    Neg Ground?

    Yeah - I definitely that this is true. Neg ground now IMO has become doodyty Cp's w/ Internal Net Ben, Parole CP Internal Net ben, Base, And K's. I think the lack of neg ground may actually push more policy oriented teams to attempt to learn K's. That is at least what has been happening at my school.

    What the Hecky is an Academy DA

    Like you'd have to cut it yourself - And like I said earlier Harney and Moten are really good authors for this

    What the Hecky is an Academy DA

    Correct me if I'm wrong - but I'm assuming that this is coming from a round where you were against a K aff - Basically an academy DA/K is a criticism of the way that the affirmative operates in academia/the university. It is an alternative theory of power to explain what happens when the affirmative is introduced into a debate setting and what that means and what it means to be traded for a ballot. Depending on what type of path you are thinking of going impact wise there are a bunch of links. One example is Co-option. The aff gets co-opted by academia defanging it of its radical potential while providing the farce of change in order to further violence. Other examples include commodification, the Spending of some type of social guilt etc. Basically you gotta find an author you get and understand that Theory of power and just be able to explain what that means for the debate and the aff. I usually would put this as a Case turn to the aff on the case flow. The author that I enjoy the most to make this type of argument is Moten and Harney because they talk a lot about academia/the commons vs the undercommons and professionalization yada yada yada.

    Settler Colonialism Help

    You want to win a link - Why does the affs method necessitate violence against indigenous folx. And if your reading a good alt, not using the state does not mean they can resolve the violence you criticize

    Cap Alternatives

    One of my personal favorites are harney and moten Undercommon Planning alts that talks about challenging the type of pedagougical framework the aff proposes. Then really if you win the Framework debate and frame the alt as a rejection of that type of scholarship in favour for your type of planning that should pick up the W. But another more edgy and a little more Idpol based alt comes from Gumbs talking about Poetry and "those of us on the shoreline" as a method of disrupting the neolib. I know these authors are a little more Idpol based but I think that if you want a more nuanced Cap K this is the way to go ?

    Neolib and Dedev?

    I think the biggest query most of our coaches and lab leaders had at camp was the similarity in these positions with the Uniqueness claims of Dedev and cap inev collapse. Our lab leaders said that it gives the aff easy Cross apps that reading smth else doesn't do
