About "Peace Corps"
This is the NEG brief against abolishing the Peace Corps. The AFF case will argue: that Peace Corps (PC) members are unqualified, that the projects fail, that there are various abuses and failures of the PC that leaves their volunteers vulnerable, and that PC promotes the idea of “white savior complex”—that poor people of color in poor countries need us white folks to go over there and tell them how to do things is condescending and demeaning to cultures thousands of years older than our own.
NEG will argue that Peace Corps is trying to make the world a better place, that volunteers have training specific to the field they’ll be going into, PC has new policies in place to make sure the volunteers are safe, and that there’s a diverse group of volunteers—it’s not all white rich folk. The disadvantages are about hurting those who have been working in Peace Corps, along with the countries that will be losing the benefits of Peace Corps.
