  1. Thanks! I've been looking for this for so long :)
  2. I know this is probably a long shot, but does anyone have a pdf of "Kindred Specters: Death, Mourning, and American Affinity" by Christopher Peterson? I will love you forever and thanks in advance
  3. I know this has been brought up a lot of times but I don't think I understand an alternative/method for solvency for hauntology. What's the significance/impact of the present being "haunted" by the specters of the past? Is there a method? Is it linked to Derida's deconstruction? What about in terms of specters of X instead of just capitalism? Books/articles/websites that break things down really well? I'm really sorry for the number of times this has been brought up, but I don't really understand hauntology and I didn't want to necrobump an old post. Thanks in advance
  4. Thanks, like I said I'm really new to this lit. Any suggestions for an alternative?
  5. Hi all, So I've been working on a phallocentrism aff recently but I've been struggling to find impact and alternative cards. It's the first time I'm reading up on literature like this so can someone point me in the right direction? What exactly are alternatives of phallocentrism and what are impacts to begin with? Thanks in advance!
  6. Thanks so much for the articles! They're perfect for this aff i'm working on.
  7. Do either of you have a copy of this article that you'd be willing to share? Or do you know where I could potentially find the article without having to pay?

    Hi! I've sortof heard about other people running an anthro k in my circuit, but i'm not entirely clear on what it is. What is it exactly? Whats the usual alt? What does it mean to be "anthropocentric"? What authors should I read up on to learn more about/cut cards for an anthro k? What would be a good way to respond to an anthro k? Where can I cut good cards in response to an anthro k? Thanks!
  9. This is probably a really novice question, but what should one do if keyboard shortcuts don't work with verbatim?
  10. Thanks this clears up a lot!
  11. I've heard this tossed around a lot but what exactly is "skepticism"? Is it connected to externalism? Or how we gain knowledge? Is there a place that provides a really good beginners explanation to it? Who writes about it? How is it connected to determinism more specifically, or error theory? I'm really unclear with this so sorry for all these questions. Any help would be really appreciated
  12. Any ideas for more neg ground? I can't really think of anything.
  13. Any ideas for more neg ground? I can't really think of anything.
  14. I'm still sortof a novice, so what exactly did Kant say? What are good books to read to understand him/ cut cards from? Is he related to util or deont? How would a framework of his be justified? Any help would be appreciated.
  15. Thnx so much this clears up a lot
  16. Thnx and how do we answer their advantages specifically tho? I understood advantages to be more abstract like poverty or disease?
  17. I really can't remeber anything about plan/counterplans. Whats their general structure? The only things I remember are plan text and advantages for plans and netbenfits for counterplans but what else? Whats the purpose of each? How would I respond to either kind of case? To clarify, all their impacts are post-fiat, right? I really can't remember anything about this case structure, so any help would be greatly appreciated.
  18. Hi! I've been hearing about security ks a lot recently but, what are they actually? What's the general gist of the argument? Whats the alt? What authors should I read up on? Any help would be awesome
  19. Can someone explain afro-optimism and just what's its general message? Is it the opposite of afro-pessismism? Any authors/books I should read to learn more on the literature? Is it relatively common? Sorry about all these questions, i'm still relatively new to ks. Any help would be appreciated
  20. What's a relatively affordable, good laptop to buy for debate and why? When looking for a laptop for debate, what exactly should I be looking for? I know it needs a decent amount of battery life, but how much RAM, etc?
  21. Thanks, this is going to help a lot!
  22. Hi! I want to practice flowing more since im still a little subpar at it. Who are some fast spreaders to listen to? I'd preferably like more LD debaters to flow. I'd appreciate any help I can get
