    Comments: You get drug into a "Policy vs. not policy" discussion-- you don't do a bad job RE: defending your perspective, but could simply say "Yes, I think the UN should do X action. I affirm the res, and the res is the policy". You eventually get there, but it takes awhile I think the demand for a "plan" needs to be thought through more in the context of the demand that the UN decry the dolphin hunt. I think the CP work isn't bad, but you need to do something more than say "we solve better"-- some sort of backlash type arguments would serve you well

    The decision is for the Opposition: Sumin Hwang

    Reason for Decision:

    I think that the question of this debate gets muddy because its hard to tell why mutual exclusivity matters and how I should understand it. Rather than getting stuck on the "rules" of the debate, both debaters need to spend more time explaining to the judge the way to compare the two teams. Why should, for example, the pro have to defend immedicacy? Why should, for example, the Opp not be allowed to agree with some of the resolution? These are crucial questions that I don't have answers for.

    In the end, I vote for the Opp because they have this hypocrisy thing happening, which Lily doesn't really answer. The "greatest good" arguments don't say the greatest good "now", per se, so I'm not sure why we shouldn't decry ourselves first.

    Good debate, y'all!
