Declaration of independence
Declaration of Independence

In your opening paragraph you use the phrase “the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God.” What are these laws? In what way are they the criteria on which you base your central arguments?

In the same paragraph, you refer to the “opinions of mankind.” Whose polling data are you using?

If they are as evident as you claim, then it should not be difficult for you to locate appropriate statistics.

I hope this critique will assist you in preparing a declaration that may receive serious consideration for the crown.

Let s look at the problem of poverty
Let’s Look At the Problem of Poverty

  • Analytical Approach—Minimum standards for everyone in health, education, safety, etc.

  • Rhetorical/BS Approach—Inequality and the gap between the rich and the poor

Who is to blame
Who Is To Blame

  • The System---Capitalism generates inequality which generates poverty

  • The Individual---People don’t accept their responsibility for their own success

  • Where do you think the blame is in pollution?


  • Capitalism is based on competition where merit is valued more than equality

  • Poverty is a necessary by-product and a major cause of societal problems

  • Reducing the negative effects of poverty
