Drew Bjorklund Paradigm

I debated for four years in PA and a little bit of national circuit.  

 

If you're affirming, please ground normative claims.  I will evaluate all impacts through a framework that is either won or both debaters seem to kind of implicitly agree on.  Please weigh your arguments.  

 

You can spread but I'm pretty out of practice.  Please slow down and clear up when I yell 'clear.'  I'll do this twice before deducting speaks.

 

I'm not a good theory judge.  Default to reasonability (sorry) and drop the arg (double sorry).  Obviously you can win other positions.

 

I will not assume that certain arguments are worse than others.  I will not automatically reject people for death good or racism good arguments.  They are easy to beat, but I won't just assume it if someone puts an argument on the flow and it goes unanswered.  

Performative positions sure just win the ROTB and take that and ROJ arguments seriously.  

 

Most importantly please be kind to one another.  This is just an activity.  I will not tolerate bullying or behavior that makes people feel personally unsafe.  You will lose if you are actively unkind.  

 

I love philosophy and would be happy to talk about it to anyone who wants to.

I'll answer any questions before the round.
