Check to see if you need to define your terms (”socialism," "conventional," "commercialism," "society"), and then decide on the most appropriate place to do so.
Do not assume, for example, that you have the same understanding of what “society” means as your reader.
It should present the topic of your paper and also make a comment about your position in relation to the topic.
Your thesis statement should tell your reader what the paper is about and also help guide your writing and keep your argument focused.
The sentence that captures your position on this main idea is what we call a thesis statement.
A thesis statement focuses your ideas into one or two sentences.
Shape your topic so that you can get straight to the "meat" of it.
Being specific in your paper will be much more successful than writing about general things that do not say much.
Don't settle for three pages of just skimming the surface.
The opposite of a focused, narrow, crisp thesis is a broad, sprawling, superficial thesis.
