you can choose any topic. u might chose to write on the topic of wealth and power, government, or justice. Your topic can also reflect the concerns of one of the writers we read; for example, you could analyze the economic structure of a contemporary society, discuss wealth distribution, effective governance, civil disobedience, think about freedom in relation to social realities, etc. You do not need to discuss the topic in terms of the literature or theory—you just need to further investigate a topic that has caught your interest.
Basically, choose a topic that you don’t know much about, and make a research.
