About "No Free Lunch (AFF)"
Case Summary: Immigrants have historically come to this country under an implicit contract. They receive the benefits of the opportunities, freedoms and citizenship in America. In return, they are expected to assimilate, which means adopting 3 key values: 1) learn English; 2) accept America’s democratic values; 3) work hard and be self-sufficient (a.k.a. “the Protestant work ethic”). Multiculturalism breaks that contract by seeming to offer immigrants what they want (acceptance and opportunities in America) without fulfilling their end of the contract (assimilation, giving up their old ways in favor of American values). Breaking the contract harms society and immigrants both. It harms society by making unassimilated immigrants parasites, taking but giving nothing back. It harms immigrants by making them permanently unable to achieve all the benefits, rights and opportunities society has to offer because their separatism keeps them out of the corridors of power.

Coach Vance debated in National Forensic League debate while in high school from 1979-1982. In college, he judged at high school NFL tournaments in North Carolina. A homeschooling dad himself, he realized the growing potential and benefit of homeschool debate and switched over to coaching homeschoolers a couple years later. In 2001, he helped Chris Jeub with bringing The Blue Book to a more advanced level. He has been co-authoring Blue Book ever since.
