About "Abolition Slavery (OPP)"
If there’s anything you don’t want to be, it’s on the wrong side of history. Your opponent claims that Vermont abolished slavery under the guise of nationalism. While the analysis that Vermont qualified as nationalist is difficult to uphold, it is a given that the affirmative necessarily embraces in presenting this application. The first response deals largely with de-linking the Vermont abolition from the resolution, while the second and third agree with the affirmative mindset, but turn the benefits to the negative’s advantage.
Remember that a state joining with the U.S. was either a nationalist move, or it was globalist. There is no middle ground. Be careful with how you explain your analysis, whichever route you choose. Finally, tread lightly with this topic: it warrants every ounce of respect you can give.
