How to think like the judge or How to think about the last rebuttal

What is the difference between offense and defense?

What does it mean to focus on offense?

Does this mean different things to different speakers?

Terminal defense. Obliterated, made irrelevant, or impossible.

Choice & priority.
Reflection and association.
Anticipation & beginning with the end in mind

Value priority
Decision priority
Evidence/proof priority
Interactivity (how to the impacts & positions interact)
Even-ifs
Specificity versus generality

Big & credible?????

No argument sustains engagement
You don’t win on dropped arguments.
Who wins the debate?
How can you be sure you win the debate?
