Blake Debate File Title VBI 2009 Page 1 of 1 COMPETING INTERPS GOOD (__) A. Interpretation – The judge must evaluate theory through a competing interpretations framework B. Standards _____ It's not what you do it's what you justify – Theory is a question of determining the best set of rules for debate. Any other framework fails to take this into account. _____ Reasonability is arbitrary – There's no brightline for what's "reasonable" making it a cry for judge intervention. AND, I don't think they're reasonable – shows how dumb reasonability is. _____ Reasonability is a race to the bottom - by setting a threshold for what's acceptable aff ground, affs will be incentivised to pick interpretations of the topic closest to that threshold since there's no threat of them losing to theory _____ Reasonability forces unstrategic decisionmaking – It forces debaters to run arguments/positions that don't link in order to prove why they aren't reasonable.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
