Number 2 is my favorite for TP. Very solid year with that. All of the LD ones suck.

Topicality is way to hard to define with number 2, it will be Middle East year x7.5. My favorite is option 1 because of its reasonable scope and the fact that there has been a lot of good literature on the subject,it should help us learn a lot about the topic.

We initially called out the troll and then gave in and started trolling on our own ;).

OH MY GOSH I love them. I really wish I was debating next year, these are like the best options ever. :'(

I especially like no. 3. The video gives a great rundown on it.

AND YOUR NCFCA RESOLUTIONS ARE...
Team Policy
1: The United States Federal Government should significantly reform it's policy towards the E.U.
2: The United States ought to significantly reform its International Policy towards one or more countries in North America.
3: NATO should be significantly reformed.

Lincoln Douglas
1: In Government Legislation, Morality ought to be most Valued
2: National Sovereignty ought to be valued above International Law.
3: Actions speak louder than Words.

I am thinking 1 for TP and 2 for LD. Thoughts?

No one cares about the E.U.

Solid. Interesting wording there, 'international policy.' Nice and narrow.

I love the non-US rezs. This one would be fantastic.

Umm, where exactly is the link for these? Still wondering if it's an ongoing troll. If not, a new thread should get started.

I think it's says international so someone doesn't reform U.S. policy towards the United States. But Idk :P.

I don't know if any of these are real or not (looks like they're probably not), but in case they are, here's my two cents worth. :P If anyone can confirm somehow that these are real, I'll split this thread and move it to Resolution Options Discussion. :)

Quote:
1: The United States Federal Government should significantly reform it's policy towards the E.U.

This is not great. The US doesn't really have very many policies towards the EU. If it was "countries IN the EU," that'd be a lot better.

Quote:
2: The United States ought to significantly reform its International Policy towards one or more countries in North America.

Free trade. Illegal immigration. Free trade. Illegal immigration. (BORRRINNNGGG.)

Quote:
3: NATO should be significantly reformed.

This one is epic. Vote for this one if you want real debates, people.

Yup. That's how it was UN year, and it worked beautifully. Very fun debates.

Quote:

NEW FLASH: NCFCA has a LD resolution option that wouldn't result in a stupid, impossible debate comparing two values together! Finally, no one in LD will be forced to make absurd absolute statements that are impossible to support, like "x should be valued about national security."

Quote:
2: National Sovereignty ought to be valued above International Law.

:Vomits: This pretty much epitomizes everything I cannot stand about LD. How on EARTH can you make an absolute statement about this?? Obviously, sometimes you should value NS and sometimes you should value IL. It depends on whether the law in question is a good law or not. The only people who would be right in a debate round with this resolution would be a neg speaker running a balance neg. Guys, please, for the sake of the sanity of poor innocent community judges, do not choose this one.

Quote:
3: Actions speak louder than Words.

This is a factual resolution, not a values resolution. Which is weird. But it could make for a refreshing debate, who knows.

I'm a little bummed that it is coming the year after i graduate... But I'm psyched about getting to judge. Having been on the receiving end of brutal questioning, it should be fun to dish it out hehe.

I'm just hoping enough people participate because 1) moot court is great, and 2) I want it to last more than a year.

Moot court is extremely dependent on having judges who know what they're doing. I'm afraid most people will have a very skewed idea of it if you try to use community/parent judges. It's not about passionate persuasion--it's about a careful consideration of technical legal issues.

Also, how're they scheduling this? A third debate event? Or taking up half a speech pattern?
