Discussed overpopulation and population policy
Responses should be 200 words PER student
1) In the responses to the students on the Middle Ground discussion, let the student know which argument appears to be stronger: the original claim or the new middle ground claim. Please make sure to explain why.
2) If you disagree with both claims, that’s fine – let the student know why you disagree in a bias-free manner.
For my Rogerian essay I discussed overpopulation and population policy. My claim was that overpopulation is a concern, but enacting population policies could pose significant threats to civil rights, and therefore all such policies should be voluntary and focus on public health programs (female empowerment, education for girls, health care access). Looking back on it, I feel that I probably did lean more Middle Ground than Rogerian in general throughout the essay, but I could have stood to strike even more Middle Ground. I discussed the current state of the population, and then I discussed the various opposing arguments including the already decreased family size of most affluent nations, the fear of China’s one-child policy, and potential civil rights violations. For each of these arguments, I addressed the rebuttal. I explained that affluent nations actually use far more resources than developing nations, so it is even more important that they address their growing population. I explained that the one-child policy and civil rights concerns are legitimate, and measures must be taken to ensure that they never occur. But then I discussed how various public health protocols have been proven to have the secondary effect of decreasing the average family size (and therefore the size of the population).
If I were to argue more of the middle ground, I would have discussed more in depth how poverty, lack of access to care, and the resource utilization of affluent nations significantly contributes to overpopulation. I was very mild, and I took great care to be sensitive to the topic of family size. However, it might have made more of an impact if I addressed more clearly exactly why these initiatives MUST be taken – not just for the population – but for the advocacy of human rights in general.
I plan to utilize the Toulmin, Rogerian, and Middle Ground models of argumentation for the remainder of my career. The beauty of these three arguments is that they are both simple and easily adaptable to the situation. In my research-based future, I anticipate that I will be utilizing the Toulmin method most frequently. I plan to utilize logic and credibility to make a case for certain hypotheses and argue their case. However, I also plan to go into policy throughout my time as a doctor. Given that, I also plan to utilize the Rogerian and Middle Ground models in order to present a certain protocol and argue its merit. For example, I might have the opportunity to establish certain public heath within my hospital (or city). By utilizing a Middle Ground approach, I would be able to concede certain opposing points (cost of program/incentives, etc.) yet be able to (tactfully) rebut each point and argue the logic and benefits of enacting public health programs throughout the city. I am excited to begin trying them out!
We have reached for final week of this course. For my Rogerian method essay I choose to write about conscription. In my essay I took the side of being for it, and all the benefits it would provide. Taking a middle ground argument, could mean having citizens serve their country just not in a military role. Citizens would have the option of serving in a military role or a Government Service role like the Peace Corp. Citizens could also serve in government organizations for their two years. I think the middle ground solution could be one that would work and is more practical.
During this course I have learned a lot, It has been hard for much of it because I have been in and out of the hospital with labor symptoms and severe illness. I can hopefully use all that I have learned here in this class to better enhance my argument abilities in discussions. I can also uses what I have learned here to better get my point across when I am dealing with people who do not want to listen to my side of an argument, and bring people around to see the side I am trying to present.
I chose to discuss Common Ground Argumentation on my Toulmin Essay about the Veterans Affairs (V.A.) and the lack of healthcare and amenities open to the Veterans of the United States Military. My claim for my essay was: The current healthcare provided to military veterans in the V.A. (Veterans Affairs Hospital) is abysmal and requires new healthcare professional customer service, better ways to cope with veterans needs, and more universal care in regards to treatment to ensure adequate means are available and given to each and every veteran who requests them. I proved this claim by laying out certain scenarios of how the V.A. has allowed individuals to be mis-diagnosed, put on a waiting list (where many people died due to the severity of their illnesses/conditions) and how the Secretary of the V.A. believes that they are doing all they can to make it better.
If I were looking at doing a Middle Ground Argument, I would have found more articles of the good that has come from the new V.A. reform since the induction of the new Secretary and go talk to the nearest V.A. facility which is about 15min from where I am currently stationed to get a good in-depth look at how they are making their specific office better for the veterans and their families. I would focus on the positives more than the negatives to shine light on a great organization that truly cares about their veterans. Seeing as I would make a newer claim to how it does some good for the veterans, I would keep most of my original claim, however, I would add main points about the good that is happening, but also add how it could possibly get stronger. I think I had quite a few sources for the good that the V.A. does, but I would find a couple more to solidify the claim I am presenting. I believe a middle ground solution to my issue would be more beneficial to both sides rather than just pointing a finger and saying “You’re wrong”. I believe it would allow us to actually find a practice for the veterans that helps both sides.
So as I have stated many times before, I am a Police Officer in the United States Air Force and part of my job is dealing with people who love to argue with me. Now, I do not always get the final word or even the best word, but part of my job is to go with the no B.S. facts using credible sources while coming to a sound and just conclusion, just like the essays we have been asked to research and complete during the timeline of this course. I will be starting at Sacramento State come January 19, 2019 and will be going through Air Force ROTC to come back into the service as an Officer, for which I have not been given a job yet. I have completed all pre-requisites (as long as I pass this final paper)
For one of my essays, I chose to write about the importance of electric cars and how they are are the future of transportation in the Toulmin argument style. In this argument, I showed the history of the electric vehicle and the when, where, and how it was developed. I then showed the pros and cons of owning one and compared them to standard gas engine automobiles. I eventually concluded my argument by showing the advancements in batteries and charging capabilities from the company Tesla motors prove that electric automobiles can compete and in a lot of cases outperform gas vehicles by having the same range, style, features, and comfort.
If I chose to write the middle ground for this same topic I probably would’ve had had many of the same points speaking to the history and pros and cons of both electric and gas vehicles and the importance of both. To choose the middle ground I would have incorporated the rise of hybrid vehicles and how they take the best of both worlds and combine then by having a vehicle that takes gas but transitions to battery power while at cruising speeds to exponentially increase range and reduce the number of times you have to pay for more gas at the pump.
I would have claimed that hybrid would be the way to go for the time being until charging times to reduced to minutes instead of an hour plus to save time while on longer commutes. I do feel like a would have to have a few additional sources to research the importance and stats on hybrid vehicles to compare them to their competition.
The previous claim I choose to use for this week’s forum is from my Rogerian argumentation essay. My claim was that in regards in maternity leave, men should be offered the same amount of paternity leave as females. I was able to prove my claim by using studies from the department of labor. In the study they found that paternity leave was vital to men in the workplace because it enables fathers to build a bond with their newborn and to help the mother while she medically recovers. Paid paternity leave also serves a incentive in the workforce which could potentially increase job satisfaction.
If I were to approach this topic using the middle ground method, the following could be my claim: Paternity leave is a great asset to males both personally and professionally. Males should be offered the opportunity to take paternity leave without pressure or judgement from the workplace or society. Based off the middle ground method I would not change my original claim. I would not add additional sources to prove my claim, but I would have elaborated more on the topic in order to further support my claim. The middle ground method is much more practical solution to my claim.
After learning all of the lessons in this course, I received the most information on the different types of argumentation writing styles. This class has informed me of different ways to prove my claim when writing essays. I know throughout this journey to obtain my degree I will have many more essays to write. When writing future essays, I will be sure to implement the writing styles I have learned. Currently, I do not foresee myself incorporating what I have learned into my career.
