The Argument Essay (Lessons on Tyranny)
Write an essay that argues that a lesson in On Tyranny is or is not important for us to learn. Using the sources and the research you have done, explain why we should or should not need Timothy Snyder’s particular reflection on history. In other words, argue the reasons that the lesson does or does not matter to us. Do not forget that you are using Snyder to talk about the idea of the lesson and the examples he provides, but your paper is about your position on the idea.
