If I was to describe my ideal debate: I think the affirmative should read a topical plan, and the negative should win that said plan is worse than the status quo or counterplan option, the latter of which can be conditional and judge-kicked. I think these debates are better than topicality and theory debates, which should be resolved reasonably, and with intent to preserve substantive debating. Finally, I consider direct judge instruction more than many, and reward it along with clear, organized speaking and evidence comparison.

A lot of debates are not ideal. Et ita fit
