The Continuing Importance of Uniqueness.
Coulter, Benjamin B.
People's conception of uniqueness in policy debate has changed dramatically in the past decade. Concepts like "we control uniqueness" and "direction of uniqueness" have come to dominate disadvantage debates. Unfortunately, policy debate has suffered as an activity as the result of some of these debating practices. In response, debaters and judges should reevaluate the ways in which they consider the question of uniqueness, evidence standards for uniqueness evidence should be raised, and uniqueness debates should include discussions of probability.
