1. Is modern technology making people less creative?

とりあえず、日本語で原案を。
英語もあげます。

創造性とは、新しい価値を生むことである。
新しい価値を生むにあたり、自分と向き合い、物事の基礎を積みかせねが大切である。
私は近代技術は人々を非創造的にしていると思う。近代技術の代表であるインターネットを人は安易に頼りすぎ、その創造の機会を失っている。
例えば、学生が論文を作るとき、インターネットの資料の一部をコピーして張り合わせて作る手法が散見されている。
これは、既にあるものをコピーしただけであり、彼らの価値観そのものだと思う。
これでは未来を担う若者は、社会を築く上で、創造性に欠けてしまう恐れがある。
以上の点で、近代技術は創造性を生まないと結論づける。

こんな文でどうでしょう。

Creativity is the process of bringing new value into being. Creativity requires passion and commitment.
I believe modern technology is making people less creative.
Internet is the greatest achivement of any civilization. People rely on the internet for everything, whereas losing opportunties for being creative.
For example, there are some students who cheat on thier thesis.
They copy the sources from elsewhere online and put them togather as one piece of their own work.
This is nothing but plagiarism, reflecting their sense of values.
Our future lies with a generation of young people that can create a prosperous and equitable society. 
Being such uncriative, however, could ruin the bright future of the young.
As mentioned above, modern technology can bring anti-criativity to people.

2. Is multiculturalism in society a good thing?

多文化主義は社会にとって良いものではないと思う。
確かに多文化主義は文化、民族の多様性を大事にしており、公平性などは民族自決主義の国よりは整備されていると思う。
一方で様々な弊害がある。
第一に、人間は自分と似た容姿の人しか意識的に安心しない点である。
そして、多文化主義の人々は自分と異なる文化で育った政治家を信用していない傾向にある。
それを裏付けるようにある研究では、多文化主義の国の公共費は、民族自決主義の国より低いことが示されている。
これでは社会の地盤が揺らいでしまう。
第ニに、民族自決主義の国とは異なり多文化主義の国はその国の一体感(愛国心など)が担保されない。
政治の梶取りひとつで、文化の境目や価値が 分断されてしまう恐れがある。
それにより、民族間でいざこざがあった場合、国を転覆しかねない危険性がある。
彼らはお互いに差別し、差別が憎しみを生むこともあるだろう。
以上のことから、多文化主義は社会にとって必ずしもいいものでないと主張する。

I think multiculturalism in society is not a good thing. While politics of multiculturalism countries have maintained an ideal of equitable society, where co-existing cultures or races benignly influence one another, there lies flaws of multiculturalism.
First, we are comfortable around other people of similar appearance.
People of diverse communites don't trust a local mayor or the local paper who has a different cultual identity.
To support this fact, some study shows that relatively homogeneous societies invest more in public goods.
Multi-ethnic societies are, on the other hand, less charitable and less able to cooperate to develop public infrastructure.
Second, critics argues that multiculturalism encourage members of ethnic groups to look inward, and emphasizing the differences between groups rather than their shared rights.

Should there be more goverment control of the internet?

One of the most popular yet controversial innovations of technology is the internet.
Despite the benefits it offers, there are also setbacks that drive people push for and practice internet censorship.
I strongly agree with the idea that there should be more government control of the internet.

First of all, parents are not always be there watch out for children.
They have the responsibility to teach children about morality and guide them on what is good or bad but the truth is, they also have to earn a living to provide for their kids.
They do not have the capacity to be on watch on most parts of the day. That's one reason why we need internet censorship.

Another reason for proponents of internet censorship is that it can control illegal activities.
Supporters claim that regulating content in the internet is an effective way to lessen if not totally deter illegal activities because it keeps people from promoting malicious content which can easily influence others, if no regulations are imposed.

As internet we familiar with is a huge bank of data and valuable imformtion we need to access every single day, our government should control more of the internet in order to provide safety for us.

アメリカの似通ったエッセイ見つけて構成しました。参考までに

TOPIC: DOES THE DEVELOPED WORLD HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO HELP DEVELPPING COUNTRIES OVERCOME POVERTY?

The developed countries should help the developing countries to live well by improving their health, education and trade.
Those three fundamentals are basic for developing countries to stand on themselves, so they can independently organize their own people in the future.

First, the health aspect, developing countries face dire problems.
Taking the African continent as an example, diseases such a malaria and AIDS are prevalent, resulting in thousands of deaths every year.
We can open free medical camps in the selected areas of poor countries. In this way free medical advice could be given.

Second, the eduction aspect, assistance in the field of education should be provided to the poorer nations.
The developed countries can provide funds to open new schools and polytechnic institutions.
These will not only increase the literacy rate, but will also provide vocational education.

