Presenting Public Forum Resolutions in Parliamentary Style

With the following video, the Rutgers University Debate Union (RUDU) is inaugurating a new tradition as part of its increasing involvement with the Public Forum style of high school debate.

RUDU PF Resolutions in Parli Style, Debate 1, June 2011 Resolution from Storey Clayton on Vimeo.

This is the first in what is to be a series of Rutgers debaters debating the monthly Public Forum resolution in parliamentary style, the debate format RUDU regularly competes in. Parliamentary style is a longer format that relies on logic and persuasion instead of facts and evidence. While the research necessary for PF will not be included in these rounds, the arc of the argumentation should be invaluable in generating ideas for PF topics.

The first of the series is on the June 2011 (NFL Nationals) resolution, which is Resolved: That the United States should intervene in another nation’s struggle for democracy.

Government (Pro) is represented by Gordon Morrisette and Ashley Novak, while Opposition (Con) is represented by Storey Clayton and David Reiss.

Morrisette, Novak, and Clayton will all be staffing the Scarlet Knight Public Forum Debate Camp in Piscataway, NJ this July and August.
