Premier Debate co-Director Bob Overing has recently released a copy of the paper he presented at the 2015 Alta Conference on Argumentation. He argues for a view similar to ethical modesty in LD framework debates but applied to the “role of the ballot” argument as used primarily in kritik and performance positions.

Feedback and discussion is much appreciated!
