(55) He also reveals to us that he feared embarrassment. Everybody who reads this knows the pressure and expectations for something and not being able to do it. “All those eyes on me-the town, the whole universe-and I couldn't risk the embarrassment.” (57)
In Michael Levin’s “The Case for Torture”, he uses many cases of emotional appeal to persuade the reader that torture is necessary in extreme cases. There are many terms/statements that stick with the reader throughout the essay so that they will have more attachment to what is being said. Levin is particularly leaning to an audience based in the United States because he uses an allusion to reference an event that happened within the states and will better relate to the people that were impacted by it. The emotional appeals used in this essay are used for the purpose of persuading the reader to agree that in extreme instances torture is necessary and the United States should begin considering it as a tactic for future cases of extremity. One major eye catching factor of this essay is the repetitive use of words that imply certain stigmas.
In reference to a bill introduced to Congress forbidding the use of tactics defined by torture; The United States government must consider all of the ethical options and possibilities they have. Torturing anyone is morally unethical but allowing terrorists to murder innocent civilians is against every moral we, as humans possess. As morally just people America needs to find the exceptions in which we are willing to use torture in countering terrorism. As leaders of the free world our government has the responsibility to do everything in their power to protect innocent people and gain the needed information to do so. In order to win the war on terror, officials will occasionally have no choice but to torture the terrorists withholding information to prevent these attacks on humanity.
The tone helps the reader build the characters life story, and how they feel at a certain time. Sometimes the author may put figurative language to portray what the character is feeling, and sometime if the text is extravagant, it may cause the reader to feel the same way, such as this quote, “One more stab to the heart, one more reason to hate. One less reason to live.” (page 109). This is such a powerful emotion of hatred toward something that is very sad, such as when Eliezer lost his father.
“ They tell us, sir, that we are weak; unable to cope with so formidable an adversary. But when shall we be stronger?” this statement weakens the spirits within the colonist due to the intolerable acts. Although Britain thought the act would help them strengthen it was undermined by the presence of increasing the military activities. According to henry no matter what happens the war will come, “ The war is inevitable and let it come!
[we] are pained to the core by the tragedy.” At many other points in the speech, he discusses this “national loss.” This use of wording unifies Americans through this tragedy. By addressing and saying that he is hurt by it as well, he lets America know just how impactful this event was. Reagan uses diction to appeal to people’s emotions or pathos throughout his
This line promotes the focus because any unauthorized relationship by the Party is prohibited. Breaking any rule against the Party results in serious consequences, yet Winston and Julia loathe those stipulations tremendously for their combined disagreement of the Party. Even though they are two people, the rebellious act itself could trigger a potential mass law breaking of the Party and its rules. Lastly, Winston and Julia hear about the Brotherhood and attempt to pursue a position by stating an interest in joining the rebellion to O’Brien: “We believe that there is some kind of conspiracy, some kind of secret organization working against the Party, and that you are involved in it. We want to join it and work for it.
He regards his shame he expresses for the Holocaust while showing how horrendous this event was. In his speech, Schroder uses rhetorical elements pathos, ethos, and logos, and the uses of these elements will help the reader better understand the speech. For instance, Schroder uses pathos in his speech to appeal to the audience's sympathies and imagination. He mentions what victims went through on a daily basis, and
He pleads with his audience trying to turn America away from the “already critical stage of depression and self degradation.” His proposal entails the increased “usage of antidepressants” in order to “restore our well being.” Employing the black-and-white fallacy, Termorshuizen portrays his satire by revealing the only two options for America consist of mental enlightenment or total destruction, separated only by antidepressants. Applying this, he appeals to the logical minds of the reader who realize that antidepressants may not fix the issue, and also points out the ridiculousness of the advertised issue of annihilation due to
He feels that the opinion of the general public is that we are losing the war. However, his opinion is that ISIS is being defeated and “is today’s most significant threat”. One interesting argument that Mockaitis makes is that the upsurge in terrorist activity might be a sign of weakness. He writes, “As ISIS is squeezed in its heartland, it lashes out farther abroad in a vain attempt to intimidate the United States and its allies.”
government must acknowledge the program’s mistakes and correct them to bring them in line with international law and a smarter strategy. Part of this is acknowledging the civilian deaths caused by strikes and apologizing to victims’ families. The U.S. has taken steps to reform the program, reportedly tightening the rules for targeting (along the lines of Boyle’s suggestion to only target High-Value enemies). But without transparency, there’s no way for the public to know what is actually happening and to evaluate the program’s success, except leaks. The war will continue in secret, any ineffectiveness hidden, except to the innocent
The letter to Amir from Rahim Khan made Amir’s life better. Although it may outwardly seem that Amir was put into another series of difficult decisions and misery, the end result that Amir was desperately struggling to look for is worth it all in the end and Rahim Khan was just there to give him a little push. Rahim knows Amir very well and what he wrote was made with good intentions. Amir is a cowardly person; it’s just who he is, and that he just needed reassuring.
