Private Military Contractors are a frequent topic to surface in parli debates.
You should watch the following debate to get familiar with the topic and to learn some value debating (team value format, fyi). The resolution is: “Corporate influence on the U.S. is excessive” or something like that.
The round is between Alyssa Farah/Isaiah McPeak and Kawika Vellalos/Grace Lichlyter (PHC debaters at the time, all highly successful in NCFCA including Grace as 2005 national champ in TP). Because it is NEDA, we focused on communicating slowly and clearly without theory lingo, so it’s a good example of that too.
Definitely a bad example of me speaking though 🙁
