Essay Topic:

Students are were expected to write an essay of about 250-300 words in 20 minutes. This time instead of essay writing there is a paragraph. “The statesman who would attempt to direct private people in what manner they ought to employ their capitals, would not only load himself with a most unnecessary attention, but assume an authority which could safely be trusted to no council and senate whatever, and which would nowhere be so dangerous as in the hands of a man who had folly and presumption enough to fancy himself fit to exercise it.” You have to give Judgement with justification and support it with example.
