SDI 2010 BBHS Positive Peace Critique Positive Peace 1NC The affirmative represents “war” as a singular, bounded event . This ontological distinction between “war” and “peace” ensures the continuation of everyday militarism and violence , turning the case. Chris J. Cuomo , Professor of Philosophy at the University of Cincinnati, 1996 (“War Is Not Just an Event: Reflections on the Significance of Everyday Violence,” Hypatia , Volume 11, Number 4, Fall, Available Online to Subscribing Institutions via JSTOR, p. 30-31) Philosophical attention to war has typically appeared in the form of justifications for entering into war, and over appropriate activities within war. The spatial metaphors used to refer to war as a separate, bounded sphere indicate assumptions that war is a realm of human activity vastly removed from normal life, or a sort of happening that is appropriately conceived apart from everyday events in peaceful times. Not surprisingly, most discussions of the political and ethical dimensions of war discuss war solely as an event—an occurrence, or collection of occurrences, having clear beginnings and endings that are typically marked by formal, institutional declarations. As happenings, wars and military activities can be seen as motivated by identifiable, if complex, intentions, and directly enacted by individual and collective decision-makers and agents of states. But many of the questions about war that are of interest to feminists---including how large-scale, state-sponsored violence affects women and members of other oppressed groups; how military violence shapes gendered, raced, and nationalistic political realities and moral imaginations; what such violence consists of and why it persists; how it is related to other oppressive and violent institutions and hegemonies— cannot be adequately pursued by focusing on events. These issues are not merely a matter of good or bad intentions and identifiable decisions .
