  1. So in one of my coaches files he shared with me, there's a very interesting kritik that is meant to be read against affs of personal experience. There is no alternative for it, but it's meant to be read as a case turn. I read it on case against an aff of legalizing undocumented migrants that talked about forced harm and internalized racism. There's only two cards, but in cross-ex, I stumbled a little bit because I didn't quite understand it well enough. My understanding was that the 1AC was simply a forced confession of a story in exchange for the ballot which ultimately trivialized the violence they truly faced. Their answers were that we don't give a sh** about your guilt. The judges said that their answers were good and that we shouldn't be reading those authors if we didn't understand them, but we won on a procedural so it didn't end up mattering. Can someone help explain the argument made by Foucault and Zizek in these cards? I don't want to put the whole thing in the event that someone takes our evidence and I am blamed, but I'll put some excerpts and if anyone could help me understand them, I would greatly appreciate it. First card- Aff is a process of confessional-their demand is an exchange of truth of experience as the price of redemption. Foucault Excerpt 1: The mad would be cured if one managed to show them that their delirium is without any relation to reality. Excerpt 2: Leuret wishes to obtain a precise act the explicit affirmation, “I am mad.” Excerpt 3: To declare aloud and intelligible the truth about oneself – I mean, to confess-has been considered for be a long time in the western world either a condition for redemption for one sins or a essential item in the condemnation of the guilty. Second Card- Their confessional is tantamount to a Stalinist show-trial that locks us all into an unproductive forced choice – their criticism deploys guilt as a means of avoiding a full questioning of privilege. Their argument enforces a kind of metaguilt, implicated by individuals who participate in their own oppression-their project doesn’t allow for the possibility of escape, meaning there is no alternative Zizek Excerpt 1: the subject experiences guilt before the big Other, while anxiety is a sign that the Other itself is lacking, impotent – in short, guilt masks anxiety. Excerpt 2: The more they proclaim their innocence, the more guilty they are!’) therefore contains a grain of truth; the ex-Party cadres wrongfully condemned as ‘traitors’ were guilty in a way, although not, of course, of the crimes of which they were explicitly accused – their true guilt was a kind of metaguilt: that is, it lay in the way they themselves participated in the creation of the system which rejected them Excerpt 3: their condemnation meant that they got from the system their own message in its inverted-true form. Can someone help me understand these cards better? I would really appreciate it, because I think the literature is very interesting but I only understand a small fraction of it. Some key things I don't understand include-"a essential item in the condemnation of the guilty" "Stalinist show-trial" "metaguilt" "their own message in its inverted-true form". Thanks!
  2. Could anyone help me find a card that says ocean development increases biopower/biopolitics Thanks
  3. https://youtu.be/2PCol1ffUWM anyone follow this blog?: http://www.partiallyexaminedlife.com/
  4. I want to write a biopower K aff for this topic. I know it would have been much better last year, but how feasible is it to relate it to this year's topic? Like maybe we criticize biopower exercised by both the US and China? B/c with china's human rights issues i can see some connections. And of course the US has plenty of instances of biopower. It basically would be the reason we reject using the state and our framework is that we provide the best education. Does that all sound reasonable? (I've never written a K before) Can anyone point me to any good authors to read (besides foucault and agamben, both of whom i have read) or be willing to share cards?
  5. So I have seen on here where people have said that Foucault would be applicable on aff and on neg. Now I know that "Surveillance = Biopower" is how he is applicable on aff, but how is his work going to be used as a K on neg? EDIT: Aside from impact and advantage links that risk an obvious link turn.
  6. a Pittsburgh Hegelian replies to Global "Hermeneutics of Suspicion"
  7. I'm working on blocks for a Foucault K, and I'm struggling to understand how you respond to that. Do you say pessimism good? Or we're not pessimistic? Please help
  8. Anybody have any good articles/cards talking about biopower in US CJS/Courts - jury nullification specifically.
  9. https://www.jacobinmag.com/2015/05/camden-obama-police-brutality-black-lives-matter/ : "We should ask if ... much-lauded reforms further entrench and legitimize these same criminal justice institutions...". a Foucault kritik by any other name works as sweet. curriculum vitae: http://las.depaul.edu/departments/international-studies/faculty/Pages/brendan-mcquade.aspx

  12. Hi all, I wanted to read a bit on foucault and biopower before the new topic. Does anybody know of a book/paper that describes foucault and biopolitics/biopower in a nutshell?
  13. This professor has a ton of videos online explaining philosophical concepts/methods: https://www.youtube.com/user/PhilosophicalTechne/videos - including this introduction to Michel Foucault: https://youtu.be/Ua4wrcS9u3A.
  14. 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.

    Biopower Alt

    I'm planning on writing my first biopower K for the new LD topic (I do LD), and need some help with the alt. Most of the alts I've seen are incoherent postmodern vocabulary or some bullshit like "vote neg". Whats the best alt to run to a biopower K (I'm cool with floating PIKs too)
  17. I was wondering if anybody had any electronic surveillance links for a biopower/biopolitics K. Something along the lines of 'the use of electronic surveillance by the state is a method of biopolitical control.' Or any foucauldian lit specifically relating to electronic surveillance. Thanks.
  18. If you'd like to better understand the transition from Marx's critique of capitalism to Baudrillard's, watch these two comedy sketches respectively: Mr. Show's "The Fairsley Difference" (https://youtu.be/tP4yX2rkpBc) and Tim & Eric Awesome Show's "Prices" (https://youtu.be/hJ9yBgTp9UQ). Mr. Show relies on classically anti-capitalist themes: monopoly, false advertising, how small firms are driven out-of-business by corporate chain-stores; prices are still based here on real production and real competition. (There's even a Foucauldian angle to the adoption of surveillance security.) In Tim & Eric's postmodern capitalism, however, prices become pure simulacra entirely disconnected from the real economy. (There's even a Nietzschean angle to accelerating the system to its own destruction.)
