watch this...

...and ask yourself if the practice of 'one-topic-for-all-of-debate' 
constitutes, what malcolm gladwell calls, an 'obsession with universals'.

...then think about the following suggestion (a bridge between the status 
quo framework and future diversity) -- if we assume there's three clustered 
pluralities in debate (perhaps i'm wrong here?), then debaters will have the 
opportunity to choose between three narrowly-tailored topics: one more 
legal, one more policy-oriented, and one more intellectual.

whatcha think?
