About "Wording of the Resolution (INFO)"
This article was written by Season 18 author Matthew Calderwood.
This resolution asks us to value nationalism over globalism. Affirmatives will want to take that resolution and control the narrative of the debate by focusing on America and its hegemony. Hegemony made simple is just the world’s popularity contest. When you are winning, you have more influence. You will want to illustrate stories of hard working American businesses, intellectual property rights, crime rates of refugees, and most importantly the reasoning behind protecting the nation from widespread obsession with baked beans on toast.
Sometimes, absolute nationalism prevents the most efficiency and acts as a hindrance the success to the nation itself. Nationalism becomes protectionism and isolationism begins to fester some harms.
To prevent these harms, let’s look at the wording of the resolution. We’ll cover here some minor observations of some of the words in the resolution, a deeper analysis of both “nationalism” and “globalism,” then how debaters can choose to debate between these two.
