Argument Essay #1

"SuperCorp recently moved its headquarters to Corporateville. The recent surge in the number of homeowners in Corporateville proves that Corporateville is a superior place to live than Middlesburg, the home of SuperCorp's current headquarters. Moreover, Middleburg is a predominately urban area and according to an employee survey, SuperCorp has determined that its workers prefer to live in an area that is not urban. Finally, Corporateville has lower taxes than Middlesburg, making it not only a safer place to work but also a cheaper one. Therefore, Supercorp clearly made the best decision."


The main reason behind the SuperCorp's decision to change its headquarters location to Corporateville seems to be the recent surge in the homeowners there and that is why, its a superior place to live. This decision is not, by far, beyond the light of suspicion. As a surge of people into any place does not account for its superiority in terms of living. There are ample of other factors that make for a place's superiority in lifestyle.

The other big reason for this shift that the argument states is that its employees, according to a survey, whose credibility is also not beyond questioning, have a predilection to not so urban places. But it fails to mention how much these employees like that particular place where they intend to move.

Other assumptions that the argument makes are one that Corporateville is safer and cheaper place to work only backing it on the fact that it has lower taxes than its former site. This premise, although remotely, could account for the cheapness of the city but is nowhere connected with the safety as they are entirely disparate things.

Therefore the decision that SuperCorp took, that is to change its headquarters, has so many loopholes thereby rendering this decision under the reasonable doubt and clearly proving it not one of the best of the decisions.

Its not a big deal

A farmer committed suicide yesterday. Should we be bothered by this news? Because, that's like a regular affair in times such as the crop failure due to unexpected rain, right! Oh wait, was that just one farmer? Is his family still alive? Clearly, it's no big deal. The government will take care of the family now and the poor farmer will have his way after all. This is the line of reasoning that we use to look away from the circumstances as grave as this one. What else can we do? If we start to pay heed to every mishap that occurs out there, we will end up achieving nothing. Neither will there be any change in the occurrence of things nor will we be able to get what we decide to get in our short-sighted lives. This is where the grief of some tender-hearted people ends. But again, let's talk a little bit more about  this suicide, as this suicide is not an ordinary one, as the incidence did not take place in his own village, as there wasn't the solitude that you would expect during a successful suicide. Rather, it happened in the very city of the Kings who ruled his life, in the middle of one of the knight's cavalcade, where all could have been avoided just by a raised voice with true intention of saving him. But that didn't happen. So, what are we going to do? We will start blaming someone and then we will trust our judicial system to deliver justice to our poor farmers and look into the matter so that it doesn't repeat. But we know the world better than that now, don't we? How can we even think of a concept such as justice to a poor farmer when his life couldn't be saved even in the presence of  not only the mob, the cops too, liberal leaders for that matter. One of the things of which I am sure will happen is putting the blame on someone by the people, in fact, it is happening in your own head as you are reading this article. It is like a moral responsibility that we bear when something bad happens, like our own little judgment. Usually, it's either the media or the politicians. Forget the media and the politicians for a while, otherwise this will turn up into exactly what it should not be. Just ask yourself where do you stand as a human being in the process of making a difference, making the world a better place for you can do much more than just putting the blame on someone.

Being "YOU"!

Taking a task in hand and completing it in the prescribed time with all your strength should be all what is required for achievement of a goal only when it is not at all extraordinary. There are a lot more ingredients in the recipe of success. Planning, management, finding out your shortcomings and working towards improving them are more important than doing exactly what you want to do. These are the reasons why some people can't do what they want  to do even by putting the due effort required  while the others can once they completely focus their attention towards it. In a nutshell, for achievement of a goal, one has to focus on it. Just like stacking the bricks into the shape of a house is not the same as making a house, proper cementing technique has to be employed. 

It all sums up into two choices you could be like someone or you could be like no on. Unsurprisingly, the former choice is the common one and eventually brings up a large number of people into competition thus making the whole process monotonous, uninteresting and ordinary yet the challenges are still the same. Then, there is the second option which is not a choice per se. Either it is inherent or one is just lucky enough to become one. Being creative and curious is  a lot of help but even more helpful is the rejection of the social norms and finding out inconvenience in what one has.

Which mouse do you want to be?

Although hard work is the key to success but it is not the only key to success. It may sound pessimistic to some and opportunistic to the other. But, to a great extent, I am convinced that it is realistic. In this Darwinian world of ours, each individual has a unique meaning of success if one has it at all. Now, that meaning of success may or may not require hard work in itself. Even when the success demands hard work, it is not the only way to get it. Thanks to the world for being full of corrupt people along with human nature for easily getting lured to it. Putting the story of two mice falling into the bucket of milk into the perspective where one mouse simply gave up the hope to survive while the other one churned it so hard that it made curd out of it, one would say that the second mouse was hard working so it succeed and will respect that, or will he?

The real world, on the other hand, has a significant number of a third kind of  mouse which waits for the hard working mouse to turn the milk into the curd while sitting on its back and eventually jumps out of the bucket thrusting it deeper into the curd. So, the question which arises now is "Which mouse do you want to be?"

Talking about the queue systems, for instance, "First come, First served", this is supposed to be the rule but in reality, watching a long queue, either people walk away or take their chances if they make it in time or some consider themselves to be so special that they do not shy in breaking the line. In fact, they take it to be as the usual procedure and do not find it wrong. Some people go one step further in justifying their action of breaking the line believing it to be their birth right. As they say that breaking of a line requires an art that they only are privileged with. So anyone who can "break a line" must have the liberty of not following what underprivileged people do.
