National Qualifiers are on Friday, my partner and i have a solid affirmative case (with evidence) but a fairly weak negative case. I am willing to share cases with anyone who shares their negative case

I am not going to argue the common arguments against affirmative action such as reverse discrimination, but rather point out the hypocrisy of the means of affirmative action though state programs. The very state which is there means for enacting affirmative action is discriminative and holds and unequal amount of power in society. In trying to reduce inequality and promote and reach equality, the advocates own philosophy falls on there back because they wish to use an institution which violently imposes inequality and smashes equality. Advocates should not seek to use political authority, and should reject the very institutions and power structures which make society unequal and stratified.

My opponent has skipped this round probably because of lack of interest in the debate or he was too busy. I affirm the position of con based under the fact that affirmative action is based on violence by bureaucracy. Vote Con.

We did the same thing today, but my other teammates weren't inclined to share. We all made it to Sems last year; and ended up killing each other for Nats. (We shared that year)

Our coach actually made a friend and I do a couple of PF rounds against our PF team (using their stuff).

No one is going to honestly post a decent NQ case online, mate.
