I suppose it's then a matter of deciding what are the pro's & con's of the question. There are always two sides to an argument, try to find a balance, a middle way. What are the good points, what do you think are against the question, does it drive your imagination, or does it leave you flat, are you excited or do you feel negative? How did people in the past regard the question at the time? What were the consequences? Could it be reasonable to think people knew the outcome at the time ? I suspect the question is really saying 'can you find a balanced view of', it's probably best to take a middle course, unless the subject matter is really contentious.
