“Do you agree or disagree with the following statement?
The most important problems of our society can be solved during our lifetime.”
Personally, I do not think that many of the struggles or sufferings【头韵用词】of human beings can be solved before I can no longer breathe.Instead, I believe that they will persist or seem to be solved but actually appear repeatedly with adeceptive new packaging yet unchanged nature. 【套路之“反问句”：“强词夺理”给出观点】Why do I hold such a pessimistic【正负评价词暗示观点】view? 【措辞技巧: rhetorical question】
The first reason is based on the history. Many of the problems we are dealing with have long been difficulties since they first bothered us in the past. 【论证：举例法】For example, people can still die young of illness.【顺承衔接】At this point, the opponents may find counterexamples that experts have been finding curesfor more and more diseases that used to be lethal and are able to effectivelyintervene 【干预(良性的)-正评价】before the conditions take lives.【转折-拉回观点】However, while increasing numbers of patients are cured, even moreunprecedented fatal viruses and pathological changes are also discovered. Theirrefutable fact is that there will always be conditions that can take one’s lifein the one’s prime. 【接下来，短句舒缓一下节奏】 Another example is crime. Has it ever stopped? 【措辞技巧: rhetorical question】 As a matter of fact, not only does【倒装】it remain stubborn, it also varies [vary] through time. To name a few specific cases, fraud has always been a problem, and corruption has never been eliminated.
The other major reason is the flaws of humanity. It is fair to believe that many of our deficiencies can never be fixed, and as a result, the most important problems, 【非限定从句舒缓一下语流】 which are the result of those defects, can never be fixed. 【前方高能句式：假设论证的排比用法，建议背诵】 + 【论证：假设法】 If we humans were able to restrain our greed, there would be no more fraud or corruption. If we humans were able to quit our gluttony, there may be reduced incidence of illness. If we humans were able to curb our temper [curb one’s temper], there would be less violence. Unfortunately, none of the conditionals have ever been and could never be real cases, and consequently, few of the many problems that we struggle with could be solved.
Admittedly, it is fair for any optimistic individual【不定式的平行现象】tostand opposite me, to rebut my idea and to argue otherwise. They may be seeing a small picture in which a number of specific problems are solved indeed and therefore seeing only the sunlight, however. I believe that I see the greater picture.
