1 +Fascism is undergoing a software upgrade – automating geopolitical emergence into the cosmos to secure a collective unconscious in the service of global apartheid. This computational cosmology produces a confluence between technics and politics that maintains an unstable regime of racial capitalism through the techno-science of the aff. The 1AC’s maintenance of planetary connectivity universalizes their unconscious investments in these militarized technics, obliterating any alternative cosmology or future.

7 +The 1AC’s fantasy of collision cascades sustains these racial technics through existential blackmail. Their pseudo-scientific rationalization of risk blackmails populations into accepting any savior to the horrific uncertainty of the collision cascade, which demobilizes radical solutions in favor of quick fixes, guaranteeing greater threats later down the road.

13 +This cosmology is terminally unstable – the 1AC’s maintenance of a technics of planetary connectivity relies on a racial unconscious that renders the whole world as a target, fractionalizing the global apartheid into every satellite and financial transaction even as this militarized real produces the conditions of its own demise.

19 +The alternative is to reject the aff’s recuperation of racial technics in favor of cosmotechnical analysis – against the affirmative’s false universalism, the alternative seeks out the technics of new worlds through philosophical inquiry that starts with the particular – only by reopening the question of technology can enable re-appropriation of speed in new, revolutionary directions against a computational unconscious.
