NoKor: PM speech outline [Nov. 29th, 2006|02:13 pm]

[mood |blankblank]

TH can live with a nuclear North Korea

(so far, this is the best idea i have, if i can think of something better, then i shall post...)

CONTEXT: (i am trying) to set this in western nations specifically US which is a major proponent in opposing north korea's production of nuclear weapons

DEFINITION: can live- the act would be fine and can be permitted
nuclear- producing nuclear weapons
North Korea- (apart from china), this is another communist country in east asia
***so, we are arguing on the possibility of giving north korea the permission to continue in its production of nuclear weapons

ISSUE: western hypocrisy wherein there is an impetus on singling- out north korea while western power, US has also produced and tested nuclear weapons. (see http://www.mathaba.net/0_index.shtml?x=544284)

STANCE: the government side would like to give north korea the permission to produce and test weapons and will not sanction them as US utilized such power but was not sanctioned. (?and also propose that in testing, location must be measured accurately to ensure that it will not cause harm?)
why proposal will work and north korea will not attempt to destroy a country with nukes: deterrence/to avoid retaliation


**Suggested topics to concept map/discuss next week:
1. outsourcing 2. 2008 olympics?

North Korea lecture [Nov. 8th, 2006|04:45 pm]

hullo kids. :)

hope you "enjoyed" (i use the term loosely, okay?) our little North Korea lecture. we could've discussed more, but i'm hoping we've sacrificed quantity for comprehensiveness and depth. :p any more questions on the matter are welcome, just reply to this. let's keep the community active.

also, if anyone of you is bored (uh), and can perhaps make a digital rendition (even a .jpg file maybe? or on word/powerpoint) of the concept map, that'd be nice. i noticed some people got a little messed up while taking notes so that'd be a huge help to them too. :)

i'll be uploading friday's lecture's concept map tomorrow night. :) please download and print for class.

more importantly, notice that while we were concept-mapping, we more or less were forming ideas readily transformable to arguments. however, a word of caution: while matter creates a good groundwork for strong arguments, the way you handle the wide expanse of matter you have on any topic determines your efficacy as debaters. matter, to be effective, must be well-integrated into the analysis and not used tokenistically in argumentation.

the homework, again, is to casebuild for both gov and opp the motion: TH can live with a nuclear North Korea. will post my debate notes on this in a bit. :)
