IELTS Essay, March 2018: Society Should be Blamed for any Anti-Social Activities.

Some people think that only the society should be blamed for any anti-social activities. What are the causes for these activities? Who is responsible for them?

40 minutes, 250 words at least.


Introduction: (Introduce the topic a General Statement and MENTION the causes for these activities. If possible, MENTION those who are responsible.)

The structure of a society plays an instrumental role in the development of its citizens. People carry out anti-social activities if the society is unequal and if it fails at imparting morals among people. Since the unequal distribution of resources is primarily due to political reasons, politicians are responsible for crimes in a society.

Body Paragraph 1: (EXPLAIN the causes)

An unequal society cannot fulfill the aspirations of its youngsters through legitimate channels. Many youngsters, after failing to achieve an adequate education and a respectable job, indulge in anti-social activities such as theft and extortion. For example, since the Indian economic reforms of 1991, the wealth has been concentrated in the hands of the richest citizens and this has increased the incidents of money-related crimes. Moreover, some societies fail in imparting proper moral education to their youngsters due to external factors such as poverty, war or famine. In such cases, youngsters learn to focus on their survival than on ethics and morals. Consequently, society should be blamed for anti-social activities.

Body Paragraph 2: (EXPLAIN who is responsible)

Since politicians have a job to make a society more equal and prevent wars and famines, they should be blamed for most illegal activities. They often fail in carrying out their duty to uplift all sections of society and to ensure that no one is left behind. They often collude with businessmen and bureaucrats to create crony capitalism that benefits a few sections of society only. This leads to concentration of wealth in a few hands.


In conclusion, a society will be more healthy and people will abstain from anti-social activities if it is equitable and gives equal opportunities to everyone. The onus of this change falls on the shoulders of politicians.
