IELTS Writing Task 2 Topic:

Some people argue that capital punishment is a brutal decision and should be abolished. Do you agree or disagree?

Sample Answer

It is no shadow of a doubt that the word ”Capital Punishment” itself seems brutal but regardless of its nature, often incidence of abhorrence and violence in countries create such a horrifying circumstances for present and future generations that ultimately challenges law to accommodate peace and justice.

With acts of capital crimes such as those claiming dozens of life on a daily basis, it is quite easy for a society to become desensitised to the carnage and to take it as an unavoidable fact of the life. For any developed or developing countries, progress and prosperity are reliant on a mutual balance of education, economy and law; the loss of any one of them from the chain consequently risks an irreversible damage to the system in the long-term. Hence, it is impossible to create a sustainable development of a country with the lenient law system.

I believe that strict law for instance capital punishment in a society keeps an awareness of the fact that criminals are approachable for their any negative act against humanity. Newton’s law stated that “Every action has a reaction” same way every extreme illegitimate action should be responded by a strict legitimate reaction.

In conclusion, despite the differences of perception towards the matter, I do not agree for the abolition of capital punishment on the basis of being a brutal decision. If any government’s judiciary would prefer abolishing such punishment as being brutal, they would be responsible for such severe perdition that would not let them progress peacefully.

  • desensitise (Verb): to make someone react less strongly to something by making them become used to it
  • Carnage (Noun): when a lot of people are killed and injured, especially in a war
  • Reliant on: dependent on someone or something
  • Irreversible damage: Damage that is so serious or so great that you cannot change something back to how it was before
  • Lenient (Adjective): not strict in the way you punish someone or in the standard you expect
  • Abolition (Noun): when a law or a system is officially ended
  • Perdition (Noun) Complete destruction or failure
