  1. How does security K propose we deal with threats if we don't securitize? for example, what should we do about terrorism just let them do whatever they want, or is there a way to deal with threats without falsely constructing them.
  2. Need to learn how 2 go for security, some1 please post high-level round
  3. I want to construct my first Kritik 100% from my own cuts and whatnot. Does anyone know anything good authors/sources to start on the construction of a security kritk (AC portrays china as more of a threat than it realistically is in order to justify almost limitless action + need to reevaluate how we understand politics and threats to prevent actual actual escalation). Do I have a proper conception of the kritik? Also- I have heard that Zizek is a fun/interesting kritik to make- would this 1) Be easier and 2) be more competitive as a K?

    Black Fem Help

    I cut a bunch of cards for intersectionality/black feminism (Crenshaw, Broeck, hooks, etc.), and I'm not sure what is necessary for the K. Is feminist intersectionality and black fem 2 different Ks? What card should I use as an alt for Black Fem?
  7. I am currently trying to put together some Security K links for this year's topic. However, I'm having a bit of trouble. Does anybody have any leads? I'd be much obliged.
  8. I have an AFF and Neg that I am interested in trading for other files on this topic for March April. PM me if interested
  9. Howdy y'all... I was wondering if anyone had great cites or ev that answered 'realism inevitable' in the realm of human nature or ingrained into the logic of states, besides something general like Rivkin. General answers to realism/offensive realism are also welcome Like answering this card for example (below) Thanks in advance y'all! Realism inevitableThayer, 04 (Bradley Thayer has been a Fellow at the Belfer Center for Science and International Affairs at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and has taught at Dartmouth College and the University of Minnesota, Darwin and International Relations: On the Evolutionary Origins of War and Ethnic Conflict, University of Kentucky Press, 2004, pg. 75-76) The central issue here is what causes states to behave as offensive realists predict. Mearsheimer advances a powerful argument that anarchy is the fundamental cause of such behavior. The fact that there is no world government compels the leaders of states to take steps to ensure their security, such as striving to have a powerful military, aggressing when forced to do so, and forging and maintaining alliances. This is what neorealists call a self-help system: leaders of states arc forced to take these steps because nothing else can guarantee their security in the anarchic world of international relations. I argue that evolutionary theory also offers a fundamental cause for offensive realist behavior. Evolutionary theory explains why individuals are motivated to act as offensive realism expects, whether an individual is a captain of industry or a conquistador. My argument is that anarchy is even more important than most scholars of international relations recognize. The human environment of evolutionary adaptation was anarchic; our ancestors lived in a state of nature in which resources were poor and dangers from other humans and the environment were great—so great that it is truly remarkable that a mammal standing three feet high—without claws or strong teeth, not particularly strong or swift—survived and evolved to become what we consider human. Humans endured because natural selection gave them the right behaviors to last in those conditions. This environment produced the behaviors examined here: egoism, domination, and the in-group/out-group distinction. These specific traits are sufficient to explain why leaders will behave, in the proper circumstances, as offensive realists expect them to behave. That is, even if they must hurt other humans or risk injury to themselves, they will strive to maximize their power, defined as either control over others (for example, through wealth or leadership) or control over ecological circumstances (such as meeting their own and their family's or tribes need for food, shelter, or other resources).
  10. I am going to nationals and LD and was wondering if anyone knew what would happen on this topic? The popular arguments and any help you can give me. I obviously know the topic pertains to the NSA scandal, but does anyone know what will be popular or where to look for anything?
  11. I will trade heavily for either of these! Preferably with overviews and such, PM me!
  12. i'm looking for this writing, and whenever i search for it, all i get is debate wikis. maybe i just suck at finding cards, but if someone could get me a link to this piece i would greatly appreciate it. Ryan bishop, Professor at the National University of Singapore, “Baudrillard Now: Baudrillard, Death and Cold War Theoryâ€
