Paradigm Statement
Last changed 19 September 2021 10:46 AM PDT

I am an engineering major at UC Berkeley, and did debate all throughout high school and am continuing in college. The styles I have experience in are LD, Parliamentary, and PF

dont call me judge its awko taco "luan (lu-anne) is just fine)

Presentation:

spreading--make sure to flash the case. email chain: luanchuang07@gmail.com

For Novice/non-TOC: Make sure to signpost so I know where you are.

Case wise: *below is mainly for open/novice, TOC do whatever u want*

Morality isn't a real value, if you are going to run it make sure to have topic lit.

I do not flow cross, so if something important happened, make sure to bring it up in your speech.

MAKE SURE YOU DO YOUR IMPACT CALCULUS! If you leave it up to me to decide, I will probably weigh everything wrong and that's no bueno for you.

VOTING ISSUES ARE EXTREMELY IMPORTANT. This is what I will 99% base my decisions on. If one of your voting issues have been completely refuted or turned, it is probably not strategic to only use that issue. Additionally, sometimes have a sole voting issue can be hurtful, for I might not have bought the argument.

Make sure your DA/Adv are all impacted out.

Counterplans, topicality welcome.

LD: yes, it is a values debate, but I am not a "traditional LD" advocate. Furthermore, sometimes losing the framework debate is strategic. You can lose the framework, but still win under your opponent's framework--use time wisely.

PF: please warrant all your arguments, and explain why winning an argument matters.

don't drop your whole case and run double-suicide k. (please) That ruins the educational value of debate, and it is you trying to clutch a win you don't deserve.

If you run 17 contentions just so your opponent loses the will to live, well that's on you buddy. quality over quantity.

Misc.

A good Kritik is always appreciated IF AND ONLY IF you run it correctly. Assume I do not know the topic lit.

If you say *meow in your case I might give you an extra point.

I will buy all types of arguments as long as the evidence is there.

BUT I think disclosure theory is stupid, not a big fan of theory in general prolly wont vote off of it tbh unless its p solid and good

Good luck, have fun, debate well:)
