Post #13 here:http://www.cross-x.com/vb/showthread.php?t=968033&highlight=Campbell has some Campbell evidence. THe book that most of his good cards come from is called "The Deterrortilization of Responsibility."
  11. Thats all fine, but what do you mean when you say 'you don't have an alternative until you can give it context." If what you're saying about the link is true all it does is establish the ground for the alternative. I want to know how your alternative functions as per each person in the room. Does the judge vote for the status quo simply as a rejection of the affirmative? Or does the judge vote to change some kind of ideology by way of personal advocacy. Thats really all I care about right now.
  12. The argument regarding severance is interesting because severance doesn't mean that you can't provide the context for the alternative. This whole idea of contextual alternatives really all depends on your link. You can read any 'traversing the fantasy' card (merely an example) and claim any kind of solvency based on the simple fact that there is a link. The problem I'm having, or missing, is the internal link between context and stregnth of alternative. Is the stregnth of your alternative determined by some kind of personal rejection of the 1ac along with the advocacy of the alternative?
  13. You can look at Levinas for ontology bad. There is also this Campbell evidence that says ontology justifices the holocaust and Nazi stuff like that.
