    Comments: Be more confident and sure of what you are saying, it will help with the general mumbling and stumbling http://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/images/smilies/biggrin.gif Good delivery, add more substance and structure to your presentation http://speechdebate.binghamton.edu/images/smilies/cool.gif

    The decision is for the Opposition: Tyler Keech

    Reason for Decision:

    I think that the debate gets lost between the cohesion of morality and utilitarianism. Also, the negative brings up that util is inherently problematic, because under utilitarianism, we inherently quantify the substance in question. The affirmative doesn't necessarily clarify where this argument stands in relation to where the rest of the case is. At the point where none of this happens, I need to default negative in this round.
