    Satire Good: The Official Onion File

    "The Allegory of the Squirrel" combines folklore, fables, The Onion, and many other non-traditional debate positions to create a unique negative argument unlike anything else that has ever been deployed in debate. This is not some cheap, WGLF knock-off, this is a completely new way of using satire, on the cutting edge of how critique is deployed in high-level college debate.
     
    This file is absolutely NOT just a collection of random song lyrics, stories, and onion cards. It is actually a rather robust critical position about communication models and speech acts within civil society. Additionally, there is a large set of semi-generic critical positions that dovetail nicely with the central thesis of the communication scholarship arguments. In total, the file is 161 pages and has 2NC blocks for all relevant positions. Nearly every card is highlighted, and blocks are battle ready.
     
    If you have ever wanted to deploy a strong, difficult to answer, non-traditional negative strategy, this is the file for you. The file includes an explanation of the files components, and is ready for rounds right off the shelf.

    Nuclear Malthus

    Nuclear malthus is the argument that a large, full scale, nuclear war would be good for the world. The argument is tricky because it gets to make smart uniqueness claims about the inevitability of nuclear war and human extinction which often obviate affirmative responses. Now is a great time for nuclear malthus! Recent NASA studies on limited nuclear war still lose to the same tricks as always, and teams are less prepared than ever to deal with a big-stick impact turn. This position also couples well with any number of critical positions.
     
    The file is 130 pages long and contains blocks to every argument I know of. The file is ready to use out of the box.

    Deleuze and Guattari Master File

    Table of Contents
     
    This is the master Deleuze and Guattari file I have relied on for the last 2 years. This file, on the negative, holds a 16-1 record, beating countless TOC over-qualified teams throughout my senior year. The file includes 3 distinct 1NC shells, massive amounts of extensions for each of them, explanatory 2NC overviews and answers to the most common 2AC arguments.The file also contains enough evidence to make dozens of other shells to your liking, create critical 1ACs, and even be utilized to answer various critiques in the 2AC with your regular aff.If you don't want to do work next year, or just want a nice strategic and rarely heard file to rely on against affs where you have nothing else, this file is for you.The file also contains a bonus A/T Lacan section, which houses many arguments the common team running psychoanalysis is not prepared for.No, the number of pages is not a typo - this file really is OVER 200 pages long.
