Description

After much anticipation, the Ethos Debate Sourcebook is back! This time, we’ve combined it with the COG sourcebook’s true generics. We now bring you the best of both worlds: the quality of Ethos with the shotgun style efficiency generics of COG.

This year, Ethos Debate offers both LD and TP for Stoa and NCFCA. In prior years Ethos put out a powerhouse sourcebook that debaters all over considered the best. We promise to bring back that level of credibility and intelligence to the sourcebook community.

We have been out of the market for a while, but we have shaken off the rust and churned out this beauty just for you guys. The only thing we love more than high school debate is a good Qdoba Burrito.

Ethos promises to not only bring you a lot of evidence, but also quality cards that you can use right away. We write and draft 1AC’s, while including key strategy notes that clue you into what to run, and when to run it.

We are here to help with all your research needs. Our sourcebook is affordable and will help you increase your in-round debate prowess.

    As a national level debater who has competed at STOA NITOC in TP twice, I can say with certainty that this sourcebook definitely has both its Pros and its Cons:

    Pros:
    – Large Briefs with many pages of evidence.
    – All cards are from credible and verifiable sources.
    – The topics researched are ones that are often hard to find.
    – Options; Many different links and impacts for each argument so
    you can choose which ones to use and which ones to scrap.
    – Diversity of arguments; Different debaters run different types
    of arguments, and these briefs can meet many styles of TP
    debate.

    Cons:
    – Not all arguments are worth running:
    (This is my personal opinion, and I found that many of them
    didn’t meet my style of debate.)
    – Limited Affirmative Organization:
    I found that, in looking at some of the cases (for example,
    Supersonic Airtravel) there wasn’t really a designated 1AC with
    backup evidence. It was more like a conglomeration of research
    that you yourself could organize into a workable case.
    – Redundancy:
    To use the Supersonic Airtravel case as another example, the
    sourcebook lists that there is an “Affirmative” brief for the
    topic and a “generic” brief. In opening both documents side-by-
    side I found them to be almost identical. I would have much
    preferred both an AFF and NEG for each case listed.

    Was the sourcebook worth the purchase? Yes! What you see is what you get, and just like any sourcebook, you have to go through and find what arguments you want to use as a debater before getting into the rounds. Great resource, and I look forward to seeing the Midseason when it comes out!
