    Yes, it was a good debate indeed. Thank you William and Robert.

    Please defer to previous speech citations as well.

    Counter Plan too similar:

    Responsiveness to opponent: 4 4.9
    Identification of key points: 4.5 4.8
    Comments: Your speeches are very good and very compelling, but Will kicks out of the Counter-plan at the top of the flow and then goes for two morality disads instead, which you don't answer. Means I have to vote neg. Spend less time on theory and more time winning the link and impact analysis of the arguments you go for.
    Aside from that, good job.

    The decision is for the Opposition: William Cheung

    Reason for Decision:

    I vote neg on the Normativity flow and the Baudrillard 'nature' flow. Final aff speech drops both arguments to instead focus on a conceded CP. I could also vote on the Nihilism flow but don't because I'd like to think something might exist.
