    Cap Turns and General Nuances

    Hey everyone, I would greatly appreciate if everyone could give me an explanation of how to answer Capitalism Good Turns. For example, Cap Solves War, Inequality, Poverty, Space, Racism, Warming. all with cards as to why citing aggregate data or whatever else. They also say that the examples of capitalism our cards mention are all pure capitalism, but the US has nuances and regulations of capitalism. How do you defend against those cap turns and other cap arguments? I feel like when I run cap, its a lost cause. Any tech arguments? Sincerely appreciate anything anyone can offer.

    Fun cases and general files

    I haven't been in debate pretty long and go to a pretty small school, so two requests for this community (which i joined a couple weeks ago and found that it is awesome) 1. Anyone have any funny/joke cases and files? Im not planning on reading them in round, i have respect for debate, but I just wanted to look at them and read them 2. Anyone have generic answer files? Answers to really general args that are run on every topic (cap, etc..) it seems like a lot of people have those answers and i dont think i have any sort of access to them THX!

    Kritiks in LD (help)

    Hey guys, I'm trying to learn how to write kritiks as I'm from a pretty progressive area for LD. I know how to do plans, disads, and tradition LD cases, but I have zero experience with kritiks. Can someone explain the format of a kritik, how to debate for and against it, and explain some generic type of k's like cap, anthro, antiwhiteness? Thanks!
  4. My team's decided that its current cap alt has gotten old and needs a fresh card, so it has asked me to cut the new cap alt. However, I haven't had much experience in cutting solvency cards before (I have general experience with research, however). What constitutes a 'good' alt, and what constitutes a 'bad' alt?

    Card explanation

    I'm writing a cap K and need a queer theory link (It's a common LD aff for this topic) and came across the card below (Excuse the formatting). What exactly is it saying? What's the warrant for how capitalist goals are furthered? While concentrating on decentering identity, queer theory succeeds in promoting the goals of global cap that work against the formation of communities or provide the means to destroy those that already exist.Kirsch 6 Max Kirsch (PhD from Florida Atlantic University). “Queer Theory, Late Capitalism and Internalized Homophobia.” Journal of Homosexuality - Harrington Park Press - Vol. 52 - No. ½. 2006. pp. 19-45. Jameson has proposed that the concept of alienation in late capitalism has been replaced with fragmentation (1991, p.14). Fragmentation highlights the it also becomes more abstract: What we must now ask ourselves is whether it is precisely this semi-autonomy of the cultural sphere that has been destroyed by the logic of late capitalism. Yet to argue that culture is today no longer endowed with the relative autonomy is once enjoyed as one level among others in earlier moments of capitalism (let alone in precapitalist societies) is not necessarily to imply its disappearance or extinction. Quite the contrary; we must go on to affirm that the autonomous sphere of culture throughout the social realm, to the point at which everything in our social life–from economic value and state power to practices and to the very structure of the psyche itself–can be said to have become ‘cultural’ in some original and yet untheorized sense. This proposition is, however, substantially quite consistent with the previous diagnosis of a society of the image or simulacrum and a transformation of the “real” into so many pseudoevents. (Jameson, 1991, p. 48) The fragmentation of social life repeats itself in the proposal that sexuality and gender are separate and autonomous from bureaucratic state organization. If, as in Jameson’s terms, differences can be equated, then this should not pose a problem for the mobilization of resistance to inequality. However, as postmodernist and poststructuralist writers assume a position that this equation is impossible and undesirable, then the dominant modes of power will prevail without analysis or opposition. The danger, of course, is that while we concentrate on decentering identity, we succeed in promoting the very goals of global capitalism that work against the formation of communities or provide the means to destroy those that already exist, and with them, any hope for political action. For those who are not included in traditional sources of community building–in particular, kinship based groupings–the building of an “affectional community . . . must be as much a part of our political movement as are campaigns for civil rights” (Weeks, 1985, p. 176). This building of communities requires identification. If we cannot recognize traits that form the bases of our relationships with others, how then can communities be built? The preoccupation of Lyotard and Foucault, as examples, with the overwhelming power of “master narratives,” posits a conclusion that emphasizes individual resistance and that ironically, ends up reinforcing the “narrative” itself.

    Generic Cap Impact D

    Does anyone have any good impact cards/cites to get good defense for this? Are there any "top cards" like how Bostrom is for framing, etc.

    Orthodox Marxism PIK

    Hello, What would the plan text for an Orthodox Marxism PIK look like? Note: I'm not actually going to advocate Marxism as a pragmatic solution, but the alt is to endorse it and create the intellectual opportunity necessary to start a Marxist revolution, not to advocate the revolution itself. I don't know if Marxism is ever run differently, so I just wanted to put that in there.
  8. Here's an article if y'all don't know what happened a couple days ago: http://www.bbc.com/news/world-35918844 Snowden tweeted a lot about it, and I was just wondering what y'all thought about the whole issue in general too.
  9. 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.

    How should I answer Kritiks?

    I recently searched on the Internet how to answer Kritiks, and it seems that I am supposed to answer them by using POSTAF. (Perm, Offense, Solvency, Theory, Alt fails, Framework.) My question is: if I hit a Neoliberalism K, can't I just read some Neolib good cards as my aff response? And if I hit Capitalism, can't I just say "Cap Good"? Also, I'd like to know how to tangle the Neg with having to answer the K and not kick out of it. *How do you perm a K? I just thought that was a CP thing.

    Corporate Surveillance State

    Straight up cards that say something along the lines of "We live in a corporate surveillance state" and "Corporations have a tight grip on government" I mean, I would think they'd be easier to find, but I've looked off for some, but then, I suck at evidence searching. I can't promise anything spectacular in return, but I'll do my best.

    Capitalism Kritic Lesson

    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.

    Marx/Cap Links

    I'm looking for cap/Marx links to Foucault, genealogy, Nietzsche, or anything related. If anyone can point me in the right direction or has anything please help me out. Thank you.
