  3. Hi! I'm looking for a Process K and some other stuff to run against an interesting Cthulu aff that will be at state, which basically affirms finding Cthulu but then goes on to say Lovecraft is the hero of OOO and says that's crucial to change politics and all, so other stuff would be nice. I have a homecut D&G file (extensively blocked) and a bunch of other stuff to trade.

    Foucault K

    There are 2 files on open ev, the Foucault K I'm interested in reading at my next tourney. It talks about how the Aff's piecemeal curtailment of surveillance normalizes the surveillance state and generates acceptance of surveillance by the private sphere (i.e. Snapchat getting your contacts). Biopower impacts- I think it is really good, but for the alt. There are 3, a "reject the 1AC alt that I will never run," a "take a politics of resistance," and a Faoucailtian "genealogy" alt that I don't understand. I don't think any of the 3 are good b/c they make no change about the status quo surveillance state, and I don't get them too well. Anyone have suggestions for new Alts or care to explain how to make the current ones good/more understandable. Anyone care to explain the genealogy alt?

    I've been hearing things through the grapevine about a code-switching critique. From what I can understand, it's using a combination of black vernacular and standard English to make the activity more appealing to minorities. Can anyone explain it a bit more or find a file on it?

  15. Hello All, I'm planning to run the Linguistic Imperialism Kritik from UMich this year, and was wondering whether you could think of any CPs that are compatible with this kritik. The kritik can be found here: https://docs.google.com/viewer?a=v&pid=sites&srcid=ZGVmYXVsdGRvbWFpbnx1bWljaGRlYmF0ZXxneDo3Mjk3NGViNTkwMjQxOWQy If not, can anybody think of a good kritik-cp combination that works for this year? (I know that cap with an alt of historical materialism and any cp can be run, but I don't particularly like cap). Thanks, AmAsKh

    Could someone explain to me Heidegger's overall thesis? I've heard ArGogate has a pretty good explanation somewhere but the search bar is broken and I couldn't look it up. What articles/books do you start with if you want to get into this form of lit?

    Does discourse truly solve?

    When I was forming an answer to Alt doesn't solve for the K, I came to thinking, "Does this discourse doesn't solve argument apply to the 1AC?" Because the 1AC is engaging in discourse, so that must mean that the 1AC also does not solve. Is this right, or am I extending this beyond regular perceptions? Or is there something that says that philosophical discourse is ineffective and policy discourse, and passing of the 1AC, solves?
  19. I am trying to run an Assemblage Kritik against Afro-pessimism teams on the Aff, but I don' really get the philosophy, could somebody explain to me what the thesis of the theory is as well as how it would pertain to critical race aff, Thank you

    Kritik of Topicality

    Running/Responding to K's?

    Lately, my team has been doing practice rounds to prep my partner and I for an upcoming tournament. All the varsity debaters on my team, however, don't debate in the same style that the people I hit usually do. One major difference is that 1) They run k's, and 2) They spread (irrelevant, but it helps describe what kind of people I hit.) So, most of the things I've been dropping to are K's. So how does one effectively respond to a K? How does one have offense to a K? I haven't run a K yet, but I know the parts to it; I would really like to run one (that isn't cap) at a circuit where the majority of the judges can comprehend K's (not UIL). Can someone also explain what "the story of the link" means? Also, theory. I could use some help with the gist of theory, too. Thank you in advance!
