About This Download
Prosperity is the ultimate end goal and globalism is what takes us there. That is the basic idea behind this negative case. The value is prosperity, measured by the wealth and well-being of a nation. Prosperity is further explained through more specific factors, and as the negative it is your job to show how globalism best upholds them. You are to argue that every nation strives to be prosperous, and that the actions they take should be done in that pursuit.
Within the two contentions, you impact the effects both nationalism and globalism have on a nation’s prosperity. The case exemplifies this through applications such as economics, accountability, and global issues. You will explain how nationalism impedes prosperity, favoring protectionist economics, weakening accountability, and providing limited solutions. Globalism on the other hand encourages free trade, maintains a level of accountability, and tackles problems on a global level. Essentially, globalism fuels a nation’s prosperity.
When countries work together and plan on a global basis, we see a variety of advancements. If a nation has a thriving economy—with safe, healthy, and free citizens—that country is prosperous. Globalism leads to prosperity, helping a nation not only survive, but thrive.
To refute this case, point out that globalism ignores a nation’s specific needs. Before anything else, a nation has an obligation to its citizens. A truly prosperous nation understands that it cannot prioritize anything above the rights and interests of individual citizens. In addition, you can argue that globalism puts countries in a position to compromise their own morals and values in favor of a global agenda. In the long run, the most effective nation focuses on national interests first and global interests second.
