My understanding of the topic: "There are over 550 million firearms in worldwide circulation. That's one firearm for every twelve people on the planet. The only question is: How do we arm the other 11?" - Lord of War (2005)

People who influenced my understanding of debate: Tara Tate, Jon Voss, Tyler Thur, JP, Jake Lee, Cicero, Nimil Patel and DHeidt.

"Policy Debate is increasingly neither... I do not mind when it is both." - Repko

Debate is a persuasion activity - persuade me.

I am one of the few people around that am more convinced with a link overview in why the affirmative causes the link to occur rather than an impact overview. Note that impact calc still plays an important role in my decision calculus. I also put evidence quality in a high standard when looking at questionable evidence post-round.

Conditionality is probably fine, Counterplans that do the plan are probably not.
