  1. thats a fair point, im not too well read in the relationship between deleuze and wilderson, but having read the article i linked above, i think its definitely something to be on the lookout for. i think it could go either really well or really poorly, and i think if you "don't really get the philosophy", then it is more likely to end up going poorly.
  2. I'd be careful reading this argument tbh - Deleuze's notions of everything being in flux probably doesn't apply to black bodies, this article is worth a read: https://thehistoricalnerds.com/2014/12/16/implications-of-wildersons-afro-pessimism/ It talks about why Deleuzian thinking is probably a solid link, but also line-by-lines Wilderson's arguments. There is a rebuttal offered in the comments, which is probably not worth cutting, but rather transposing into analytics.
  3. You could probably relate the idea of exchangability within an assemblage to the fungibility of the slave?
  4. But, in the meantime, I wrote the 1NR anyway - It'll be the tradeoff DA, then the terror page. 1245 I think. 1NR vs Refugee Ed.docx
  5. **Notice - Due to finals, etc., this round has been postponed for about a week-ish. As of now, there are still plans to complete it.
  6. this implies that the cp doesnt also link to the disad
  7. I had this discussion the other night with some friends. I think yes, impact turns are net benefits to CPs. It solves the aff advantages, other than those that you turn and say are bad. In terms of competition, I think you can get out of almost any perm with "perm links to the impact turns". Just make sure that the text of the CP wouldn't shield the link to the impact turns, ie, if the CP were "The USfg should burn all of its money and tank the economy", then the perm would pretty clearly solve dedev because the UQ would outweigh the aff link in the world of the perm. However, given that you just want deseg as a CP, I don't see an issue.
  8. https://hspolicy.debatecoaches.org/Glenbrook+South/Valiaveedu-Skoulikaris+Neg Can be found here under "DA - Rider - FISA"
  9. They aren't true and are largely incoherent. Politics IRL is a whole lot more complicated than debaters make it out to be, and I think there is a true but trolly argument to be made in favor of fiat solving the link. On the other hand, some judges love politics debates.
  10. 2742 - It'll be the K, the PIC, the Adv CP, the AUMF DA, and then the Culture Adv. Ready for CX, let me know when you're ready for the 1NR Edit: Top of the doc says 2669, ignore that, thats from an earlier word count. 2NC v Refugee Ed.docx
  11. CX: Can you explain the terrorism advantage? Aside from a general rejection of the state, what makes our alt similar to Ghandi? Why does the PIC not utilize institutional change? How is the aff an instance of anarchist pedagogy despite relying on state structures and molding of educational spaces?
  12. Assuming this is about counterplan/plan texts, they're just mandates of the plan. Most affs don't read planks anymore, but it would be something like the following: Planks are a bit more popular with counterplans - Take this States CP for example: They're even more common with advantage CPs: Edit: Or maybe you meant any of these.
  13. A permutation is a test of competition between two advocacies. A perm can't really apply if you're on the neg side, defending the status quo, because that would be like saying "we can do the aff and the status quo at the same time", which is impossible because the aff is a change away from the status quo. Reading a perm on your own K/CP is just unstrategic, because that means there's no trade-off between doing the aff and your CP/K; the aff would just extend it and say that means you should be voting aff because that still endorses the aff's method.
  14. 1NC is 5 off, culture, terror. Agreed to 2750/1650 before round started over DM, I'm at 2692. Ready for CX whenever. 1NC vs Refugee Ed.docx
  15. CX: What does the 1AC define as a refugee, and what causes them to come to the US? What's the current funding for Refugee School Impact Program (RSIP)? Why is more funding needed? Does the plan provide federal funding to schools? Where does the solvency evidence indicate that the RSIP can solve for the issues outlined in the Inherency contention? What does the 1AC define as a terrorist?
  16. If the link card is Novia (spelling?) 5, that card is mostly warrantless. Honestly, I was reading the article minutes before I saw this post. I would read generic impact defense, surveillance checks, some local/state law enforcement checks argument, and a massive "bureaucracy now" UQ claim because that's the only thing the link evidence is contextual to.
  17. you're doing god's work - i look forward to seeing where this goes
