“Currently the youth is found by changes in their way of thinking and living, possibly due to the changes that occur in governments and are also reflected in the family, perhaps it is the economy. But young people are more awake, and can hardly be manipulated. In good that there are people with initiative and eager to progress.

Although there are still people who lose interest and only prefer to live their lives in a way that is easier. It is necessary for society to wake up and try to channel correctly. I think it is the apathy that these young people do not offer positive things. If everyone were interested in what happens to others, our society would be different. So it is important to abandon the disdain and bet more on solidarity among all.

Example of Argumentative Essay:
Title: The death penalty

“The successive criminal acts advance on the society. All registered by the media give rise to the rebirth of public opinion in favor of the death penalty legislation. This capital punishment has existed for several decades in countries where their communities agree that it is a punishment commensurate with the damage caused.

There are many feelings that emerge in the society that advances in favor of capital punishment: the thirst for revenge, justice for the damage caused, anger and pain do not allow them to realize that the death penalty has several negative and sufficient factors to think that it should not be part of the Constitution. Many can defend it, however it is necessary to consider factors that are opposed to its application.

The crime could have been proven and therefore the offender be judged. The offender committed a crime, the society judges him from gentlemen trained for it “the judges.” If the criminal is executed due to the application of the death penalty, the court takes an attitude that also makes him a criminal.

Undoubtedly, it is an attitude with contradictions, since the court is implicitly suggesting that executing others is a lawful act as a solution to social problems, which are not resolved by the execution of people. In fact, with this attitude it would seem that we are going back to prehistory.

Those who are in favor of the death penalty insist that it is the best way to intimidate, but do not consider the insensitivity of criminals above all those of high dangerousness that lack morality. The offender knows that death is one of the potential risks that they run when they commit crimes and kill.

However, nothing intimidates them as people with good feelings and morals think. The passional crimes exist and in that moment the criminal becomes blinded with an unconscious behavior, since he does not think about the consequences.

The death penalty is feared by good people who, being peaceful, moral and honest, may be involved in a crime on a circumstantial basis, as it may happen to occasional criminals.

This occasional crime caused by circumstance of life can lead them to be executed. The death penalty is a failure because it does not protect the innocent, does not respect civilization or has the capacity to stop the actions of criminals (Edmund Brown)

The death penalty is not an exemplary act. Proof of this are the crimes that still exist in the countries where it is applied. This inhuman punishment certainly exists in several of the states of the United States without being able to demonstrate the reduction of crime rates.

The sicarios are an example of hopelessness and foolishness, since most of them lack life expectancy beyond 30 years, none think of old age as a possibility of life. With such thoughts it is impossible to believe that the application of the death penalty can intimidate them. Without giving value to life it is impossible to think that they would stop being criminals for hire.

Also given the impossibility of being applied to children under 18 there is a risk that hired assassins hire minors to commit the crimes. In short, there would be no possibility of condemning to death the true perpetrators and ideologues.

It is not possible to ignore the great possibility of an inefficient investigation by the judges, who sanction and dictate the death penalty, sometimes, as has already happened wrongly sanctioning as guilty who was actually innocent.

The judicial infrastructure can be better or worse depending on each country, but none of them is exempt from making mistakes, since judges are human beings who can commit them as such.

In 1974, a bomb exploded in a Birminham pub, killing 21 people. This fact was investigated by the London justice, which condemned 6 Irishmen for suspected members of the IRA.

Sentenced to life imprisonment, the justice of London recognized its error only at the beginning of the year 1991. During all this time, the condemned suffered tortures of all kinds, without the London justice can still find the real responsible for that attack.

If these six Irish suspects had been subjected to the death penalty and considered it a just punishment for the aberrant fact they had allegedly committed, there would be no possibility for the judges to recoil acknowledging their error.

If an accused can be wrongly sentenced to death penalty in a country with a solid legal and criminal infrastructure, in countries without this characteristic worse events would occur.


