    Planless Aff?

    So, I compete in a primarily stock/comms area and am interested in running a K-Aff. I found one that I like but it doesn't have a plan. I'm sure this is a novice question but how would I go about running a case without a plan? Also, how do I defend T? How does the USFG substantially reduce anything?

    How to answer generic K links

    Hello folks, When I am running a policy aff, especially a soft left one, how do I answer generic Kritik links like the aff uses USFG or the aff is white saviorism or links from Antiblackness teams that we don't centre our discourse around black people . The way I have been doing in the past is either reading a bunch of state good cards or at least in this topic, say it's negative state action so we are taking power away from the state/ departure from the status quo. Are there any analytical responses or cards/ authors i can cut to answer them? Thanks

    Connolly card??

    I heard about a card by an author named Connolly in an HS Impact podcast, and I've been trying to find the author/article it's from so I can cut it, but I haven't had any luck because it's not on the files I've looked at and there are multiple authors named Connolly who write about the same thing. The card's a defense to set col/antiblackness/any other k that presents a theory of how the world operates by saying (from what I inferred in the podcast) that there are no overarching social theories. Has anyone heard of this card, or can give me the article it comes from? It's possible that it comes from William E. Connolly, but he's published multiple books and I'm not sure which one it would come from.
  4. Hi Everyone! If you've seen much of my content you might know that I am the owner and Director of Debate at the Digital Debate Camp. We are an online camp that aims to replace the pedagogical function of the traditional camp structure by utilizing online education strategies. We function the same as a regular normal camp in theory - there are lectures, practice speeches, and tons of 1-on-1 instruction (but more on that later). While we can't quite recreate the special feeling of a summer immersed in debate surrounded by peers, we also know that access to a traditional camp is often far outside the means of most debaters. Because we can sidestep the fixed costs of housing etc. the Digital Debate Camp is priced at a modest $400. When I was in high school my family couldn't come close to affording a top camp without significant financial aid, and because we heavily privilege accessibility, we maintain an aggressive aid program with an enormous success rate. We don't think we can eclipse the formal camp structure, but we have a lot to offer. Our camp is quite long - we run from June 1st to August 1st. Second, we offer more 1-on-1 instruction than any other camp I know. Our instructors offer dozens of office hours a piece each week, ensuring someone will always be available when you are for practice speeches, argument development, file critique, or whatever else you may want out of an instructor. We instruct LD, PF, and Policy debate. We are also specially attuned to novice debate, from middle school on up. You can find out more at our new, updated website: www.digitaldebatecamp.com If you have any questions, I'd love to take them here, or you can contact me directly through our website. Note to mods: I've paid to advertise on the site every time I've been prompted. The website owner can feel free to take advertising fees for this summer from my residual evazon balance.

    Kritiks for next year

    Do y'all have any idea what Kritiks will be good next year? I want to get to know one very well for next year, and I figure that if I start learning and reading now I will be much better off than if I only read over the summer.

    Does this kritik already exist?

    So I was wondering if a kritik of this nature already exists under another name. I am calling it the "RNK" (right now kritik) or the "Mindfulness kritik." Basically, we kritik the other team for being focused on the past or future, so anything that has impacts outside of just the round, saying that focusing on the past or future is bad, and that we should focus on the present, the only time we are alive. In-round dehumanization is the impact. Any thoughts on the argument? Does this kritik or a similar one already exist? What is it called if it does? Thanks! -Taute

    K Aff vs. DA

    I was wondering what the best argument is when running a critical aff and someone runs a da and says extinction trumps morals. What should I say?
  11. kylerbuckner

    *edit
  12. Anyone have schopenhauer or normativity kritik willing to trade?

    Poll: Science Diplomacy K

    I've found some interesting literature criticizing the idea of using science for diplomacy as well as some literature criticizing the specific term "science diplomacy" as well as some literature criticizing the concept of diplomacy in general. I've been toying with the idea of trying to produce a full fledged file on this subject, but don't want to waste time researching this if there isn't adequate demand. Please give me your opinions on these questions, and feel free to ask questions or make comments in this thread. Keep in mind that I'm only gauging interest at this stage, there is not yet any completed file. Please keep your answers as accurate as possible. It might be tempting to use this poll in an effort to motivate me to produce the file faster or to lower my prices. But I won't create this file unless I feel that I have adequate time to invest in it and I will be able to make a reasonable amount of money from my efforts, so any manipulations will likely backfire. This isn't a commitment and I urge you not to treat it like one. A rough guess will do. Thanks for your feedback.

    FW Against a K

    I've been told that the best 2AC FW to read is "evaluate the consequences of the plan against the institutional adoption/enactment of the competitive alternative." Is this the best aff framework? What is the best wording of this FW? How exactly does this framework make sure that they have no access to K tricks, ensure fairness, or education? Or Reciprocity?

    Code-switching

    I've been hearing things through the grapevine about a code-switching critique. From what I can understand, it's using a combination of black vernacular and standard English to make the activity more appealing to minorities. Can anyone explain it a bit more or find a file on it?
  20. Hello! I'd like an explanation of these two concepts and how they relate to Heidegger's concept of dasein, please. I'm reading him rn, and it is a really difficult concept for me to grasp, seeing as for some reason, whenever I look up "temporality vs temporality", literally no website offers a good, concise, definition. (I'm looking for a paraphrase, too. Please don't just respond with Heidegger's definiton of both). Thanks. Edited for language.

    BRAND NEW Identity Politics Article

    I've been trying to find a way to argue against teams running identity politics. My old coach told me about a new article that's on fire and DESTROYS identity politics in debate. It's brand new evidence from Ritter 2016, he kritiks identity politics under competition rules and gives five detailed reasons why teams engaging in identity politics for the ballot are actually disempowering minority and disenfranchised communities. The article is available at: http://theforensicsfiles.com/national-journal-of-speech-amp-debate.html

    Heidegger/Tech bad Ans

    Everyone is talking about running DnG (nomadic args), anthro, and Heideggarian tech bad ev Ks next year. Is the generic answer file to using tools to advance the capabilities to the human race just going to be Baudy prioritizing self to self reels over self to nature? Can people just throw out some new ideas for answers to these individually? *Disclaimer: I know these Ks aren't carbon-copies of each other
