The Essay: A fight for existence

calvin-writing.gif
I only have one and half terms to go before I (hopefully) gain my professional qualification in youthwork, A black belt in informal education snappily entitled a ‘JNC!’ Although it has at times been a frustrating experience given that there is no recognition of 20 years experience and prior training, I am enjoying it. The area I am struggling with though is essays *shudder!* In the Darwinian battle for available time the dominant meat eaters, as it were, are clearly family, work, home and the like. Essays exist merely as an ill-equipped herbivore struggling not to become extinct. BUT sometimes a looming headline gives them that evolutionary edge and they fight back. This being one of those ocassions I am sitting in a coffee shop battling with,
‘Critically discuss the ways in which new Labour have sought to identify and tackle social exclusion in relation to the young people you work with’
However my PhD from the University of Life (a highly accomplished piece of research in the art of Procrastination) is kicking in big time. I have done 500 words BUT then decided to use an Essay Generator to see what it might come up with. Sadly the results (below/continue reading) are not going to cut-the-mustard but amused me nevertheless 🙂 Shalom

An essay on Social Exclusion
In this essay I will consider the social, economic and political factors of Social Exclusion. The constantly changing fashionable take on Social Exclusion demonstrates the depth of the subject. While it is becoming a hot topic for debate, spasmodically it returns to create a new passion amongst those who study its history. Crossing many cultural barriers it still draws remarks such as ‘I wouldn’t touch it with a barge pole’ and ‘i’d rather eat wasps’ from those politicaly minded individuals living in the past, many of whom blame the influence of television. Complex though it is I shall now attempt to provide an exaustive report on Social Exclusion and its numerous ‘industries’.
Social Factors
Society is our own everyday reality. When Lance Bandaner said ‘twelve times I’ve traversed the ocean of youthful ambition but society still collects my foot prints’ [1] he shead new light on Social Exclusion, allowing man to take it by the hand and understand its momentum. Both tyranny and democracy are tried and questioned. Yet Social Exclusion cleary plays a significant role amongst the developing middle classes.
Some analysts have been tempted to disregard Social Exclusion. I haven?t. It has been said that the one thing in society which could survive a nuclear attack is Social Exclusion. This is incorrect, actually cockroaches are the only thing which can survive a nuclear attack.
Economic Factors
Derived from ‘oikonomikos,’ which means skilled in household management, the word economics is synonymous with Social Exclusion. We shall examine the Fish-Out-Of-Water model, as is standard in this case. Transport
Costs
Social Exclusion
Indisputably there is a link. How can this be explained? Seemingly transport costs cannot sustain this instability for long. The financial press seems unable to make up its mind on these issues which unsettles investors.
Political Factors
Modern politics owes much to the animal kingdom. Contrasting the numerous political activists campaigning for the interests of Social Exclusion can be like looking at 0
We cannot talk of Social Exclusion and politics without remembering the words of nobel prize winner Vatusia Skank ‘political change changes politics, but where does it go?’ [2] Considered by many to be one of the ‘Founding Fathers’ of Social Exclusion, his words cannot be over-looked. History tells us that Social Exclusion will always be a vote winner, whether we like it, or not.
While Social Exclusion may be a giant amongst men, is it a dwarf amongst policy? I hope not.
Conclusion
In summary, Social Exclusion is both a need and a want. It enriches, brought up a generation and figures show it’s a winning formular.
One final thought from the talented Whoopi Morissette: ‘At first I was afraid I was petrified. Thinking I could never live without Social Exclusion by my side.’ [3]
