Which ever one would make LDer's lives miserable. :P

No. I don't want to be miserable next year.

Most likely. I am going to be super busy with other classes next year, and LD requires less work.

Resolved: Vigilantism is justified when governments fail to uphold the law.
Resolved: Economic sanctions are morally unjustifiable.

I like those two best. I'll just never get enthusiastic about the "is undervalued"/"ought to be more highly valued" topics; to me, they've just got this huge conceptual hole in them, even if debaters think up work-arounds. And some of the others are thinly disguised policy topics.

Resolved: The public's right to know ought to be more highly valued.


I kind of like this one. But I feel like it might be well served by a qualifier. Ex: "Resolved: The public's right to know ought to be more highly valued in the area of national security."

Quote:
Resolved: Liberty ought to be valued above security.


I like this one too. The topic is cliché. But the resolution hasn't been done before (at least, not in the home-school leagues.) Although, it is a bit broad (does financial security fall under the rez?) A qualifier might be beneficial here too, I'm just not sure how it might look.

Quote:
Resolved: Vigilantism is justified when governments fail to uphold the law.


Now this one looks pretty great. While it's, unfortunately, not in the "X should be valued above X," I think it could absolutely provide for some great debates regarding how society responds to the power of government (or the lack there of.) It very much reminds me of an old NFL resolution. There's a video of one of those debates on Youtube*. I found it very enjoyable.

Quote:
Resolved: The United States Federal Government ought to take a more prominent role in foreign affairs.


This is certainly very policy-esque. I could see many rounds practically discarding the values and focuses the debate on the net-benefits side of things. I'm not sure if that is good thing or a bad thing. But it would certainly be a significant change up.

Now that the resolution options have been announced, direct all discussion to NCFCA Res choices up.
