  1. I have a tournament this weekend, my partner can't debate and my school wont let me go mavvy so im going to have to debate LD. 6 entrants are from my school, 2 from another. What should i run? i have no idea how to do LD, The resolution is In the United States, juveniles charged with violent felonies ought to be treated as adults in the criminal justice system.


  2. I personally feel that history of sexuality provides a very good way to begin reading Foucault. As for evidence and the such, there are some pretty good cards that are used directly from Foucault (most of the ones I use being from History of Sexuality vol. 1), however it depends on what you need cut. As for alternatives I find that a "criticism" alternative seems to work the best, there are a few good threads on it so just use the search function. Also, there is a good explanation of Foucault the author explanations thread is a very good explanation of his philosophy.


    Any specific questions just ask.


    I looked at your posts about criticism alts but im still not sure what they are. Could you send me an example of one? Also when im reading those books what should i look for in them? does a history of sexuality talk about biopower? Thanks again

  3. Hello, i am running biopower this year and i was wondering what i could do do beef up my camp file. Can anyone suggest a good file, or some place to cut cards? (books are fine) Also what alternative do you suggest using? A judge suggested that i read Foucault's "discipline and punish" but im not sure what kind of cards to cut from it (link, impact, alt)

    Thanks for any help in advance :)
