I recently searched on the Internet how to answer Kritiks, and it seems that I am supposed to answer them by using POSTAF. (Perm, Offense, Solvency, Theory, Alt fails, Framework.) My question is: if I hit a Neoliberalism K, can't I just read some Neolib good cards as my aff response? And if I hit Capitalism, can't I just say "Cap Good"? Also, I'd like to know how to tangle the Neg with having to answer the K and not kick out of it. *How do you perm a K? I just thought that was a CP thing.
I'm relatively new to Policy Debate, and at a tournament last weekend there was this person who went Maverick and ran a thing called "whiteout" or an extinction impact turn. Their AC was a plan that baited the Negative to run a disad with an extinction impact, but then instead of refuting the disad they'd impact turn it, claiming that "extinction was good because life is suffering." Also, their NC was composed of a japan disad of the affirmative plan that yielded an extinction impact 100 or so years in the future, followed by a counterplan that would cause extinction "almost immediately." They then ran the same "extinction good because life is suffering" evidence and claimed that they outweighed on timeframe. Although this sounds odd, both the AC tactic of turning extinction and the extinction timeframe argument did well in several rounds and left my partner and I very confused. Does anybody have cards or evidence they could share regarding "extinction good" or an extinction impact turn? I also heard there's some specific philosopher associated with this idea. Thanks
I know that the affirmative can straight turn a DA by either: Using the link (i.e. non-uniqueness + link turn) Using the impact (i.e. impact take-out + impact turn) But as negative, how can you get out of the straight turn? The negative has to go for the straight turn, but is there any chance and/or way of winning the argument?
