    Round 2 Citations/Overview of Speech


    A. Interpretation: The proposition must specify an advocacy between demand and decry with a specific plan text when trying to access offense for it.

    B. Violation: The proposition did not specify an advocacy.

    C. Standards:

    1) Ground

    2) Strategy skew

    3) Predictability

    D. Voters:

    Disadvantage: The UN is an ineffective agency that will only lead to more harms than actual change
    A. Link:
    1. UN resolutions are wholly ineffective the affirmative has zero solvency

    2. Japan will not abide by a UN Decision and will only feign compliance as seen with the recent whaling decision

    B. Impact: The impact is inaction. The affirmative directly trades off with taking action by giving states an excuse not to make hard choices.

    CP Text: The United States, Canada, Australia, Mexico, Malaysia, Singapore, Chile, Peru, New Zealand, Vietnam and Brune should refuse to sign the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) until Japan bans the capture and slaughter of dolphins in the fishing town of Taiji.

    Observation 1: The negative may advocate a CP.

    Observation 2: I remain competitive by providing more net benefits and by actually providing solvency.

    Observation 3: The CP provides a direct path to solvency that truly fixes the problem.
