  1. I think you have a really interesting topic that is clearly relevant today. In your plan, it is clear you have a good idea of your points and your argument. It is not clear, however, what the flow of your paper will be. How will you transition between these points and logically connect your points? Also, I’m slightly conflicted regarding your clear personal view of this situation. I think it is good you know what your perspective will be, however, it may increase your ethos if your stance is more ambivalent.

But overall, I am very interested in your topic and it seems like you have a well thought out plan. Good luck with writing!
