Why is “towards” used in the US economic engagement with Latin America topic?

C’mon they didn’t use “with” or “cooperation” or similar words not because the topic committee is racist or backwards thinking….but because that would seem to indicate a dual fiat. They did it to make life easier on debaters……to ensure we had real debates instead of either topicality or fiat theory debates. They wanted debate to be outward looking….rather than having navel gazing debates.

Plus, with can be just as faulty in terms.

They also aren’t mutually exclusive in terms of interpretation and function.

In one sense it doesn’t matter what the resolution says…..it matters what the aff says and does. How they bring the resolution to life in their own unique way. Otherwise, your argument is a giant NO LINK.
