In revising general statements, always ask yourself why the subject is important to you. Why do you want to discuss this subject? Then ask the following questions:
1) What relationship does my subject have to another subject?
2) What relationship does my viewpoint have to another viewpoint?
3) What relationship does the author’s viewpoint have to another author’s viewpoint”?
Once you establish the specifics, you can establish the connections, and you thereby bring in more detail, by default.
