The thought suddenly struck me that, as I wish to increase my knowledge of LD debate, that a tournament based off of an LD topic would be a good idea. It isn't a definite thing, only an interest check. I don't want to be that kid who hosts a tournament that nobody joins.

I'll start a list below for people who are interested. Just put your name on the list if you are. If all the spots get filled and someone else is interested, just add a number and put your name on the list.

I'll do this. Would it be recent or really old topics?

Recent. I'm debating between the NOV/DEC topic, the JAN/FEB topic, or the March/April topic.

And to clarify for those of you who don't do LD/don't know the LD topics

NOV/DEC - Individuals have a moral obligation to assist those in need
JAN/FEB - It is morally permissible for victims to use deadly force to respond to repeated domestic violence
March/April - Targeted Killing is a morally permissible foreign policy tool

o.o I didn't actually expect people to be interested in this.
Alright. Guess I'll get working on a tournament to set up.
Now, for the topic. I will have two different votes here to do for those interested.
1. Single topic for the tournament, or multi-topic (drawing for which topic to debate or something along that lines. Not too sure about things now, feel free to suggest).
2. Preferred topics. Rank in order of preference. Potential LD topics are listed below:
a) Individuals have a moral obligation to assist those in need
b) It is morally permissible for victims to use deadly force in reasponse to repeated domestic violence
c) Targeted killing is a morally permissible foreign policy tool
d) Access to drinking water ought to be valued as a human right instead of a commodity

As for judging, I have yet to figure that out. My first thought was to judge the rounds myself. But some may claim that would be unfair for the moderator of the tournament to judge the rounds himself. So I'm open to suggestions of what to do here.
