We now move to item 9 of the debate -- the Second Affirmative Constructive, which is the start of the second part of the debate. I would like to clarify what are allowed in this part. In standard debates, there is a second constructive followed by a set of rebuttals. Unfortunately in our debate format, we did not design in a rebuttal. Rebuttals are oftentimes the most interesting part of the debate, but we have not seen them yet because they are not allowed in the Q&A.
So, let us make a minor adjustment to what is allowed. The Second Constructives can be used for a mixed purpose: (A) Firstly, it can be used to expound the debater's position some more like in a standard constructive. That way, it can be used to open up additional points or just to shore-up any positions that have been weakened during the Q&A. (B) Secondly, it may also be used as a rebuttal and to attack the opponent's positions. This is the part of the debate that we are yet to see.
There is no need to indicate your assent. I simply allowed both uses as you deem fit. PM me if you have any questions or burning concerns.
