Transcript of argument essay

"The Singer Solution to World Poverty" By: Peter Singer In "The Singer Solution to World Poverty", an article that appeared in The New York Times Magazine, Peter Singer, a professor of bioethics, calls attention to the urgent need for food and medicine in many parts of the world. Singer argues that prosperous people should donate to overseas aid organizations such as UNICEF or Oxfam America all money not needed for the basic requirements of life. "The formula is simple: whatever money you're spending on luxuries, not necessities, should be given away." write an essay in which you evaluate the pros and cons of Singer's argument. Use appropriate evidence as you examine each side, and indicate which position you find more persuasive. c) We can teach our children that being generous is a good thing and therefore change the future generations 1. Pros: a) If we donate all the money we don't need to survive, we will be helping others survive and therefore we will preserve our way of life and making other lives better. b) We can live a comfortable life and the idea of rich or poor can be thrown away. 2. Cons: a) So many Americans work hard for their money. b) People who have been prosperous for so long might not be willing to give up their money so easily. My Position:

I believe that singer proposes a good idea, but at the same time unrealistic. We should donate some money, that we don't use, to organizations that helps the less fortunate. it would makes us united as one, the way it should be. its unrealistic because we can't change overnight. this would take years to do because a lot of americans are accustomed to the way that they lived for years. Reflection:
I enjoyed reading this piece because it got me thinking what the world would be like if we were living this "world" that he wanted us to live. Would people be more caring towards each other? Would there be less hate against those who choose to be different? those were the questions that were running through my mind at the time.
