Appealing to the sympathetic emotions of his audience, he nevertheless, mentions the numerous and plentiful patriotic acts of immigrants, of which the native-Europeans would not do due to their laborious nature, “they do the hard work that native-born Americans dislike” (3). Speaking out at this time of prejudice in order to to clarify any misconceptions about immigrants, “ as patriotic as native born in offering the supreme sacrifice”. (4) In his speech Clancy, furthermore elaborates on how he relates to the immigrants affected by the Quota Act of 1921, with his first hand experience. Addressing any relating audience members, he pursues them to think of their own family lineage of which definitely has immigrant blood, if they are actual American’s at this time period, “my own family were all hyphenates” (5). Pertaining with his audience in order to drive his point and share his family experience with being non Caucasian and patriotic “My family put 11 men and boys into the Revolutionary war”
His notions are well rooted in his support for imperialism. This is evident in one of his statements “Either it is or it is not your duty to establish and keep order,” he insisted to British colonial administrators. “If you feel that you have not the right to be in Egypt, if you do not wish to establish and keep order there, why then by all means get out” so that some other more responsible and capable nation might do the job. He was all about being accountable for one’s action. Roosevelt argued for a better control by the government over the
Within Benjamin Banneker’s letter, he implements pathos in order to illustrate the unjust and hypocritical actions of Thomas Jefferson, in order to exhibit that Jefferson, of all people, should be understanding and ashamed of the fear and injustice which he is imposing. Banneker inflicts these emotions through allusions and flashbacks. The United States was once under the British control, leaving the United States feeling helpless, fearful, and impotent. During this time period, Thomas Jefferson, took part in writing the Declaration of Independence, a document which states the equality of men and the justification of freedom. Banneker alludes to the Declaration in the seventh paragraph to exhibit the hypocrisy which Jefferson demonstrates.
In this specific piece of literature, qualities like patriotism and individualism are exceedingly prominent, this all being due to Henry’s use of literary devices. In the first sentence, Henry uses ethos to articulate how he is patriotic to his home, but he occupies diverse views compared to his audience, which shows his individualism. Throughout the speech, Henry uses words such as “ourselves, and we” to exhibit that he is still with the audience- not against them. When Henry said, "Should I keep back my opinions at such a time, through fear of giving offense, I should consider myself guilty of treason towards my own country, and of an act of disloyalty toward the Majesty of Heaven, which I revere above all earthly kings” (1). He is saying that this is what he entails to achieve for his God.
Thomas Paine’s The Crisis does an excellent job of exemplifying the usage of the colonist’s feelings prominently in the content. One of Paine’s purposes in writing such a pamphlet is to convince the colonial Americans that they must not be cowardly by supporting British rule. Throughout his pamphlet, this ideal is displayed in an extremely pronounced manner, with a considerable example in the first paragraph: “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will… shrink from the service of this country; but he that stands it now, deserves the love and thanks of every man and woman.” (Paine 331). He attempts to instill a sense of self realization and motivation in those who have not joined with the revolutionaries, to receive respect and admiration by doing so. To finish out, Paine tries to identify with the reader in the middle of his pamphlet, saying that he “once felt all that kind of anger… against the mean principles that are held by the tories,” (Paine 334).
He focused specifically on the independence of the American people because he was aware that they deserved better, and that Britain was cheating them of their rights. In his essay, The Crisis #1, he directly calls out the British for who they truly are and what they were actually doing. "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;" and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty.” This sentence alone speaks right to the heart of the people, and talks on how important and dire it is that we act now, for the sake of our children, and their children’s future. His intentions were to provoke those not aware or those partially conscious of the matters and risks at stake, the country and everyone in its freedom. And that’s exactly what he did to start a revolution.
(Wilde, 991). This quote is showing that Jack stood up when Lady Bracknell entered the room, which can reveal that Jack is very nervous and lacks confidence. Wilde quotes, “Thank you, Lady Bracknell, I prefer standing.” (Wilde, 992). The author reveals that Jack is concerned and careful about all of his actions, especially when he is in a room with Lady Bracknell. If he was a person with extreme wealth and position in society, he would definitely have the confidence to sit down in a face-to-face conversation with Lady Bracknell.
The movie can be considered progressive in the sense of masculinity because it brought to light to the issue of cross-dressing. Sergeant Farrat grew fond of Tilly and her work with extravagant fabrics. His flamboyance tended to enhance the progressive nature of the character. Farrat’s experience cross-dressing was beneficial as it showed that he was ahead of his time and allowed others around him to be exposed to something they may have believed was wrong. The example of sergeant Farrat is progressive in masculinity because a man in a position of power doing something that is not considered to be masculine such as loving exquisite fabrics and dressing like a woman is considered bold (Inness, Sherrie).
Gandhi advocated for an India that is self-governed in accordance with Indian principles, values, and practices. Not one that simply operates within a British structure. Further, Gandhi allocates a small portion of his book to scrutinize modern civilizations and modern technologies. In this paper, through the examination of Gandhi 's theories proposed in his book "Hind Swaraj," I will contend that although Gandhi 's view of how civilization ought to be and Indian self-rule does hold some truth, there are various deficiencies in his reasoning and what implications his writing has on our modern society. Initially, it is imperative to define Gandhi 's conceptualization of what civilization is.
