  1. How do you kick your alt and go for the links as independent disads in a round?
  2. I know a perm is like a do both, do the plan then all non-competitive parts of the CP/ALT. But what IS a Perm? how does it interact with the Alt or CP and net benefits? How do you create a good perm and defend it? How do you defeat a perm? (Lol, I normally just drop the perm and lose on it ) Also, what is a severance perm and what are the different types of perms?
  3. I don't need pages and pages of explanation, just a brief one will do. If y'all could also explain what to say against it, that be really helpful.
  4. ok, so this is probably a supes stupid question, but would a non-unique da with an alternative (framed like a K) be legit? Or would you just have to concede presumption, lay out impacts of the squo and plan, and run a cp?
  5. My alt is essentially an argument that the opponent is engaging in a bad act, and we need to do "X," I know its pretty straightforward, but I know people who add more nuance to this form of a K. Ive heard of justifications for why it needs to start in round, or maybe some ROB argument. Anyone have any ideas or braod cards that go with this type of alt?

    LD advice

    Ok so I'm an LDer and fell in love with the K at camp. However, I'm essentially a lone wolf and don't have much resources, so I'm deciding to invest my time in working on one solid K file. Which do you think is the most strategic to read - in terms of how many people prep it, how easy it is for opponents to understand, how many generic links there are, and how I can preclude the AC. Right now, I'm think of starting an OOO file, but feel free to change my mind.
  8. What are cards that I can use to debate specific alts for any variation of afropess. Like fugitivity, wilderson, etc. If you list an author and tell me to cut his/her's, I probably won't have any idea what that is. If you want to, I'll trade you for it.

    Cap Alt

    When running cap, what alternative do you think works best?
  11. 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?
