This essay is not a research paper that explains the issues, but one that begins with a controversial claim and then seeks to convince or persuade the reader that this claim represents the best position on the topic. The goal of this exercise is not to announce your own beliefs, but to convince or persuade somebody else to change their opinion or behavior by the weight of your comprehensive argument. Other than a brief paragraph introducing the topic, advance your argument in every paragraph.
