Please read and review: GRE AWA Issue Task... THANKS!


Recommended Posts


Issue Task Prompt:


Claim: Governments must ensure that their major cities receive the financial support they need in order to thrive.

Reason: It is primarily in cities that a nation's cultural traditions are preserved and generated.

Write a response in which you discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the claim and the reason on which that claim is based.


While it would be beneficial for major cities to receive such support from the government, the narrowed vision to sustain certain major cities rather than the nation as a whole would only ensure the stabilization and investment to limited cultural traditions, neglecting to uphold other cultures.

By allocating their financial support to certain major cities, government diminishes their ability to provide for its jurisdiction as a whole, which puts a limitation on diversity and freedom in its nation. To place all resources to preserve the major cities’ cultures would ignore all other forms of cultures not prominent in that particular city, ultimately driving its people to live in a grayscale society.

With this basis, this claim would run parallel to cultural discrimination which kills any and all opportunity to experience traditions that one may not know of. As a government governing over a nation, such as the United States, by restricting the cultural palate of its residents would be as America was before its revolution--non-existent freedom.

In summary, if a government decides to financially support its major cities solely to preserve its cultural traditions, this government would not be fit to govern in this or any generation. As history has demonstrated, time and time again, when one part is supported and the other are not, revolution is bound to happen; unless there is a balance. To put all one’s bets on one limits the opportunity for all.
