Frameworks give the judge a way to compare competing arguments. If one team gives the judge several good arguments about the economy, and the other team presents several equally strong arguments about the environment, a judge has no way to evaluate which arguments are more important unless debaters explicitly compare the importance of the arguments. Without comparison, the judge will have to choose how to compare these arguments on their own. Frameworks can help solve this issue. Unfortunately, many debaters use frameworks incorrectly and therefore don't address this frequent problem effectively.
