Please edit this essay, but minor edits only. So instead deleting my words and making the essay shorter etc., I need you to just replace the words that doesnt make sense or just rephrase sentences. Also, please do not delete any of the sources(quotes) that I have used. I need all of them. So if the sources that I have used doesnt match the essay properly, you can alternate it a little by adding square brackets. Please edit this essay so it sounds more professional, makes more sens, and flows more smoothly.
