A well crafted & argued long form essay select a style of governance
Our goal is to persuade that you understand very well everything—good and bad—that is at stake
“Please select a style of governance or politics – i.e. kingship, democracy, republicanism, communism, socialism, fascism, totalitarianism—authoritarian military dictatorship or another flavor—, etc. Specify your selection. (For example, I chose South Korea in the 1970s, which was a … ) Address the reasons society has supported/opposed this style of government, historical context surrounding how/when the government style emerged—in your specific case or in general or both—, and the ways in which a particular society’s perspective on the issues has evolved. (In my example, South Korea is different today than it was in the 1970s. How? Why? What were factors leading to that change and how do those stem from advantages and disadvantages of the form of government you chose?) Finally, you must include in your answer a prediction for how the issues may change in the next century.“ Be thorough and inspired. We have a lot to work with from our readings and you can also very easily tap into outside resources or current events to augment your essay. I’m looking for well crafted and supported argument. At an extreme you can argue in favor of authoritarianism or anarchy alike as long as you back up your argument solidly, and you also find your own rebuttals to your argument and then conclude in between the two positions.
