Critical/performance affirmatives without plan texts and permutations

I tend to think that affirmatives need plan texts.

I would suggest that plan texts are the basis of:
1) link ground (disads and critiques and case turns)
2) consistency/predictability (in round)–ie from turning into a complete and utter moving target.
3) counterplan ground

So basically ALL the negative’s ground is founded in the plan text.

I would suggest though that the same debate that you have about perms and textuality is pretty similar to the text/no-text debate in terms of plan texts. (i.e. theory on one should apply to the theory on the other….it also means that researching and exploring in both areas could be helpful/productive/mutually informative)
