Hello, Cross-X. I am wanting to try some minor K debate so that I can have a better understanding of what I will be facing at Nat Quals. I was directed at either learning Anthro or Cap, so I choose Cap 'cause Anthro is really generic and not very strong in round. Simply put, my partner would waste his breath in the 1NC and the K wouldn't make it past the 2NC. However, I am pretty new to CX, and don't completely understand how a K functions in round. So, my question is how do you correctly run a K and where do I need to go to get more understanding on Cap Bad. Any additional info would be helpful. Thanks in advance.
I know novices will do things like spread, run CPs and DAs, but are there any other kinds of advanced arguments novice LDers will run? Ks, plans, theory spikes (one time my friend gave a novice a 17 for running a theory shell against a kid who was absolutely clueless), ROTB/J, T, skep, etc? Although I've never seen or heard of novices running these things (although apparently the novice who won Big Lex ran a "K"), I don't see why they don't use little things like presumption, its not that hard to understand. Also, I'm talking about the national circuit mainly.
So, I want to make an economic aff that argues we need to increase and reform our current business plan with China. However, the BIT essentially does this anyways- and its supposed to be "in thew works/close to passing." Is there any way aorund this? Maybe my aff extends the bit? Encourages the bit? reforms the bit?
