  3. I read a K aff and I hit a revolutions K where they advocate for violently overthrowing the state. Does anyone know how to answer it other than case outweighs?
  4. Hello everyone! I'm new to this forum and I'm doing a presentation on the strategic application of accelerationism as a K. However, I'm very confused on the parts of the K and just the debate strategy in general. I'm kind of unclear on the four parts. Our novice teams are only running one K, and that's the cap k. Most of my knowledge is based on that (and a couple other varsity K rounds I flowed). My current understanding of accelerationism is mostly based on the accelerationist manifesto, and it's that capitalism should be accelerated for the late benefits of technological evolution in order to create a future for a world threatened by the deterimental effects of capitalism, such as climate change and governmental problems. I think I understand the philosophy but I have no idea how it's run as a K. So here goes: 1. Link In the cap k the aff links to capitalism which links to the impacts by supporting capitalist ideas, for example trade. However, accelerationism is about accelerating capitalism for the late BENEFITS. Isn't this good? Does that mean affs who don't support accelerationism are bad because they doom the world by not creating a new future? Idk. 2. Impact The impact is good, right? Technological evolution to save a future. I don't really understand this part because the impact should be the undesirable effects. 3. Alternative I guess this part is pretty clear, that the alternative is to accelerate capitalism in order to technologically evolve and save a world in danger. 4. Framework Framework is how the judge should evaluate the round in my understanding, so in this case a possible fw could be the judge should vote for the team that creates a world post-capitalism. This is all my understanding of accelerationism thus far. We aren't expected to run it or master it, but have a general understanding. It would be greatly GREATLY appreciated if someone could look over and help me in understanding the link and impact! Thank you very much!
  5. Same times as previous, but different sides. We need as many judges as possible! Res = Resolved: Adolescents ought to have the right to make autonomous medical choices.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.)
