It's a rather poor introduction.  Why is it controversial?  Differing opinions doesn't mean controversy.  I don't like tomatoes, but my friend Ron loves them.  That's not controversy.  The use of the word anyway is inappropriate for a paper.  Save that for chatting with your friends.  An introduction should give an overview of what you are going to talk about.  You haven't offered any information that one couldn't infer from a title for the paper.  Try writing the guts of the paper, or at least have a solid outline, before you write the introduction.
