In Fred Stenson’s “In Search of a Modest Proposal” the author states, using his daughter’s first essay assignment as an example, that essays are inherently personal and should reflect the author’s own ideas, and that essay curriculums are flawed in their formulaic approach to teaching what is supposed to be a creative form of writing. Stenson’s essay uses a liberal amount of sarcasm to get his point across, and coupled with a reliance on personal examples his overall argument loses some efficacy. However, most of his irony and sarcasm are effective in their emotional appeals, and when coupled with more convincing examples and reference to authority that directly support his claim, they make for a compelling debate that is hard to refute.
A Modest Proposal A college degree is becoming increasingly more valuable with many decent jobs requiring some sort of higher education. As more students prepare to enter college, many are faced with the escalating prices of not only tuition, but also other things such as textbooks and the cost of living. This problem has been especially prominent in California, particularly within the last month, due to the UC regent’s new and controversial plans for an in-state tuition increase of five percent in five years. With the rising prices of tuition many students must turn to student loans. These loans often get them through the expensive costs of school, but after they graduate, they are left with a substantial amount of debt to pay off. I think we can all agree that something must be done in order to stop students from having to pay these ridiculous tuition prices while still being able to get a quality college education. The answer actually lies in a system used decades ago, known as indentured servitude. If we want to create economic stability for future generations to come we must give them proper access to a college education without the worry of tremendous financial debt. In order to achieve this, I propose that any student will be able to attend a university free of charge, but after graduating must be given to an owner who will dictate their work, where and how they live until they finish their service which will range from fifteen to twenty years, depending on the
Every time I visit my grandmother in Georgia the temperature can never be right. It is always too cold or too warm. This is a problem for someone her age because she is constantly having to adjust the thermostat; furthermore, to squint at the small numbers and dials is tiring and frustrating. Her internal temperature needs to be maintained, and constant fluctuations provide no benefit to her health. If her temperature drops too low it can cause infections and illness. If it rises too high it can cause fever, dehydration, and heat stroke. When 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit is not sustained the problems become endless.

A Modest Proposal is relevant to contemporary social and political issues seeing that his solution for the food shortage draws attention to the people. Jonathan Swift’s atrocious approach to the issue caught everyone’s attention to bring more awareness directed toward the situation. This results in the people having more ambition to fix the problem rather than giving an uninteresting statement on how to improve conditions. A current social issue in today’s world is people choosing to be transgender or non-binary, meaning a person rejects to identify themselves as male or female. With this matter, I believe anyone can be what they want to be as long as the person is not trying to influence me personally to make that decision. Although, society
