Midterms and states


Best Answer TheSnowball, 12 March 2018 - 05:19 PM

States CP doesn't link to Congressional midterms because the public doesn't perceive the counterplan as a partisan federal education agenda.

New Affirmatives are good because disclosure results in pre-scripted debates that lack innovation and privilege teams with the most resources. The Negative is forced to prepare for a wide variety of possible Affirmatives and adapt to the one at hand. New Affirmatives promote a view of topic education as a set of mechanisms for and areas of education reform rather than a constellation of "1ACs that exist." Go to the full post

This cross-ex is taking too long.

Kafka 25 (Franz, Novelist, Translated by David Wyllie, "The Trial", 1925) //Snowball

K. was informed by telephone that there would be a small hearing concerning his case the following Sunday. He was made aware that these cross examinations would follow one another regularly, perhaps not every week but quite frequently. On the one hand it was in everyone’s interest to bring proceedings quickly to their conclusion, but on the other hand every aspect of the examinations had to be carried out thoroughly without lasting too long because of the associated stress. For these reasons, it had been decided to hold a series of brief examinations following on one after another. Sunday had been chosen as the day for the hearings so that K. would not be disturbed in his professional work. It was assumed that he would be in agreement with this, but if he wished for another date then, as far as possible, he would be accommodated. Cross-examinations could even be held in the night, for instance, but K. would probably not be fresh enough at that time. Anyway, as long as K. made no objection, the hearing would be left on Sundays. It was a matter of course that he would have to appear without fail, there was probably no need to point this out to him. He would be given the number of the building where he was to present himself, which was in a street in a suburb well away from the city centre which K. had never been to before.
