Ecological cartography affirmative: A boundary is not that at which something stops but, as the Greeks recognized, the boundary is that from which something begins its essential unfolding. One of the fundamental problems in environmental policies today is that they legislate policies that are meant to work equally well across a pre-given area, whether a certain state or the entire country. This attempt to make nature fit into political cartographies not only leads to failed policy implementation, but it also promotes violent discourses and practices whose goal is to try and tame nature for human needs, a mindset at the political and cultural center of today's environmental crisis. This affirmative will call for a reorientation of political incentives for a national alternative energy architecture toward a bioregional perspective. Biopower K: Today, one of the primary fields where people are called upon to police themselves in order to defend society from apocalyptic threats is the environment; ecology is the final frontier in the regulation of life, and the threat of this regulation's failure penetrates so intimately into our daily lives--the air we breathe, the water we drink, the ways in which we move around--that it is a small step from ecological self-sacrifice to an ecological fascism which demands that life itself be harnessed for our own protection and perfection. 2AC blocks, backfile Waste K: The majority of ecological paradigms are premised on one flawed assumption: that expenditure can be eliminated from human/environment interactions. The attempt to repress all the unruly elements of life only results in the return of the repressed in a stronger and more insistent form. George Bataille, and after him Jacques Lacan, argued that negativity, loss, expenditure, sacrifice, and the beautiful were central and ineradicable elements of human life. Only an ecological politics that can embrace expenditure can avoid laying waste to the all that is nonproductive, even beautiful, in life. 2007-8 version. Federalism Disadvantage: federalism backfile States Counterplan: file, 2AC blocks, Lopez Counterplan: federalism backfile Social/political architecture: The argument I want to work on could function as an aff or d/a or cplan. I'm in the very very beginning process of researching but I want to write an argument about the social/political architecture of alternative energy projects. The thesis in a nutshell advocates for grassroots-community-embedded modular alternative energy projects w/ lots of buy-in from end users. Advantages are: democracy/civil society, better solvency than top-down approaches, a laundry list of environmental harms. Here is one article example: Steven, M. Hoffman, and High-Pippert Angela. 2005. Community Energy: A Social Architecture for an Alternative Energy Future. Bulletin of Science, Technology & Society 25 (5):387-401.SAhe argument I want to work on could function as an aff or d/a or cplan.
