 OPPOSITION
 Resolutional
Analysis:
Background
information
/
story
leading
into
a
negative
statement
of
the
 resolution.
Be
sure
to
tell
the
judge
how
OPP
will
win
the
debate:
a)
by
showing
the
GOV
does
 not
uphold
their
value,
b)
by
showing
that
there’s
a
more
important
value,
OR
c)
by
showing
that
 the
two
things
being
compared
are
equal
(only
for
x
is
better
than
y
resolutions)
 
 If
you
choose,
 a)
GOV
does
not
uphold
their
value.
You
need
to
point
out
how
GOV’s
contentions
do
not
 apply
value
to
resolution.

 b)
there’s
a
more
important
value.
You
need
to:
 1)
present
a
more
important
value
and
tell
us
why
it’s
more
important
 2)
present
counter‐contentions
(structured
like
contentions)
to
support
your
more
 important
value
 c)
both
things
are
valued
equally.
You
need
to
present
counter‐contentions
that
support
 their
equality.
