I will initiate a Kritik against the resolution.

Kritik:


Violation

Talking about terrorist acts encourages the performing of terrorist acts.


Link

The resolution precipitates the questionable implications of talking of potential terrorism. The talking of terrorism assumes that there are qualms with doing so, hence discussion of terrorism occurs after the fact of the apriori, questionable action.


Impact

We should not legitimise inappropriate attention-seeking, such as terrorism, by talking about it.

According to the Institute for Homeland Security Solutions, “Terrorist attacks are part of an indirect strategy for achieving their political objectives by influencing an audience” [1]. By recognising and talking of terrorist attacks, people *against* the terrorist attacks work *for* them by giving them publicity, of which they would not otherwise receive, due to limited resources [1].


Alternative

The alternative is far easier: do not talk about terrorism.


Voter

As you can see, not talking of terrorist attacks helps discourage and prevent them, hence this resolution should not be debated.
