Grade my 3rd essay? :D

<p>Prompt: Should people make more of an effort to keep things private? (What a dumb prompt, FYI.) </p>

<p>Essay: </p>

<p>Technology definitely facilitates life for many people. Yet often times, things we wish to keep a secret is out open for everyone to see. Celebrities serve as a great example for this fact. Whatever the information might be, certain details about people's lives should be kept private. Examples to support this thesis are drawn from literature and history. </p>

<p>An example of this is found in the contemporary novel, "Joy Luck Club," by Amy Tan. Tan talks about Chinese mothers and hubris being their greatest fault. Due to that fact, the mothers tend to tell everyone about their daughter's accomplishments and deeds. The daughters would like to keep that a secret, yet the mothers want to dispel this unnecessary information to everyone to satiate their own personal pride. This leads to multiple conflicts between the pair and reaffirming the fact that some details should be kept private. </p>

<p>Another instance of this is in the Watergate Scandal. When information was stolen about the Democratic Party campaign and had the direct involvement of President Nixon. This lead to a mass hysteria and a magnanimous loss of faith of the government by the public. Although Nixon resigned and what he was doing was illegal, the newspapers did not neewd to report this event. It only went to harm the status of the government who tries to protect us day in and out. </p>

<p>One great example can be found in Dicken's Novel "A Tale of Two Cities." This novel mainly deals with the love of Lucky Manette and Charles Darney with the undertone of the French Revolution. The revolutionaries kept their dealings private, thus leading to a successful revolution. However, if they had not, then most probably the government would have caught and executed them. They maintained the facade of normalcy to hide the undertone of revenge. </p>

<p>Somethings ought to be kept private. This statement has been supported with examples from Joy Luck Club, the Watergate Scandal, and A Tale of Two Cities. Privacy is a major issue in the United States and will continue to be a hot topic for centuries to come.</p>
