Please i need Help with this essay.. I have no idea what my three main points could be PLEASE HELP ME!?
One does not necessarily have to cluck in disapproval to admit that entertainment is all the things its detractors say it is: fun, effortless, sensational, mindless, formulaic, predictable and subversive. In fact, one might argue that those are the very reasons so many people love it.
At the same time, it is not hard to see why cultural aristocrats in the nineteenth century and intellectuals in the twentieth hated entertainment and why they predicted. as one typical nineteenth century critic railed, that its eventual effect would be “to overturn all morality, to poison the springs of domestic happiness, to dissolve the ties of our social order, and to involve our country in ruin”

I need those three main points to back up that i defend the assertion that entertainment has the capacity to “ruin” society
You already have your main thesis, which is that entertainment has the capacity to ruin society. Now you need to answer how and why entertainment has this capacity in order to find your 3 main points:
i. Maybe entertainment can ruin society because it is so distracting. For example, if kids and teenagers fill all of their time with entertainment instead of education, then how might this ruin society?
ii. Maybe entertainment can ruin society by overturning morality. What are some ways that entertainment might change a society’s moral principles for the worst? For example, do violent video games cause people to believe that killing is not morally wrong? If so, how would this ruin a society?
iii. Maybe, as your quote above claims, entertainment does dissolve the ties of social order. Does entertainment contribute to increased crime or civil unrest? Can you think of ways that entertainment directly or indirectly causes a society’s rule of law to break down?
To conclude, you will be able to find 3 main points by answering how and why entertainment has the capacity to ruin society. Your 3 points could look something like the following: i. entertainment’s distracting nature contributes to a society’s ruin, ii. entertainment overturns a society’s moral principles, and iii. entertainment dissolves the ties of social order. Your essay would defend these 3 points by explaining why/how entertainment can do these things. Each point directly supports your overarching argument that entertainment has the capacity to ruin society. If this helps you, please give me a “best answer” vote.
