American Heritage PB (Perry Beckett)
Hi I am Perry, I debated for AHS in South Florida from 2016-2020, I was decently successful as a debater-winning Blue Key, Valley, and getting to semis of the TOC.If you have questions about any of the stuff here feel free to message me on Facebook.
As a general note, the quality of prep gets infinitely better near the end of my junior year. IE I kinda sucked at debate at the beginning of that year, and a lot of the early stuff isnt great.
I also omitted frontlines, because you should be familiar with the position you are reading yourself, and just reading others.
Positions that were primarily written with or by other people, are also not here because I dont feel like I have a right to put other peoples prep up. I disclosed open source my senior year, so if you want something it should be up on the wiki.
Ignore the weird doc names later on, I was trying to make it standardized and the site crashed.
Sept-Octo 2018 Confidential Sources
SO Agonism AC.docx This was my primary aff on the topic, but honestly it was kinda bad, they might be some useful cards/args in it tho
This was my first foray into Levinas, and if the last aff was bad this one was actually terrible. The later Levinas aff is much better/coherent.
Never read this, but it was ok.
This NC was kinda bad, but the framework has potential and I wrote a better version of it later on.
This shit was really funny, but I never got to read it
This NC was prolly one of, if not my favorite neg position I cut. It was super fun and pretty good tbh.
Idk why I cut so many PICS for this topic, but I did
Nov-Dec 2018 Right to know
This was pretty much the stock sexual assault/SV aff on the topic. Never ended up reading it.
Read this pretty much every aff round of the topic
Never read it and it kinda sucked
Read this pretty much every neg round
Despite the fact I didnt know how to spell Panpsychism, this NC was pretty good and I primarily read it against means based Phil Affs.
This was a pretty good, short, NIB, even if it didnt have a warrant.
This NC was straight up incoherent, but probably negated.
Jan-Feb 2019 Military Aid
Read this about 1/2 of aff rounds and would usually go for impact turns
I wrote this aff in 15 mins at 1am and it really shows. It sucks, and was never read.
Read this once, it was a pretty cancerous tricks aff.
I read this twice, and it was meh. Not great tbh.
Another burner aff, it was kinda fun to write though.
Read and won on this once, it was pretty good
This DA was ok, but saying Djibouti was funny
Case file I read vs common plans.
Read this NC at Harvard, its kinda bad
Read this once, interesting but not great.
Never read it, but was pretty fun.
Read this a few times, its basically just epistemic skep but weirder.
March-April 2019 Drugs
MA19 - Burden AC.docx Never got to read it, but was one of my favorite affs to write.
This plan was extra T, but pretty decent.
This plan was pretty short, and just objectively true.
This PIC was hysterical and didnt lose a round.
Terrible word PIC and proof I dont know how to spell.
Sep-Octo 2019 Standardized Tests
Pretty decent plan I cut, but was never confident enough in my LARP skills to read
The OG Levinas Aff, I read this pretty much every round. The first part of the offense was a contingent standard.
Read this a fair amount of neg rounds
Kinda Memey Tricks NC. Never read it.
Pettit NC Scopa cut that I read a decent amount.
Read this at Yale and it turned out pretty well.
Another Scopa product I read a decent amount.
Nov-Dec 2019 Fossil Fuel Subsidies
Never broken or finished but had potential
Read this pretty much every aff round on the topic.
Another unfinished aff that could have been good if nov dec wasnt so short.
Kinda memey tricks NC I never read.
Kinda sad I never read this because it was kind of cool.
Funny advantage CP
Jan-Feb 2020 Nukes
Never broken, it was the updated version of the reciprocal relations stuff.
Read R4 of the TOC vs Evan
Unbroken plan aff for the TOC and Harvard
Random K aff I read a few times
Existentialism Aff I mainly read vs Antiblackness Debaters
The full file got deleted when I spilled water on my computer doing TOC, but it was pretty much the same as the SO Levinas aff. This speech doc just has the new offense + two extra reasons to prefer I added.
Another causality of the TOC computer disaster, this aff originally had a lot more in the file, but this is sorta the base of it.
Never broke this NC but it was pretty cool tbh
Read this a good amount of neg rounds.
TOC Action theory.docx Rodl NC Scopa wrote
Plato NC Scopa wrote that I read a lot.
March-April 2020 Predictive Policing I didnt debate this topic, I just wrote this aff for friends. (PB) PP - Retributive Justice AC.docx
