Can you have a case that while not having an expert or someone who directly endorses your case, win (S) by saying we solve harms through elementary logic?

Rule 1 of debate: There are no rules aside from the length of speeches, and the length of a lady's skirt.

Mostly.

You don't have to have anybody specifically supporting your plan. Sometimes people will piece together a bunch of different facts and present their own solution to the issue. This has it's weaknesses. The person who says we should pass your plan is called an advocate, and if you don't have one, the other team will complain about it. They rarely win with that argument though. Let me put it this way, if you lose based on advocacy, you were probably going to lose anyway.

my $0.02, if you think of a case that seems like a great idea, but can't find an advocate, you should seriously consider whether or not you should run the case. i'm not going to say that there is 0% chance that you will think of a spectacular plan that nobody else has thought of already, but let's face it, "credentialed" people think about these things way, way, way more than any of us. if they haven't proposed it, chances are there's a reason why. so be very careful about running an unadvocated case, because like GWG said, almost every loss you get will be because the case is not a good idea, not because it is a good idea but you don't have a Ph.D. who says so.

I think that if you can solve the harms with a plan that clearly and logically would solve the problems than you're okay. Though I would recommend finding some solvency evidence if at all possible. It can't hurt and it only helps. :)

What do you guys think about disenfranchising all white people? That could be legit, too. I think there's lots of advocacy for it.
