I have a tournament this weekend and I need a lot of help. the resolution is
RESOLVED: Standards of professional behavior ought to be valued above freedom of expression on social networking websites.

AFF
V- Locke's Social Contract
C- Limitation of Rights
C1- Cyber Bullying leads to teen suicide
C2- Terrorism
C3- Online Predators and Pedafiles

Neg
V- HELP
C- HELP
C1- HELP
C2- HELP

Please tell me what I can fix on my AFF case and some suggestions along with help with my neg case ( ideas of value, criterion, and contentions)

THANK YOU!

Liberty, individualism, self identity, self expression, evolution of language, peer groups, changing role/location of cliques.

The social contract isn't a value. Perhaps you could start there.

I thought so, can you help me with a value that would go with the case i have?

Aff: As others have suggested you need to redo your value and value criterion. Each part of your case acts as a piece of a chain.

Example Resolution: A just society ought not use the death penalty.

The Value is what must be the ultimate goal to be upheld in the round, what should be the ultmate goal of the society answering this question. In this case, the stock value would be justice.

Your Value Criterion is how we achieve the value. In this case,for example, it would need to be a medium to achieve justice, such as John Locke's social contract.

Your contentions are how we achive the value criterion.

Until the V/VC are made out, it does not matter how good your contentions are.

Neg: Perhaps biopower? If you need to research this, start with Michael Foucalt, though you depending on what you do you might want to pull in some "homo sacer" (Giorgio Agamben).

If you should be professional in what you do on social networking websites or if you should be able to do whatever you want on them.

Right, but by the standards of what profession?
And what kind of standards? Ethical, etiquette, what?

It really depends on how you define "standards of professional behavior"
