This is the Second Negative Constructive, or 2NC, for 8 minutes in high school and 9 in college. Coupled with the subsequent First Negative Rebuttal, the neg has the “block” of 13 minutes straight in high school (15 in college) to attack Aff arguments, giving the Neg a huge advantage.
With so much time, how does the Neg spend it? Typically, the longer 2NC is used for extending a single quick piece of offense and then spending the rest of the speech dismantling the Aff’s case, extending case answers from the 1NC. This speech will also answer any lingering theoretical/procedural questions.
