PantherPryde posted a topic in Other Forms of DebateHas anyone tried using any arguments in their cases about this topic involving xenotransplantation as an alternative to organ procurement, particularly Negative? How would you argue against it on Affirmative? I'm thinking about using it as an argument for one of my contentions on my Negative case. Would it be good to use, or is it a terrible idea?
This Summer I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a debate camp in East Texas. I attended many lectures over critical arguments, but one stood out above the rest. The coach was talking about critical theory/framework that the affirmative team could run for "ks bad" and the such. An argument I liked a lot was that critical arguments bad for education/destroys debate. The coach wrote an author on the board and told everyone in the lecture that he had many good articles that said basically there was a direct correlation between critical arguments increasing and students quitting debate. I, for the life of me cannot find the word.doc that contained this authors name. Does anyone know any good authors for theory arguments such as this? Any help would be much appreciated!
It can be for any reason, be it applicability to real life, a strategic move, or anything else. Mine is the role of Gender Identity in International Relations, mostly because it matters, but also because it matters. (Thanks for this Snarf!) My second are ballot commodification Kritiks, because it keeps people from abusing debate as a society.
