About "Development Assistance Is Not Pragmatic"
This case attacks any affirmative case where it’s weak. Most affirmatives are going to argue 1 of 2 ways. They’re either going to argue that wealthy nations have a moral duty to assist poor nations or they’re going to argue that development assistance has worked to move nations forward.
This case doesn’t care what they pick. If they pick the moral route, beat them on the value. Add 1 or 2 reasons to prefer and develop the idea of pragmatism as a test. Show the judge why it’s important to care about real-world results rather than moral wishes.
If they choose to argue pragmatism, great. Go scorched earth on development assistance. This case already comes locked and loaded with three highly credible sources that prove how development assistance has failed poor countries and wasted hundreds of billions of dollars. Find more studies, find out why these studies are credible. Beat them on pure knowledge.
