  1. I am very new to theory arguments, I knew a little about them tell I did mass research on them for the past couple of days because of my surgery. Anyways if permutations are just theories in policy who's to say the negative cannot perm. I read up and clarified my knowledge of a perm I think at least, and I have come to understand they are used to show how the negs harms should not be applied as an argument based on the grounds that they can be solved by just combining both plans. Especially a article in 2005 I read from some guy ( I could pull up author if you want and link) stated that perms started from some essay talking about the theory of a perm argument in like the 80's. Anyways he argued you should argue against the neg after you perm them because a perm doesn't mean you will do it literally its just a way to show the judge that you can easily solve there harms as I stated before. But what is stopping a neg cp or k from perming a aff for the same reason a aff would? These are some questions I have that I would appreciate if someone more advanced cleared it up because I started to think about making neg perm argument but I know I need peer review before I give it actual consideration. Thanks
  2. So I run neg against a local team and they always run the perm - methodological pluralism. The specific tag is "Perm – methodological pluralism combines multiple schools of thought to reclaim IR as emancipatory praxis and avoid endless political violence." How do you answer this? Can you say they sever out of advocating for their own plan text? I specifically ran cap and security k against this team, both times losing on this perm. Anything will help!!

    How to execute a good 2AR

    Hello there, I've been debating for 2 years now, but come from a team that has little to no coaching staff for policy (Our squad is mostly LD and Public Forum), so a lot of formalities and small execution tactics and styles are never explained really to us well. That being said, next year will be my first year taking on the role of the 2AR - Note, I run kritikal race affs every round What makes a good 2AR? How should the structure of a 2AR look like? Case on top? Bottom? Should I spend a lot of time on framework vs case (assuming fw is read) Just general things really Any advice or general execution tips at all would be greatly appreciated. I understand, a lot of it depends on the round itself. Thanks

    2 questions for LD

    First, I am wondering how the neg would respond to the aff trying to perm the alt? I.E aff runs arguments that very clearly relate to capatalism but perms the alt that socialism is the answer OR, and more to my inquiry, if the neg runs a k on the langauge/framing the aff uses as morally bad and the aff either perms and says "aff will just adopt alt/fix language/paradigm." I see this as kinda unfair bc it isnt like a perm to a cp; it is literally the aff realzing they lost on the k and using their own concession as a way to dismiss the k. Also, can the neg run a ROB in the 1nc? Seems kinda abusive, bc the aff never gets real chance to engage?
  7. I am noticing forums on CrossX in theory talking about perf con. What is the difference, if there is one, on con and perf con?

    Theory on a K?

    I was wondering if running theory shells on kritiks in general seems like a plausible strat? I saw a novice round where this girl beat a k by arguing it was an "unfair" stance because she had no choice to fall under a capitalist paradigm/it was non-unique. I know ks dont need to be unique/anything can link into a k- but im wondering if its a possible aveneue if you're stuck. I think its especially intresting when people run "inherent ks" (i.e "The AFF links automatically per the reoslution)
  9. So I know OSPEC is a pretty shitty thing to run but a team in my circuit is running something way too specific

    Going for 50 State Fiat Bad

    A couple of questions: 1. How do I answer "states check the word 'federal' in the resolution"? My C/I has been to read 1 state and then read spillover, but I've been having a bit of trouble on this argument. 2. How do I answer "Fed vs States is good on edu topic" I've been saying to read the federalism disad, but any other tips could be helpful.
  13. So, I'm a lone wolf doing LD on the national circuit, and I heard that the best ways to succeed are to a) get really good at theory and b)specialize in something. So I'm just wondering, how do I figure out what I specialize in? And do any of you know any good resources for learning the nuances of theory/T debate?

    Mao K

    Hey everyone, So a while ago, we lost a round against the "Chairman Mao K" by Milpitas DP Here's the round report from my wiki, we were aff 1AC- Kritikal Middle Passage 1NC- FW/ T/Race Binary K/ Chairman Mao K/ Batman K/ Case 2NR- FW Chairman Mao K Can someone explain what the Mao K even says, I was confused in round, and we apparently misunderstood the K and made it worse for us. Judges said the Mao K was a major solvency deficit to the aff
  15. Who's planning on going to XDI this year? Also, to people who have gone to Xylum before, how was your experience while you were attending the camp? Xylum has a reputation for being very critical-heavy, is this true, or does the camp diversify its argumentative variety?

    Running/Responding to K's?

    Lately, my team has been doing practice rounds to prep my partner and I for an upcoming tournament. All the varsity debaters on my team, however, don't debate in the same style that the people I hit usually do. One major difference is that 1) They run k's, and 2) They spread (irrelevant, but it helps describe what kind of people I hit.) So, most of the things I've been dropping to are K's. So how does one effectively respond to a K? How does one have offense to a K? I haven't run a K yet, but I know the parts to it; I would really like to run one (that isn't cap) at a circuit where the majority of the judges can comprehend K's (not UIL). Can someone also explain what "the story of the link" means? Also, theory. I could use some help with the gist of theory, too. Thank you in advance!

    Theory Spikes Help

    I have a pretty abusive aff (polls), and I haven't lost a single round with it so far in novice but I'm going varsity soon at a tournament and I figured I need to prepare for theory being read against it. I have a drop args on T/theory spike already (see below) and I was wondering what I can do to pre-empt theory. I quite literally learned theory yesterday (I knew the basics before that, but I actually legitamately learned it yesterday). First piece of theory I've ever written: Drop the arg on theory and T because the timeskew in the 1AR makes it impossible for me to cover both theory/T and substance, its key to fairness since substance is the only way for me to win this debate. It’s unreciprocal and unfair if the neg can win the round by mooting my only advocacy with theory/T or on any of their advocacies. Even if I’m being unfair, the fact that I can’t fully cover in the 1AR the multiple independent places the neg could have for you to vote outweighs any advantage I may or may not have. I do LD by the way.

  23. One of my debater buds told me it was severing out of the timeframe because they don't pass at the same time and also made the Alt and plan noncompetitive, but I wouldn't qualify him as a reliable source.
