Jan/Feb LD Resolution Announced

From the National Forensic League Website:

Resolved: Rehabilitation ought to be valued above retribution in the United States criminal justice system.

  • Mathew Pregasen

    Well obviously its valued above in any legal dictionary. Its alphabetically prior.

    • Mathew stop telling everyone about what we are running aff it’s a secret

  • Noah Thaler

    PIC: Retribution for all except juveniles / animals / terrorists / individuals in need.

  • I’m disappointed this topic was chosen, because I was excited to hear debaters make creative, innovative arguments that I had never heard before.

  • Scott Phillips

    Movement to keep debating Nov/Dec topic?

  • Rebar Niemi

    at this point three US spec ought topics in a row = collusion or a strong voting bloc.

    anyone who voted in the bloc, care to explain the reasoning?

  • Rebar Niemi

    WHAT’S THAT YOU SAY? RETREAD?

    HUH WEIRD FEELS LIKE THE TOPICS ARE GUIDED BY THE INVISIBLE HAND TO BE THE SAME BORING THINGS OVER AND OVER. THE MARKET HAS CHOSEN!

    • doubleturn

      Yeah, there is no collusion. Just a lot of coaches/teams who would rather keep debating the same things over and over. I was actually surprised that this exact topic hasn’t been used since 2003 nationals. I thought we’d had it more recently.

    • Cypher19

      I came here with the express purpose of reading Rebar’s commentary, and was not disappointed.

  • Noah Thaler

    Aaannndd cue recycling.

    • TheBerkeleyBear

      Is this just a perverse attempt at being green?

  • It’s as if the drugs topic and the juvies topic had sex and gave birth to this

    • So, this is what happens when juveniles do drugs and have sex?

      • Guest

        oops.
