A broader perspective promotes better understanding, brings people together and increases the chances of world peace. It helps create empathy and sympathy both at individual and societal level. Thus, it should be encouraged in education and through the media. You can start now by following the advice of Bertrand Russell who famously said and I quote: “ In all affairs, it is a healthy thing now and then to hang a question mark on things you have taken for granted”.  Do our research and write an essay discussing the advantages of a broader perspective.
Refer to my second blog, The Essay Archive, for sample essays:
