Definitely an imperialism K this year. I've also won hypo Ks and a threat con K, along with a random K on propaganda (which turned out to have impacts to both hypocrisy and imperialism).

I ran them on:
JVA (hypocrisy)
Tier 3 (hypocrisy-- don't remember how I linked it, though)
Bush-Style Missile Defense (securitization/threat construction)
FLEX (propaganda)

Probably a good ones to have in a Christian league. ;)

So, what Kritiks do you think would be most helpful for the new Stoa resolution (Resolved: That the United States Federal Government should substantially reform its revenue generating policies)?

I would personally be familiar with The Gift and different forms of biopower (at the very least look up different authors).

If you're not deep in the various forms of literature that criticize capitalism, you deserve to lose lots of rounds.

Unfortunately, with the NCFCA judging pool, you probably won't.

Due to what I believe, I would not like to take a socialistic stance. It would be easy to do though I'm sure.

Do you argue against cases that you believe in?

Marxist critique ≠ advocating socialism. You can deploy a lot of Marx's particular claims, or claims of those who built on his work, without endorsing his larger project.

Once or twice you might've recited the pledge of allegiance, the author of which, Francis Bellamy, was an outspoken socialist. You giving heartfelt voice to words he wrote didn't taint you with any socialist cooties.

I really like mindset K's. I'm not terribly versed in the world of K's, but I constructed one earlier this year for a case that vehemently condemned foreign aid as "dehumanizing." In order to counter that aspect of the case (which was pretty much the slogan of the aff), I did a little research about dehumanization and found some great quotes depicting the true meaning of the word, using the examples of slavery and the holocaust (I know, I know..overused examples, but they really applied!). After running it against the team that wrote the case, they dropped it :D

Anyhow, I'm not sure how legitimate people think they are, but I like them because they remind me why I joined debate in the first place. I joined so that I could learn how to listen and really think about what people were saying, and to understand why or why not I agreed with them. When you look at the worldview or the perspective behind an idea, you can see if it's correct or if it's way off. :)

I wanted to run that K. It's a great language K (technically not a mindset K) that points out the fact that aff bases their entire case upon the misuse of a philosophical-sounding term that must be treated more seriously. Aff can't just de-link by apologizing and avoiding the term in their future speeches because if they forfeit dehumanization, they forfeit their case.

Vague mandates is not a K, methinks.

Ehh...it can be. But it's pretty ridiculous (someone ran it against us last year). Notice the: :roll:


yeah, I noticed all the smileys.
Sorry someone ran that against you. That sounds really frustrating.
I've actually never had a K ran against me. Or a CP for that matter.

Its a legit argument, but not a K. It's called an M-Spec (Mandate specification). Basic shell is as such:

A. Interp
The aff needs to provide a specific enough plan text (PT) that we can link turns, solvency takeouts, and DAs to it.

B. Violation
PT is too vague (explain)

C. Standards
1. Ground (explain)
2. Debatability (explain)
3. Place-holder- Only vote here if they shift and no link our (insert other arguments)

D. Voters
1. Fairness (explain)
2. Education (explain)

You should be able to get that out in about a minute.

Anyways, helpful Ks this year would most def be:
Racism
Feminism

And then spend 5 minutes in the 2AC trying to wipe that dumbfounded look off the poor mom's face; she didn't know what she was getting in to. ; )
also, old bump.
