This is an informal discussion. I’m asking you all to write an essay that takes a stand for something you disagree with. You need to write this essay from the point of view of your opposition. Why am I having you do this? Think carefully about this. I would not ask you to write the opposite argument essay if I did not think it is important. Why is it important? Where do we see this in the “real world”? Where do we not see this in the “real world”?
