According to Kant, when we emerge as …. enslaves one to the object of one’s scheme.

The alternative is to vote negative because the 1AC’s ethics are right — to be the Dark Knight — this is the only option for true heroism and substantive change

Just as The Dark Knight illustrates the …. eyes of the public, true heroes must identify themselves with the evil that we fight.

2nc — epistemology

They’re lack of consciously examining their advocacy doesn’t mean there’s no link — rather, it supercharges our egoism arguments and means their epistemology is bankrupt

The psychological egoist questions the possibility of acting …. dynamics that give rise to the logic of charitable, altruistic, intervening behavior.

2nc — alternative

Even if they win their offense, that just supercharges why the alt solves — rejecting the affirmative is akin to Batman’s sacrifice — it’s a choice to not be the hero but to allow the affirmative to lose the debate and die the hero — a martyr who gave up the ballot for their ethics — a true hero — that’s a better method for generating community wide awareness and change and avoids the road to fascism turning their ethics
