Change the 2018 November-December LD Debate Topic

Some of us have debated LD for four years, for some of us, this is our senior year of debate. This topic is one of the worst some of us have ever had in our debate career, including some college debaters. We want a strong topic for this year when there are so many better options. This topic is terrible for the LD community. It has weak questions of philosophy due to the lack of specification of an actor, and has no topical action, preventing good debate on both the national and traditional circuit

 

The topic is Resolved: In a democracy, the public’s right to know ought to be valued above the right to privacy of candidates for public office.
