This is my first debate in a few months. I accept this round and negate the resolution. Before the round begins, however, I would like to make two brief observations. First, this debate seems to be about the inherent "goodness" of due process rights. Consequently, the American constitutionality of due process rights is immaterial to the round because a right may be Constitutional but not good or just. For example, ownership of others through slavery was a constitutional right, but it was clearly unjust. So, my opponent cannot use the Constitution as a justification. Second, extreme examples of due process violations, such as torture or severe mental interrogation, cannot be used as an argument in the round because they involve the violation of human rights and would automatically prevent me from being able to debate for justice. The round must be fair to both debaters, so such extreme examples cannot be used because they are unjust for another reason.
