Review request for Analysis of an issue [#permalink] New post 08 Oct 2009, 08:19
The primary responsibility of citizens is to obey their nation’s civil and criminal laws.
Discuss the extent to which you agree or disagree with the opinion stated above. Support your views with reasons and/or examples from your own experience, observations, or reading.


I completely agree with the above opinion because I believe that the primary responsibility of any good citizen is to respect the constitution of his or her country and obey the laws as laid down by the constitution. Nation’s civil and criminal laws are formed to protect the interests of every citizen in the country and hence by following them, every citizen is contributing in his or her own way to maintain peace, law and order in the society, which leads to prosperity.

First, as stated above, by obeying the civil laws, a citizen will not only help in maintaining good law and order but also in reduction of costs that is used for the purpose of marinating law and order. For example, if most of the citizens in the country follow all the traffic rules then there is no need to have huge number of traffic cops. These cops can be deployed in other resource intensive activities while the budget allocated for traffic maintenance can be used to develop infrastructure such as repairing roads or construction of new roads etc. It will serve the twin benefits of cost reduction and efficient utilization of resources.

Second, by obeying the criminal laws, a citizen will help to reduce the crime rate in the country. The reduced violent incidents will help in boosting the confidence of the citizens and the whole society will feel uplifted and empowered. Any country will definitely thrive in this kind of environment, leading to its economic growth.

On the contrary, imagine a situation where all the citizens of a nation fail in their duties of obeying the nation's laws. What will it lead to? It will certainly lead to complete anarchy and chaos in which even one single person will not be able to live in peace. That country will not sustain for long but will suffer from economic failure and finally deteriorate towards a failed state.


In conclusion, I would like to state that it is of paramount importance for a citizen to obey the nation's civil and criminal laws as it leads to many benefits for the country as a whole and also for citizens as individuals. However, failure to obey the nation's civil and criminal laws will lead to anarchy and chaos. So we can conclude without an iota of doubt that, one of the primary responsibilities of citizens is to obey their nation's civil and criminal laws.

Please give your feedback.

hi,

it was very well written. i didnt find any glaring grammatical or other errors. the only thing that would trouble me is the choice and strength of wording in your last body paragraph and conclusion. saying that it will definitely go into anarchy is a wild claim. im not sure if this would be graded differently because of such extreme wording - my guess is it wouldn't. overall i'd give it a 6.0. good job

I am sure this essay is worth 5+. Ideas were good. Except the 4th paragraph, where I thought the wording could have been better (even 'one single' person seems redundant).

All in all if you are able to maintain time..you should not worry much. ATB
