|Comments:||Proposition- You need to address your lack of a time frame; spent too much time in last speech on things that didn't matter. If you're going for the Godwin argument and expect to win on it, you need more analysis and really need to go all in on it. Pay attention to voters that the other side lays out.||Opposition- Extremely scripted. If you're going for voter on vagueness of plan, it should show actual abuse. Here, you had plenty of things to argue. W/ your anthro/imperialism args, I don't know if you're proposing a CP or advocating for a critique- it tends to shift a bunch throughout your speeches.
You go for both arguments in the end, so you should probably explain how they are not mutually exclusive, or just go for one.
The decision is for the Opposition: Mary Kathryn Howard
Reason for Decision:
Voted for the opposition only because the proposition didn't show how he solved; in the final speech, he failed to answer opposition's 3 reasons why aff plan doesn't solve, so I should assume that it doesn't actually solve anything.
