The State of the Affirmative Case.
Klopf, Donald W.
In debate, the affirmative case is changing so that the traditional needs-plan-advantages and comparative advantages cases are no longer the only ways to debate the affirmative. This paper discusses the two models of the affirmative case--the stock issue and systems models--and describes seven of the affirmative case possibilities: needs-plan-advantages, comparative advantages, goals criteria, alternative justification, effect oriented, on balance, and comparative need. It concludes that while Arthur N. Kruger questions the justification of using the newer affirmatives, they are nevertheless being used by debaters all over the nation. (JM)
