  GONZAGA 2K7  __/__ FILE NAMEABE Rights Malthus, The Best Argument Ever. What is it. -Rights Malthus is based on the idea that the crunch is inevitable since resources are finite. The Crunch ismultifaceted (global warming, spieces loss, overpopulation, pollution, deforestation etc.)-When the Crunch comes states will go authoritarian to manage resources. Two reasons to prefer transitioning to authoritarianism now -Prevents worse environmental collapse and extinction because authoritarian govs can manage resources.-Prevents worse authoritarian governments. Reasons why you should run rights malthus -the inevitability claim-you can use it to answer everything (A2 Free Trade Good, Democracy Good, Objectivism, Rights Good)-It’s fun to be evil **Side Note—  Debate is a game. It has nothing to do with advocacy and all education is secondary.I have many doubts about the advantages to activism in debate but debate encourages people to win. If your going towin, you do whatever you can to win.Switch Sides Debate is good, you should challenge all of our assumptions.And you’ll piss people off. The Critique Portion—  Ultimate Liberty = Ultimate Evil.  Requiem For Modern Politics .Win the inevitability claim and you usually win. Its a lot easier than Malthus. Generic no crunch cards bad. The Tech Debate. Tech prevents the crunch, New energy, Agriculture, Space colonization.-Science is decreasing-Human fallibility-Too Many Problems at Once-Heat Pollution.

Just not helping them.- Be Professional! No one likes goony Malthus debaters. But don’t back down! If you treat the argument like a badone, the judge will evaluate it like a bad one  Common Arguments  Its Racist  A) Inevitability/Worse AuthoritarianismB) Future GenerationsC) Generic Consequences Good (David Cummiskey,  Kantian Consequentialism )D) Promoting Democracy is RacistLeaders wont ChangeFIRST, IT DOESN’T MATTER HOW BAD THE CURRENT ADMINISTRATION IS FOR THEENVIRONMENTA) THE ELECTIONS IN 2008 WON’T BE SUSPENDED EVEN IF AMERICA BECOMES LESSDEMOCRATIC – BUSH CAN’T RUN AGAINB) THE CRUNCH FORCES CHANGE – EVEN IF THE GOVERNMENT ISN’T ENVIRONMENTALIST ITWILL SOMEDAY BE FORCED TO RESPOND TO THE CRUNCH.
