About "Fair Trade is Not Impartial"
This case seeks to link the impacts that aren’t simply, ‘They cause socialism, which is bad.’ That impact can be a powerful one, if you lay the groundwork in this case properly, but we need some more substance. This case will not reduce the debate to capitalism and socialism. Instead, we’re going to give our opponents as much rope as we can safely give them and use that same rope to tie their case down to our harms. Our main harm? Valuing fair trade over free trade leads to inherent bias in the market. The destruction of justice and impartiality inevitably leads to a loss of economic growth, consumer trust, and, if carried far enough, a loss of essential liberties as well.
