  1. Hey y'all, Has anyone run into the Banned Books affirmative? Someone is running it in my circuit and I was wondering if any of y'all had any ideas for possible unique/interesting/winning offcase positions. T will be a big one of course, but possible DA's are a bit less obvious. (At least to me). Here's the plan: - The United States Federal Government should substantially curtail its surveillance and censorship of literature and publications in public universities and secondary schools. - Enforcement is guaranteed by the Department of Education. We claim the right to fiat. Have any questions, just ask.- Durable fiat - This is will be passed through congress and then enforced by the doe - We are banning banned books and striking articles from school-funded publications unless they pass the Miller Test (which defines obscenity). The Miller test was developed in the 1973 case Miller v. California.[2] It has three parts: - Whether "the average person, applying contemporary community standards", would find that the work, taken as a whole, appeals to the prurient interest, - Whether the work depicts or describes, in a patently offensive way, sexual conduct or excretory functions[3] specifically defined by applicable state law, - Whether the work, taken as a whole, lacks serious literary, artistic, political, or scientific value.[4] - The work is considered obscene only if all three conditions are satisfied. Thanks, Noah