Also in the thought of the death penalty as the just punishment to the criminal prevails a feeling of revenge over the goal of preventing the continuation of the murders.

As well as killing whoever kills, one could think of granting proportionality to the punishment in terms of crimes committed against the environment, violating the violator, burning the house of a pyromaniac and ultimately would be applying the law of the Talion in our time .

In any case, it does not mean tolerating or accepting criminal acts, but rather upholding one’s own values that overlap those of the condemned. The revenge carried out by the state is repudiable.

The causes of crime are not reduced by the death penalty. The problems that should be rooted out are social inequality, social injustice, lands that are not worked but belonging to an elite do not allow the peasant to cultivate and work in them.

The governmental establishment presents a laziness that, in order to continue in this way, it will be impossible for crime to be reduced in the way that society needs it. The death penalty can be a threatening decision for the offender, but it will not in any way root out the causes for the crimes. “

Test example of a movie:
Title: The Society of Dead Poets

“In the year 1959, the story goes out at Welton High School in the United States where wealthy students go. Six of them stand out at the start of the new academic year. Upon witnessing the ceremony of the institution, four outstanding values of the Institution are mentioned: treason, honor, discipline and excellence, and at the same time, they welcome Professor Keating.

The ceremony ends and the first class on poetry to cago of Professor Keating begins, who leaves the room whistling pretending that they understand that they should follow him to where he is going. They meet in the hall of the trophies won by the Academy where they also find photographs of the students who finished their studies in this place.


At the beginning the students do not understand the objective of the kind of poetry that Professor Keating wants to dictate when he asks them to look at the photographs and think about the thoughts that these young people might have had, in the triumphs they had thought about and in the frustrations I would wait for you throughout your life.

Meanwhile the teacher whispers in the ear one of the students “Carpe Diem” without anyone but that student can hear it.

At the end of the class, Professor Keating talks to all the students explaining that his words whispered in that student’s ear had been “Take advantage of the day” as a way to make them understand that the students of the photographs did not take advantage of their life as much as possible and They were wishing that the new students do not waste time and know how to value it.

It makes them understand that “Carpe Diem” is a common phrase but must be used with reason to be able to see beyond the consequences that the same people must bear from the actions decided by themselves.

Professor Keating’s attitude was considered revolutionary, being different from the other professors, since it differed in the way in which he taught the classes, his teaching was emphasized by the struggle of the ideals, he exalted the freedom of expression, the freedom of opinion and freedom of action which highlights romantic authors (Thoreau, Tennyson, Witman among others) This attitude of the teacher allowed students to understand the meaning of seizing the day breaking with the formality of pre-established schemes in the Academy, allowing them at the same time feel stronger and able to face important moments of life in pursuit of their goals.

As the film progresses, the main protagonist students pass very pleasant events as truly unpleasant. But the most important and decisive is the decision of Neil Perry who commits suicide due to the intolerance of his father that forced him to continue his studies to graduate as a doctor when the young man wished to write poems and participate in plays.

The student dies and begins an investigation carried out by the father of the young man and the director arriving to conclude that the form to give the classes of professor Keating had been decisive for that suicide.

Therefore, it was necessary to dismiss the teacher, for which all students supposedly sign according to this dismissal. The dismissed teacher returns because he had forgotten several of his belongings and it is at that moment when it is Todd Anderson who tells him that none of the students signed according to him to leave the Academy, but that they had forced him and at the same time asks him to forgive them.

The teacher looks up and observes that the students are getting up one by one and thanks them for having built the strength to apply everything he had taught them and apply the phrase “Carpe Diem” as the best weapon against an oppressive society.

In conclusion everything taught by Professor Keating gives rise to understand the importance of knowing how to face the different problems of life and how to live it despite how difficult is the situation that a person traverses.

To live life to the fullest, being aware of the consequences that will have to go through the acts, that is, considering if those acts will lead to consequences that will affect other people and once affected have the responsibility to accept the error, and if it is possible to correct it and not return to commit them “
