Lacan

Pro

ABC (Abstinence, Be faithful, Condoms)programs were successful in Uganda for a single reason, the C, Condoms. The proof is the status quo, seeing as now, with a condom shortage in the Uganda the HIV infection rate has begun to rise again, after years of sharp decrease. This condom shortage is thanks to the Evangelic right in the United States. Using the effectiveness of ABC as their explaination the US conservatives have begun a campaign to rid SSA (Subsarharra Africa). This attack on condoms is 100% ideologically based, with no real science to back their attempts. This action is akin to murder, as the death rate of HIV in Uganda returns to the rates it was before the ABC policies were put in to place. Ideology is not the right way to approach issues of health and it is nonsense to allow religion into policies abroad.The right needs to learn that if we wish to be humanitarian it needs to be TRUE humanitarianism, rather then a missionary attempt to convert people to the faith and a genocidal ethic against those whom challenge our ideology (Santos makes this argument). It is key to solving HIV globally that the US keep it's religious views to itself, and try to prevent the virus. These three policies need all be lifted to stop the possibility of global destruction from HIV.

Disappointing....look to my opening. My opponent dosen't argue anything, clearly.
The rejection of the Ideological politics is akin to zizek's radical action and a vote aff means that you embrace change.

It's a good 1AC, one of my favorites.

It was Chesterton's turny, actually. What is your exgf's name? We hit 2 teams from Chesterton (they compete in their own tourney), we may have hit her.

Which Indiana tourney, my exgf is a Chesteton debater.

I did awful, I had a JV partner and 2 bad judges (one was voted the worst judge of the tourney.
I went 2-4.

My 1AC is this argument with Zizek as the author.

I wasn't, my coach hates anything national circuit... he yells at me for running ptix, talking faster than one word and hour, or anything not straight up consequential.

I get yelled at a lot, our 1AC is decontructionalist and so is our entire off, unless we have a great case-spec ptix link and a good actor CP.

We went to a tournament in Indiana, we took first.

How did you do at Blake? I envy you.

dr.doom
wtf? I spend all weekend debating, I have finals this week, and at 10 tonight I'm online debating Zizek...

I need a girlfriend or something. I'm going to take liberty in outlining the 1AC for flowing purposes, put a box on top and explain what you're moving and where if I screw anything up.
