As for the modern society in which we live today, the ability to make truthful and strong arguments is a must. These arguments are demonstrated daily in courts, Congress and even in everyday life in the household. Practice shows that almost everyone who is capable of having an own opinion is capable of making arguments. But for making the relevant and valid arguments, any person must take into consideration some questions. For example, it is important to understand what the audience is which is expected to read or to listen to the arguments. Also, it is needed to know about the presence of the main points which must be expressed decisively and clearly, also all the arguments must be supported.
William A. Henry and John Grisham are two unusual and extraordinary writers. Both men nationally renowned the authors who are immune of being in front of lots of people during the public meetings. In fact, William A. Henry wrote the work which is called “In Defense of Elitism” and John Grisham wrote the essay which is called “Unnatural Killers”. Reading both these works, readers can see the arguments. But considering these essays more deeply, we can see that both authors give these arguments in different ways. And if Henry supports his argument with the truthful facts, Grisham gives just his own opinions one everything what is described. These essays are the great examples of two different ways with the help of which it is available to make an argument. However, one of them is considered to be more efficient in making stronger arguments.
In the essay “Defense of Elitism” of William A. Henry, one fact is discussed which tells that the government of America allows so many students to go on to college. But it sounds really completely contradictory to the beliefs and statements of the higher education. In the essay, the author goes so deeply in explanations of his beliefs. So in his essay, there is information that 63% of students are going to continue their education after high school, and 30 % of graduators from the high school receive a four-year degree.
Henry shares his point of view, which means that allowing this for lots of students puts the debt on the society. In fact, approximately one hundred fifty billion dollars is given by the government for the college purposes. The author believes that representatives of the society teach too many students to be the best leaders because the realization is that thing which must have followers.