Finally, rich nations should help to improve the economy of poor countries.
This can be done by promoting free trade.
This will reduce barriers to international trade such as tariffs, import quotas and export fees and will help to lift the developing countries out of poverty.

To conclude, if we want to live in a better world with peace and harmony, we should always help each other.
Therefore, I believe that richer nations have a responsibility to help the poor countries in all the fields.

TOPIC: DOES THE DEVELOPED WORLD HAVE A RESPONSIBILITY TO HELP DEVELPPING COUNTRIES OVERCOME POVERTY?

こんなのどうかな?感想求む。

I think helping developing countries overcome poverty is one of the important missions of the developed world. I have two reasons to support my idea.

First, a tremendous amount of money needs to be poured into solving the problem of poverty in the world. It is rich countries’ responsibility to help the poor
through various means; OECD, grant aid, NGO support and so on. From humanitarian point of view, countries with money must do so to save people who are
dying from starvation, malnutrition and diseases that can be prevented by monetary aid and medical support.

Second, helping developing countries overcome poverty eventually leads to eradicating terrorism. Poverty is often cited as the cause of violence.
Those living in a wealthy country should put themselves in shoes of those living in poverty to understand how desperate they are. Can we blame those
who resort to violence in desperation who are given a choice between death from starvation and violence? With our help, whether it is monetary or technically,
they will be given hope. Hope is what people need to live in peace. Contributing to ease the world poverty will in turn lead to reducing the number of terrorist attacks.

For these reasons, I believe developed countries must help poor countries rise from poverty. We should start today to do our share of saving people in need.

I think helping developing countries overcome poverty is one of the important missions of the developed world. I have three reasons to support my idea.

First, a tremendous amount of money and energy need to be poured into solving the problem of poverty in the world. It is rich countries’ responsibility
to help the poor through various means: OECD, grant aid, NGO support and so on. From humanitarian point of view, countries with money and power must
do so to save people who are dying from starvation, malnutrition and diseases that can be prevented by monetary or medical aid.

Second, helping developing countries overcome poverty may eventually lead to eradicating terrorism. Poverty is often cited as the cause of violence.
Those living in a wealthy country should understand how desperate those people are. With our help, whether it is monetary or technically, they will be given hope.
Hope is what people need to live in peace. Contributing to ease the world poverty will in turn lead to reducing the number of terrorist attacks.

Third, developed countries can donate money or send volunteer teachers to help children in developing countries receive formal education.
Educated children will grow into capable leaders who could someday get the nation out of poverty.

For these reasons, I believe developed countries must help poor countries rise from poverty.
We should start today to do our share of saving people in need.

【TOPIC:Do the world's wilderness areas need to be better protected?】

Wilderness cleans our air and filter our water, without which Earth cannot sustain human beings. This clearly indicates that we must protect world's wilderness areas.
I have three reasons to support this idea.



First, Ecological Footprint has shown that our modern lifestyle exceeds the capacity of Earth by 30%; Japanese standard of living, In particular, by 130%. This is due to carbon emissions.
Thus, our planet needs more biocapacity to equalize this. Something has to be done.



Second, let's consider animals, experts claim that there are now roughly 17,000 species facing extinction around the world.
Some are directly caused by humans, for instance: black rhinos, for its precious hone; blue whale, for its valuable flesh.
Is this acceptable?



Lastly, ocean is another wilderness besides the ones on land.
One of the controversial matters among marine scientists is global marine pollution.
Did you know that approximately 1.4 billion pounds of trash per year enters the ocean? 


In summary, we are continuously becoming the burden of wilderness.
We need to take steps to solve these problems.

TOPIC:Should minors who commit serious crimes receive the same punishments as adults?

I believe that minors are too young to receive the same punishments as adults.
I have three reasons to support this idea.

The primary reason why minors shouldn't be punished is because the environment they grew up in deeply affects their way of thinking.
Hence, it is more likely that they may commit crimes if they were raised in a dysfunctional family. In most cases, they have witnessed domestic violence even in their neighborhood on a weekly basis.
Young minds can be easily shaped, thus if given proper guidance, they can make wise decisions in the future.

In addition, several studies show that the decision making part of the brain continues to develop until individual's mid-20's.
This means that juveniles delinquency account for immature brain function, providing the evidence that there should be extenuating circumstances in minors' crimes.
Adults should play a role model on how to behave in order to prevent them from poor decision making.

Last, unless we provide minor convicts proper education and ethical guidance giving a basis to develop a strong moral compass, the likelihood of their crime relapse will remain in high.
In fact, two third of former convicts are arrested again within three years after being released from imprisonment.

In light of points mentioned above, minors are too young to receive the same punishments as adults and most importantly it's them who will be taking the lead in supporting our societies after all.
