This prompt indicates that five paragraphs need to be written. The first paragraph is an introductory paragraph that contains an attention-getting statement and the essay's thesis statement. The thesis statement is the main argument of the essay, and it will be discussed in the following three paragraphs. The final (and fifth) paragraph will be the essay's concluding paragraph that summarizes the previous three paragraphs and pushes readers toward caring about the argument being made.

The prompt provided also indicates that the essay should discuss some kind of point followed by a discussion that functions as a rebuttal to the first point. Due to that requirement, I recommend a thesis statement that starts with the word "although." Starting with this word will force the thesis statement to begin with a dependent clause that must be followed up with an independent clause. Have the dependent clause be the initial statement, and the following independent clause will be the rebuttal. For example:

Although the process of unwinding benefits many of the people that receive Unwind parts, the downsides to unwinding far outweigh the benefits.

The three body paragraphs that follow should support that statement. Use the first paragraph to explain the benefits of unwinding. Touch upon the fact that no part of the Unwind is wasted, and mention that unwinding technology is what stopped the war between Pro Life and Pro Choice factions. The remaining two paragraphs should focus on the reasons why unwinding is detrimental to the society as a whole.
