I hate all these people who complain about the environment, pollution, gas prices, poverty, woman’s rights, education, costs, and war yet they are the same people who drive SUVs, do not donate to NPOs, do not vote, do not write their congressional representative, do not recycle, I could go on and on. You know these people. The people who think they can have their cake and eat it too. You cannot love your ipod and complain about globalization.
With progress come problems. With a bigger job-title comes more responsibility. With industrialization comes pollution, cut-throat completion, lower priced goods, strawberries in winter, sushi in Kansas, 2-Pac downloads in Japan, and the nibble fingers of seven year olds picking your Dunkin-Donuts coffee beans in Kenya. Are you willing to pay more America? No. So deal with it. You cannot have your cake and eat it too. You …etc …………….
I just made this all up quickly to show an example. However this editorial needs more dates, facts, and/or statistics to prove my point.
Your editorial should be catchy, interesting, and should almost sway someone to your “side.” Be passionate, be bold, use great vocab.
Break up your thoughts/examples in smaller, easy to read paragraphs.
In total, this editorial should be one solid page in length.. maybe a little longer, not too much shorter.
I tried to take a different stance in my editorial. Justifying industrialism because we all love it so. However, your sides are clearly outlined in the directions. You can write it from the modern times or pretend you are living during the American or British industrialization.
Make sure to have a concluding sentence/paragraph. Make it fun to read!
