    In order of importance these are the arguments you need to beat dedev 1. Growth Sustainable (Technology is usually a panacea to many of our problems, history proves) 2. Growth is good 3. The aff's impacts aren't resolved by the dedev alternative 4. Transition wars happen and will make us extinct 5. Growth Inevitable/Alternatives Fail 6. Other countries can just take over. It isn't very easy to prove that a country like China wouldn't take over our land and resources if we decided to dedev our economy. 7. No timeframe on when the collapse happens, most people don't read alts so you should say that people won't transition at all. The main thing is to win that you are promoting a sustainable future. If you lose the growth sustainable debate it becomes very hard to win any other arguments. Good evidence for growth sustainable is easily found and hopefully the affirmative you run can be a key link to the future. If you run an affirmative like offshore wind, it is critical that you say the growth as a result of the affirmative is sustainable.
  3. Can anyone judge for the BVN varsity tournament on October 17th-18th?

    good tournament and great judging pool. Hope to see tournaments like this for the rest of the year. Also OfficerTom is the greatest debater to have ever existed
  10. You guys think its easier to say extinction is going to happen instead of racism.....?
  11. You walk in and see a panel. 3 parents all sitting, they have watched debates before, but judge every year because of their son/daughter. You are negative in this round, I guess the point of this thread is how do you make arguments (or which are the most convinicing) that you can easily win on in the 2nr. For example, I feel like states counterplans or insane disadvantages, like insane extinction claims dont seem to work. Status quo arugments are good, but it always ends up with the 2ar saying well, why not try this plan. Is there a correct way to approach inherency with lay judges, they dont seem to care what the 2nr says, if the 2ar just bs's the whole debate right there. What are the best tactics that seem to work in front of parents? Negating the resolution seems extremely hard to win in a negative round.
