Answer by mountain_fair
Do you have your research done? I am not sure which side you will take….but here is a suggestion:
Begin with a scenario, almost as the news would describe it: Angelina Jolie walks out of an orphanage cradling a baby.Give a bit of background (something factual — like the number of celebrities adopting, or the amount of media coverage they get) Then move on to your thesis Sample:
Although celebrities are often criticized for adopting children from impoverished nations, the act of providing a loving home actually saves the life of the selected child, and sheds light on the plight of needy children all over the world.
OR
Although the picture of a wealthy beautiful celebrity embracing a needy child is often moving, the actual truth is that celebrities are motivated by the positive publicity and rarely actually parent the adopted child.

Good luck!

One thought on “Q&A: Discursive essay…?”

  1. 1. Introduction (define “egoism” and “egotism”, which have to do with people’s most basic motivation):

    Human beings may be motivated by a feeling of egoism or egotism. The difference between the two is that the former has to do with self-interest as the actual motive of all conscious actions and the latter, with an exaggerated sense of self-importance. For example, in general, all human beings tend to have a sense of self-importance, which varies from individual to individual. In order to survive, humans must be reasonably egoist, that is, egoism, in a certain way, is necessary for the survival of the species. However, an exaggerated feeling of self-importance is harmful to the person (her)himself and to the ones around.

    2. Main body: introduce the two concepts (self-serving and life-saving):
    (A) self-serving: a tendency for some people to think about themselves first;
    (B) life-saving: a concept that means “to save someone from harm or danger”, which is an act of altruism (= to think about others first).

    3. Conclusion: refer to the examples provided and draw your conclusions. Do your examples show that celebrities who adopt children from poor countries are serving their own interests or the children’s? Why?
