SEGUNDA PEC MUNDOS ANGLÓFONOS. ABRAHAM LINCOLN GETTYSBURG ADDRESS 1863. MARÍA DEL MAR VIDAL VIÑA 26/03/2015 This is a political speech given by Abraham Lincoln during the American Civil War in Gettysburg ( Pensilvania ) on 19 of November in 1863, four and a half month after the Gettisburg Battle. Abraham Lincoln became the United States' 16th President in 1861, issuing the Emancipation Proclamation that declared forever free those slaves within the Confederacy in 1863. Lincoln believed that secession was illegal, and was willing to use force to defend Federal law and the Union.

During that period until our days the Emancipation Proclamation has been admired by some citizens but criticized by others because it did not actually free all slaves in the United States, rather it declared free only those slaves living in states not under Union control. As stated before, this proclamation did not free all the slaves because it was actually set up as a double-face strategy by Lincoln. Lincoln made it clear with an entire paragraph the states or parts of states which were in that moment in rebellion with the United States and in which this executive order would be

Truth is ‘self-evident’, all mankind is ‘created equal’, and are granted ‘unalienable rights’. Government is a tool created by the people and with their consent and subject to abolishment should it fail to serve mankind. These ideas were revolutionary, inflammatory and strictly opposed by the governments of the day; that tended to be monarchial, dictatorial, or oligarchical in nature. Only a philosophy of metaphysical idealism could inform such a document. His ideas concerning the rights of man are also completely consistent with his idealism and even allowed for the freedom of the enslaved populations around the world and throughout the British Empire.

Ever since then both groups have been pointing to the prior injustices commuted by one another, in case of Hutu – years of oppression under colonial rule and Tutsi – discrimination in post-revolution times and forced exiles. A 1973 coup d’état established a Hutu regime under president Habyarimana, who concentrated all political power in his own hands, backed by a single MRND party and security forces. The Rwandan Civil War broke out in 1990 with the invasion of the Rwandan Patriotic Front (RPF), comprised of second-generation Tutsis, whose main goal was to provide the opportunity for all refugees to return to their homeland. The war brought economic deprivation and contributed to furthering of societal division on the basis of race, wealth and place of living (urban vs. rural). The war ended in 1993 with the signing of Arusha Accords that were supposed to create a power-sharing transitional government, the merge of armies with equal representation and gradual return of refugees.
There can be many barriers that leave people with a feeling of helplessness which overpowers those who are unable to communicate effectively. Communication barriers do not just impact one part of society. The cultural barriers that society faces today are more complex than they have ever been in the past. Correct communication revolves around all aspects of people’s lives and not being able to communicate effectively can put great strain on society as a whole. Change brings communication differences to a minimum but there are still many areas where more radical change is greatly needed.
