Think carefully about the issue presented in the following excerpt and the assignment below.
It is unrealistic to think that any group of people—a family, a committee, a company, a city—can function peacefully and productively without some kind of authority. The needs and interests of the individuals who make up any group are too varied for its member to operate as a unit without having someone to make the final decisions. Somebody has to be in charge; somebody has to be ultimately responsible.
Can a group of people function effectively without someone being in charge?
Plan and write an essay in which you develop your point of view on this issue. Support your position with reasoning and examples taken from your reading, studies, experience, or observations.
