Readings: “A Modest Proposal” by Jonathan Swift, “Privatize Executions” by Arthur Miller, “A Case for Eating Dogs” by Jonathan Safran Foer (handout)
In three (3) pages, model your own modest proposal based on the concepts of Jonathan Swift, Arthur Miller, and Jonathan Safran Foer. Think of a social issue you are passionate about and possible solutions. In regards to your social issue, what argument are you truly trying to explore? You will then explore it through satire. You must set up your proposal with three claims. How will your proposal create a valid solution to this problem?
You will first set up the social issue you want to investigate, identifying the problems and your thesis. Your claims will be the reasons on why/how you wish to fix the social issue the way you choose. Your conclusion will offer the resolution of your ways to fix the problem and the benefit.
Examples of proposal: Sending criminals to Mars to see how life works, dumping America’s garbage in third world countries, etc.
*Remember the definition of satire. You are solving a real problem through an unorthodox solution. Do not propose something practical such as “banning fast food to fight obesity.”

Humans have shown poor response to emergency issues especially those that need important attention. Research studies have shown that on many occasions, people have ignored or acted ignorantly about the helpless persons in the society. As a result, their lives have become miserable and hopeless. Nevertheless, most importantly, these helpless persons are to enjoy the same rights and freedom just as the bystanders in the society. However, attention and response towards helping out these vulnerable persons have been diverted to other engagement leading to high exposure of the needy to dangerous lifestyles. This thesis, therefore, tries to bring an in-depth meaning of the bystander issue on reaction towards emergencies by raising relevant claims and arguments. Additionally, the thesis will propose appropriate measures to help find lasting solution to the common bystander issues humans interact with their daily lives.
It is sweetly sad to come across the street children and their mothers aligning themselves in streets of this great nation begging for food, money, and jobs among others, and nobody pays attention to fix their problems. As a result, they have faced frustrations and harsh lifestyles in the streets with no place to call home. The struggle within these circumstances has led to the emergence of high rates of insecurity along the streets due to tough survival mechanisms in the streets to meet the basic needs. However, only a few out of the many people walking along the streets have acted positively in caring about the livelihood and healthcare of these vulnerable people in the society. This thesis proposes that significant involvement in raising the livelihood should come to play from both the government and the public. In so doing, jobs can be created such as garbage collection to help facilit
